Entering a health-conscious, gluten-free, vegan-friendly restaurant, you might not expect to savor a juicy burger, but oh, you will.

Unfortunately, at dinner they do only offer one burger. Instead of beef, you’ll bite into a buffalo burger with balsamic onions, pear and cheddar cheese. But if you’re craving a patty and buns, you only need one good one. However, at lunch, dig into their buffalo burger or opt for turkey or veggie.

Price Range: $14 to $18
