4 Ounces Burger Co has just opened in Alexandria and take it from us, they’ve taken the burger game to a whole new level, and everything here is RnB themed (literally everything). From the graffiti-esque wall art to the names of burgers themselves, and of course the background music—is it too soon to use the words ‘whole new level’ again?
Half the fun is choosing your burger, with names like the cheezy yeezy (two beef patties, with liquid cheese, deep-fried truffle mac ‘n’ cheese, pickled green tomato, and onion, all on a milk bun); and the birdman (southern-style fried chicken, American cheese, Westmont pickle, tomato, and house sauce, also sandwiched between a milk bun). If you’re up for the challenge, then order one of The Ol’ Dirty, which involves a glazed doughnut bun from Donut Papi.
If you’ve been wondering where this joint gets its name (of course you have been), it’s all because the beef patties are made from a four ounce ‘special blend’, sourced straight from hand-raised cows in Orange. The venue is sustainability-focused, so all of the other produce is sourced locally too—we’re talking about chicken from sustainable butcher Feather and Bone, plus milk buns from charity bakery, Bread and Butter Project—so you know everything is going to be fresh.
