We have been hearing “You should try “E.O.” Burgers,” for the last several months. E.O. burgers stands for Extra Ordinary. Being burger connoisseurs, we set out to The Greene Outdoor Mall in Beavercreek to give it a shot.
E.O. Burgers restaurant is not a chain. Their meat is free range, 100% USDA Prime Beef — a standard only met by 2% of all restaurants in the U.S. All of their burgers can be served on an Arnold brand “skinny bun” which is a low carb, low calorie thin multi-grain bun or on whole wheat or regular buns. Your Food Adventure, your choice…
Our so-called “food runner” told us we could “cluck it” to make any burger on the menu chicken. They also have portabello burgers, veggie burgers and a turkey burger option.
E.O. offers 2 sizes of burgers: regular 6 oz burgers, or large 9 oz burgers. We thought it would be best for our belts to go with the smaller burger since we were also delving into the fries.
Try the Bourbon Street burger on a skinny bun. This came with 2 toppings: grilled onions and hot peppers. The burger also features a homemade Cholula mayo sauce which gave the sandwich an extra kick. We loved the fact that no grease was dripping down our hand while indulging in this burger. We also ordered a side of Parmesean Fries which we enjoyed dipping in the Cholula mayo.
The Big Ragu ordered the E.O. Classic Cheeseburger that he topped with various sauces from the condiment caddy. The foodie purists ridicule him for desecrating the burger with so many sauces. Ragu skipped the onion rings served with “sassy sauce” and instead ordered herb-rubbed fries with rosemary and thyme. We think Ragu needs to be rubbed down with herbs as well, next Food Adventure.
The fries are hand cut daily. You can also get a “ring fry” which is half fries, half onion rings. E.O Burgers also has a full bar with several offbeat draft beer options.
One of the curious things about this place is that there was a custard machine with an “arm” of custard hanging out. They use the custard for shakes, cones, and sundaes. All of their kids’ meals come with a cone! Also, with any adult meal, you can buy one half price ticket for the movie theater across the street.
The restaurant’s atmosphere is comfortable and casual with great music. The staff was friendly and there is an outdoor patio area. It was a nice break from the bustle of The Greene. To all of our friends who recommended this place, you were right, it is great! We enjoyed every bit.. whoops, BITE of this Extra Ordinary Food Adventure.
