Feast on a Flight of Mini Hamburgers at BurgerIM

BurgerIM isn’t your typical burger chain. First, there’s the name. BurgerIM first launched in Tel Aviv, and its name comes from “burgerim,” which means “many burgers” in Hebrew. Here, you’ll get many mini burgers rather than one big one. This fast-casual eatery, which opened its newest location in Arlington in early February, specializes in three-ounce burgers. This makes them bigger than the typical slider, but small enough so you can eat more than one. The burgers are sold in flights of two, three or sixteen. 

The idea here is variety, allowing eaters to customize all of the components of each burger. Ten types of patties are available, including beef, lamb, chicken and turkey. After that, pick one of four styles, including California, which combines Swiss cheese, mixed greens, tomato, avocado and chipotle mayo, or the Classic, which has the typical burger fixings like American cheese, lettuce and tomato. The buns can be white, wheat or a lettuce wrap. For those who don’t eat meat, BurgerIM also offers meat-free options, like falafel and a veggie patty made of lentils, tofu and veggies.
