Spice Burgr recently took over for the space at the downtown Orlando Plaza that once belonged to grilled cheese sandwich shop Meltz. If the name “Spice” rings a bell, it’s because the owners of Spice Burgr are the same as the owners of nearby Spice Modern Steakhouse at Lake Eola.
It’s a counter service restaurant – order at the counter and the order is delivered to you when ready. I guess it’s the next evolution of the fast food restaurant with better ingredients. The decor is anonymous – minimal and white – and rather forgetful. The staff was friendly enough, but at times they appeared a bit lost and unsure about who ordered what when the orders became ready.
I ordered the Traditional – always a good base to start off with, I supposed. It was all right, juicy and slightly flavorful but nothing to denote any memorable “spice” moment. The fries came out hot, but needed a little salt. It was $5.95. I’d have to go back to try their other burger varieties and choices like the California Spice burger – topped with lettuce, tomatoes, sliced avocado, pico, cheese, “Burgr sauce” on a buttered bun and a side of fries. There is also a Burger of the Month, or BOM, that changes monthly.
Overall, Spice Burgr just did not leave much of an impression – spicy or otherwise – on me.
I went to this place right when it first opened it isnt that good.
Not sure why your review of this place is not that favorable. Perhaps you should come back again and give it another try. It’s not uncommon to have a place that starts and work out the kinks. It happens in everything – I have been to this join numerous times and while I can acknowledge it was not all perfect when they launched, their food is quite good and yes, even memorable.
Thanks Mzen for the insight, I will definitely go back and try again, just that it was rather unimpressive the first time and that is my experience. I think it has potential for sure, just needs a little something…
