Eating at Boston Burger Company could tell you a lot about people, and quickly. Are they playful enough to order The King ($8.50), a burger topped with peanut butter, fried bananas, and bacon? Or traditional, choosing the staid Boston Burger ($7.50), cloaked in lettuce, tomato, and onion? Or entrepreneurial, building a hamburger masterpiece with mango salsa and pineapple? Do they order conch bites ($7.95) on the side - a daring choice - or go with more familiar onion rings ($5.95)?
If you're in Somerville and looking for an excellent burger, look no further. The service is well intentioned, but a little uneven, and it definitely lacks in atmosphere, but for a good basic burger, it can't be beat.
