Who doesn’t love burgers? With all the burger joints across the country, if you would hazard a guess you’d probably say “no one.” Exactly. But with all the kinds and varieties out there, finding the perfect one for you can be an exercise in futility. Unless you design your own.

This is what makes Rounds Burgers the perfect stop for any burger lover (even vegetarians!).

At Rounds Burgers, it only takes six steps to design your own burger. The first step is choosing your protein. You can choose from all-natural lean ground beef, fresh made lean turkey patty, all-natural grilled chicken breast, or fresh made veggie patty.

Once the protein has been chosen, step two is choosing your sauce. Sauces available include garlic aioli, thousand island, buffalo ranch, chipotle ketchup, tabasco ketchup, chipotle aioli, buttermilk ranch, jalapeño ranch, pesto mayo, and BBQ sauce.

The third step is choosing your free toppings. You can choose to top your meat with a tomato slice, shredded lettuce, pickle chips, red onions, or grilled onions.

Step four is adding cheese. You can choose between Monterey Jack, mild cheddar, yellow American, imported Swiss, or blue cheese crumbles. Or you can opt to go cheese-less if that’s your thing.

Next, if the free toppings aren’t enough, step five lets you add premium toppings. You can add just one, or go all out and add them all. Premium toppings include fried egg, avocado mash, homestyle chili, crispy onion strings, sliced fresh jalapeños, breaded jalapeños, sautéed mushrooms, grilled pineapple, green chile peppers, and crispy bacon strips.

The sixth step is choosing your bun. You can choose the recommended fresh bun, a lettuce wrap, fresh wheat bun, or have your burger over lettuce.

Of course, if you’re in a rush and just craving for a burger, you can opt to order one of Rounds’ specialty burgers such as the Western (crispy onion strings, bacon, and BBQ sauce) or the California (thousand island, American cheese, bacon, and avocado mash), or just the Classic (lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles and thousand island). All these specialty burgers can be made with any of the 4 proteins.

Whether you are a meat lover, a vegetarian, a spicy food addict, cheese aficionado, or overall lover of good food, Rounds Burgers will have something for you. And if it doesn’t? You can whip up something on your own, and that’s the beauty of Rounds Burgers.

From plain burgers to specialty burgers, or designing your own with everything on it, the possibilities are endless and the only limitation really, is your imagination.
