When you think of the most American food, what first thing that comes to mind? A Ballpark hot dog? Corn Dogs? Nachos? Taco-in-a-bag (walking-taco)? Chicago-style pizza? BBQ anything? Wings? The food that comes to mind for me is the classic American Hamburger.
The burger is considered a quick and easy meal that anybody can make, and you can personalize it in many different ways to make it your way.
One Orange City restaurant looking to help you get a burger your way is Metro Burger, located on Central Avenue.
It’s about a half mile away from campus. Metro Burger provides an alternative to coffee shops for people who are looking for something different.
“It’s a great fast food option with unique burgers and it’s relatively cheap,” said Jason Hiebner, a senior sports management major.
Another thing Metro Burger offers is the reasonably priced menu. Nine different sandwich options cost between $4.25-$5.
Customers also have the choice to customize their burger with an extra patty ($1.25), bacon mixed into the patty ($1), and/or the full send option which includes onion, tomato and lettuce ($0.50).
To make your sandwich into a meal, it only costs customers an additional $3 to add a soft drink or water and fries, or for $5 they can add a soft drink and upgrade the fries to one of the other nine side options.
Metro Burger also offers dessert options. They offer funnel cake fries ($4), scotcheroos ($1), pie ($1) and fried Oreos ($4). The final thing that sets Metro Burger apart from some other restaurants in Orange City, is that it is open on Sundays.
“Metro Burger has a friendly atmosphere. They have some scrumptious patties, and it’s a cool option for Orange City to have,” Hiebner said.
Metro Burger is a fast food restaurant that has a basic, focused menu. Their limited menu allows them to focus on providing quality. You can dine in and enjoy the flag themed decor, picnic tables and booths that add to the eclectic design, or you can take your food to go.
Metro Burger also offers online ordering on their website www.metroburgeriowa.com. Metro Burger is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 11:30 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
