Burger Boss makes the impossible possible with health, all-natural vegan patty

What once seemed impossible for practicing vegans is now quite doable at Burger Boss. The Southern California chainlet offers vegans several options with its house-made black bean patty, vegan Gouda cheese and 100% GMO sunflower oils used to transform raw potatoes into golden fries.

Plant-based meat substitutes have sky-rocked in popularity as they mimic meat with their texture and taste. But several of these products have come under scrutiny lately by dieticians and nutritionists who have found meatless alternatives to be overly processed and high in sodium.

“Our aim at Burger Boss has always been to offer a high-quality product,” said Mo Farha, founder. “Our beef is from small Pacific Northwest ranch co-op and is grass-fed. The same high standards apply to our vegan patty, which is made in-house by our burger masters using black beans and spices. Top it with a thick slice of Gouda, which is also vegan, add all your favorite toppings and sauces, wrap it in lettuce and you’re good to go.”

With a diverse menu, Burger Boss makes it effortless for carnivores and vegans to dine together. The restaurant, which is slated to open its first Los Angeles location in West Hollywood later this spring, also uses 100%, non-GMO sunflower oil to turn potatoes into golden fries.

“Many burger-centric restaurants are now offering options for non-meat eaters,” added co-founder Kamil Finan. “But just because it’s a plant-based product doesn’t mean it’s necessarily healthy. Read the label of some of these products and see if you can pronounce what’s in them. If you can say black beans, cilantro and spices, then you can order a black bean patty burger from us. That’s what sets us apart from the competition.”

Burger Boss is also one of the only restaurants using sunflower oil to make fries, too. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the balance of fatty acids found in sunflower oil, including a decent amount of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid, aids in lowering cholesterol. Sunflower oil also boosts heart health and energy while improving the immune system.

“Eating outside the home should be about options,” add Farha. “And with five protein selections, three different buns including one that is gluten-free, several cheeses plus lots of toppings and sauces to select from, we’re reaching a larger and more diverse guest.”

With its unique ordering process, Burger Boss puts the guest in charge by inviting them to “boss their burger” using an interactive, touch-screen kiosk where they visually build-their-burger on a flat screen monitor and place their order when finished.

It’s a five-step process where guests select their:

  • Protein – grass-fed beef, cage-free chicken or turkey, or black bean patty
  • Bun – white Kaiser, wheat grain or gluten-free
  • Cheese – from American and blue cheese crumble to sharp cheddar, gouda and more
  • Sauce – from traditional 1000 Island and Heinz Ketchup to chipotle mayo, honey Dijon, Sriracha and more
  • Toppings – turkey bacon, organic egg, grilled pineapple, avocado as well as more traditional offerings, such as tomatoes and grilled onions

Burger Boss, which has been named the Best Burger in the Inland Empire year after year, has locations in Riverside, Newport Beach, Tustin, Mission Viejo, and Cypress with will open later this spring in West Hollywood. Delivery is available via Door Dash, GrubHub and Postmates. For more information, visit burgerboss.com.
