Butcher & The Burger (Boca Raton)

Do you know what the saying “Dead on Arrival” means? Sure you do!

Last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats went to Boca Town Center to “try-out” Butcher & The Burger a new “gourmet” fast food burger joint which opened a couple of days ago in the mall’s food court.

For color, Jeff Eats was following up on a “tip” from Son Jeff Eats who had recently eaten in the Butcher & The Burger located in Chicago. Son Jeff Eats had reported delicious burgers/hand-cut fresh French fries/shakes. For the record, Butcher & The Burger has 1-free standing store in Chicago and the Boca outpost is its second outing.

Now, you guys know that Jeff Eats is a simple guy (I know what some of you are now thinking)…anyway-I was looking for a cheeseburger/French fries/Coke. According to the joint’s sign-board, that trio would have cost Jeff Eats $8.95 for the burger, $4.25 for the fries (small order) and Coke—throw in 6% sales tax and Jeff Eats’ meal would have run $13.99—Mrs. Jeff Eats’ turkey burger-side salad-Diet Coke would have run $13.78 (she has always been a cheap date). The owners of this joint must be kidding! For crying out loud, this is a food court fast food outing—$27.77 for this meal is absurd.

Just a word to the wise, if Jeff Eats thinks that Butcher & The Burger’s prices are too high—go to the bank-that most folks walking around that food court are gonna think the same thing.

DOA!!!

Let me wrap this one up for you…

Butcher & The Burger may have delicious food…but this meal didn’t “happen” because of price. One other thing that caught my eye, Butcher & The Burger’s shakes run $6.50—while Chik-fil-A (in the next-door booth) gets $3.69 for its shakes (yes! I know that you can’t get Chik’s shakes on Sunday)…

Butcher & The Burger is opened 7 days a week during mall hours.

    I usually don’t go to the food court when I’m in town center.
    Been following this saga so today while shopping with my wife I checked this one out.
    Signage is bad news.
    Same for the decor.
    The company that owns this stall should get busy and make changes ASAP.

  2. Rob A says...

    I give them 6 months.
    Nobody except that 26 year old kid is looking to eat a gourmet hamburger in a mall food court.
    That’s just the way food courts roll.

  3. Lou Adler says...

    Ate in food court last night. Not too much business all around. tried the new pizza place and the food was excellent. Great find there.
    As for this burger place, very boring stand and sign board is very hard to read.

  4. Rachel M says...

    had a veggie burger, ff and a drink. cost $12.
    burger was cold and tasteless.
    fries were bland.
    just a waste of money.

  5. RaceyJones says...

    Was in food court this pm
    The signage is terrible for The Butcher and Dandelion right next to it. You can barely read the signs. The decor for both of them is very lame and uninteresting.
    I notice a few customers in 20 minutes or so that I was there. Maoz was jammed. Earl of Sandwich wasn’t very busy either.

    To The Owner:
    You better get that signage better really fast. You also better get your decor lighter and fresaher looking. Assuming you want a chance to make it. Checked out your location yesterday and its a very poor setup. Wish you good luck. Be a smart fellow and at least give yourself a fighting chance.

      Yelp readers give or take one or two hate this place.
      They said food stinks, help stinks, overpriced, signage stinks, decor stinks.
      Where did we first hear all of this?
      That’s right, http://www.jeffeats.com

  11. Laura says...

    Jeff
    Was in food court today.
    They now have cheaper burgers and specials they got rid of the shakes.

  13. Jim Mahoney says...

    Jeff,
    Yesterday I was at Town Center around 3pm and checked out the food court.
    The court was very busy.
    Burger now has cheaper prices and did away with the shakes.
    I guess the guy paid attention to you.
    I will tell you that the counter people he has aren’t the sharpest looking. Same goes for the Mediterranean stand he has right next door.
    The guy in the Med stand at the counter didn’t look to clean to me and he was touching food with no gloves.
    The signage looks better on Burger but still sucks on Med one.

  14. Greenman says...

    sun sentinel gave them 2 1/2 stars today. that’s between fair and good.
    not too good of a rating.

  15. CLEANMEAN says...

    THE BOARD OF HEALTH SHOULD CHECK OUT THIS STALL AND THE ONE THAT THE GUY OWNS NEXT TO IT.
    THE HELP ESPECIALLY IN THE MED.ONE DOESN”T WEAR GLOVES BUT IS BUSY TOUCHING THE FOOD AT THE COUNTER. I WATCHED ONE WORKER RUB HIS HANDS THROUGH HIS HAIR AND ADJUST HIS PANTS AND THEN TOUCH A CUSTOMERS FOOD AT THE COUNTER. DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!

  16. JW says...

    Ordered a cheeseburger and ff.
    16 minutes later order came out.
    No cheese on burger.
    They took the burger back and brought it right back out with a piece of American cheese on the burger, cold and not melted.
    Place is a disaster.
    Will definitely fold.

  17. Donny G says...

    I am in the fast food business.
    The owner of this one has absolutely no idea as to how to run a fast food outlet.
    The signage stinks.
    The counter people slovenly looking with no personalities.
    The food is passable at best.
    The wait time is way too long for fast food.

  18. KIT KARSON says...

    Jeff,
    had the burger and ff.
    Ok, but not great.

  19. Ted23 says...

    Was in mall today. Doing little business. It’s sister Dandelion next door is almost totally dead. Just a matter of time to this guy folds both of them.

    • Belairshopper says...

      Same today … people were eating, just not at the Butcher & Burger.

  20. Sid L. Turner says...

    not good.

  21. gary says...

    Was at the mall yesterday. They are no longer open….

  22. robertw says...

    Rob A called it-6 months is what he said in April. With the food business everyone thinks they have the greatest idea or concept. Employees can make or break you in that business. Clearly costs to run a food count are high rent so you need volume or you are clearly dead. I think they have a few decent places in the food court there. I wonder why it doesnt pull more people. Maybe the buyers are too high end?
