national mechanics – national veggie burger

I’ve added the National Veggie Burger at National Mechanics to my lenten burger list ever since I read about it on Mac & Cheese. Since I’ve been working in Center City a lot last week, it was the perfect opportunity to try it.

Accompanied by steak fries and a pickle, the National Veggie Burger is served on a fresh roll with your choice of cheese (I went with cheddar), lettuce, tomato, and red onion. The bun was perfectly crusty with a light, airy inside. The veggie patty consisted of julienned carrots, zucchini, broccoli, and mushrooms. It was slightly crisp and flavorful; you could taste all the veggies in it. Glad to have a veggie burger that wasn’t made up of beans, not that that’s a bad thing. You just don’t find beanless veggie burgers very often.

Also, National Mechanics has a burger special, Monday to Friday from 11 am – 7 pm. $7 for the National Burger or National Veggie Burger. Not a bad deal at all!

    I haven’t been to National Mechanics since they opened. They used to have ads about their veggie burger that it was the greatest veggie burger on the planet. I was disappointed when I had it. It was a very mushy burger and a strange consistency. I’m with you about not having a black bean veggie burger, but I also don’t like mush. Maybe it’s gotten better since then. If I ever go back, I’ll stick with the Frito Taco Extravagenza. They haven’t updated their draft list in about 4 years also.
