It’s not mostly that we get to try new fast-food enterprises in Knoxville, yet when we saw a crony contend some certain things about Burger Boys on Facebook, we knew I’d have to go have a look-see. The Grub Spouse tagged along for cooking recently, and even yet there’s no interior seating there (drive-throughs and walk-ups only), a continue was easy adequate to concede us to sequence from a window and sup al fresco, to a balmy sounds of Chapman Highway traffic.
Burgers are indeed a featured fare. The half-dozen options embody a Kobe Burger (with sautéed onions, immature peppers and beef sauce), a Dante Burger (topped with onion straws, light mustard and American cheese) and a Vol Burger, that is custom-made to your specs.
All burgers start with a half-pound of 80/20 beef, solely a Big Dom Burger, that is a full pound. we picked a Lil Dom Burger ($4.50), a half-pounder with mayo, ketchup, jalapeno peppers, peppers jack cheese, tomato and lettuce. All burgers and sandwiches also come with giveaway French fries (and not a bad selling gimmick during that).
But that’s not all that’s in store during Burger Boys. The menu facilities a duck sandwich, duck wings and several variations of multi-piece duck dishes (fried or barbecued), that can be fabricated with white meat, dim beef or a brew of both. You can even get particular duck pieces a la carte. The Spouse went with a two-piece barbecue-chicken meal, breast and drumstick ($6).

Side dishes embody white rice, collard greens, candied yams, crushed potatoes and immature beans, yet The Spouse went with mac and cheese and potato salad. For a record, Burger Boys also fries adult specialty equipment like livers and gizzards, and we can get boiled roost or trout in sandwich form.
We took a seats during one of a handful of outside tables, any of that has an powerful to yield some shade. We were still strike by a low setting sun, yet a wait was pleasing and brief adequate that a feverishness was no factor.
Thumbs-up on a burgers for sure. It was good to puncture into a fresh-from-the-grill chunk of beef, and a uninformed lettuce and tomato complemented it nicely. Of course, a jalapeno peppers and peppers jack cheese combined a conspicuous yet not powerful kick. As one competence expect, a side of fries was not an measureless portion, yet it wasn’t petty either. It was a satisfactory allotment, generally deliberation it’s enclosed in a meal.
The duck cooking was utterly enjoyable, too. The sour and tender grilled pieces were prohibited off a smoker, yet while a sides were flattering good, they didn’t mount out as strongly as a categorical dishes.
We motionless to pass on a dual accessible desserts, cheesecake and honeyed potato pie, yet this is really a usually grill we can remember that has ever offering a latter provide as an option.
Overall, Burger Boys is really doing some things right. For one thing, a value can’t be beat; a whole meal, drinks included, was around $13. Also, a owners were super good and accommodating. They went out of their approach to make certain a cooking knowledge was a certain one, and they done us feel right during home. And, of course, a food hold a own, generally a burger. There are few places in city where we can get a fresh, well-crafted, half-pound burger for reduction than $5.
A few things could be tweaked. Canned sodas were a usually splash choice available. I consider adding bottled H2O would be a certain move. And a paper towel dispenser that serves in a place of paper napkins could presumably be rethought, yet conjunction of these factors would be adequate to inhibit me from visiting Burger Boys in a future.
So if you’re a burger fan, and it’s been awhile given you’ve gotten to try something new in town, take a brief drop into South Knoxville. You have small to lose, generally when it comes to your wallet.
