My kids love these burgers #empireburger #greenwoodburger #joeburger ... reviews from my household. Greatest burgers ever. The veg burger #greenwoodburger is the best. Mum we dont want burgers from other places anymore.
Guys for a good burger I will definitely be going to empire. Their burgers are the best. From the taste of the patty to the delicious bun. The staff are friendly and always smiling. We will be going back regularly...
My wife and I visited Empire to buy a hamburger for lunch. Seeing that it was a new burger joint, we were more curious than hungry to see what was on offer. By nature, maybe more by choice, we are not fans of pizzas or burgers; though my wife loves it. When we entered the store we were caught off guard, but were in awe of the marvelous interior view (definitely the most eye catching burger joint I've ever seen) of the store. The cleanliness, freshness, colour and lighting was exquisite. I also have to congratulate you on the neatness and friendliness of the staff, save the fact that it was obvious they were still new and learning. Although the burger I ordered was only the baseline, (a week later I bought the flagship Empire Burger), it was sufficient enough to judge the quality of the product. The presentation, smell, taste and freshness were of high quality - honestly the best I've tasted anywhere. After we indulged I could feel I ate something, and there were no bad aftertaste as one would experience with burgers from other well known burger joints. At first I was very skeptical about the coffee or Cold Brew and I am NOT a fan of ice coffee or coffee shakes, but was pleasantly surprised at the taste, and can now recommend it to others. There was no overwhelming coffee taste or bad aftertaste in the mouth. Hereby I thank you for this experience we had. You are on the right track!
Visited Empire Burger Co on their first day of business. We noticed the menu is small - this is good! Every other burger place has so many things to put on the burger that the burger is lost with all the toppings. We don't want to taste sauce, we want the sauce to be a compliment to the deliciousness of the meat. So, the small menu means their not afraid for us to taste the meat!
Ordered the Empire Burger. First thing we noticed was the bun. John Markulis, part owner of Puritan Bakery ( producing 36,000 buns every hour for In n Out and many other restaurants) said, "There are two ways you sell a product: eye appeal and taste appeal. And, with a hamburger, the first thing you do is taste a bun," The bun of the Empire Burger was great! Soft, did not absorb the oil of the burger or the sauce. Toasted just right and had a taste that beckoned another bite. Toppings were minimal, but in a good way. Too much and you can't taste the meat. The only thing we missed were the sweet onions that are grown by Wildeklawer. They would have made it the perfect burger. But even without them, this burger was amazing.
Chips were great and fresh. We tried one of the cold brewed coffees with cream and sugar. What a delight! We (my wife and I) fought over the one drink. Have to buy two next time!
Bottom line - great food! True burgers made to order and definitely worth the wait!
