It's not just your typical burger joint, however. They use organic and locally produced ingredients in all their offerings. The place is decorated with big portraits of some of the farmers that produce their ingredients.
MOO started as a food truck in Wrightstown and has branched out with the restaurant that opened on January 23. You can read more about how MOO came about in this article from Bucks County Taste.
They offer a somewhat limited, but tasty-sounding menu--burgers, hot dogs, fries, salads, grilled cheese sandwiches, chili, soups, birch beer floats, locally-made (NJ) sodas, etc. The prices aren't the cheapest, but considering what you pay in a McDonald's or Burger King, it's well worth it.
Mary Beth ordered the Moo Burger--a cheese burger that comes with lettuce, onion, pickles and "moo-goo" (their version of special sauce). Jake ordered just a plain burger. I went with the Moink--the same as a Moo Burger, but with bacon. (Get it? Moink?) MB also got some homemade butternut-apple soup. Jake and I got fries, too.
I wish I could report that everything was wonderful. Nothing was bad, but, for example, the fries were a little limp and could have (should have) been more crispy. They made a mistake on our order--brought Jake's burger with cheese when it was supposed to be plain. I chalked these problems up to simply being new. I look forward to tyring it again in a month or so once they get their "restaurant-legs" under them.
As for the burgers, they were delicious. The meat is ground on-site and you can tell. The patties are hand-formed and have a nice crust on the outside. They are incredibly tender and flavorful. Mine was a little on the rare side, but I didn't mind since it was freshly ground. So if burgers are what they're known for, then they're on the right track.
When we got there, we were the only ones in the place. But soon, it filled up--good to see for another local business promoting good, local food.
