Last month I decided to check out 5 Napkin Burger, which opened last year in the Back Bay, and was pleasantly surprised by both the food and service. This chain which started nine years ago in Manhattan is not your Mom & Dad’s idea of a burger joint. Designed to appeal to 20-somethings, inside is colorful and includes large booths (no doubt a necessity for people who dine here regularly). Burgers are a tad pricey but they are also extremely generous portions (all burgers are 10 oz) so bring your appetite.
5 Napkin Burger offers a large and friendly bar and although there is nothing “healthy” on the menu, the appetizers are a good option if you would prefer a few bites and drink at the bar. BosGuy’s favorites were the Pork Taquitos and Onion Rings, which I might add go great with one of their many craft beer options.
Although reservations on Friday and Saturday nights might be a good idea, walk in service is generally available. You can find 5 Napkin Burger at 105 Huntington Avenue at the Prudential Center. Burger lovers should check out 5 Napkin Burger.
