I recently attended the VIP Grand Opening of BUILT® Custom Burgers in the Triangle’s NEW Alston Town Center in Cary. It was surprisingly only fourteen minutes away from my house and it’s a straight shot for me down Hwy 55. The location is 5033 Arco Street Cary, NC 27519. There are so many reasons I am excited about BUILT®, first and foremost I love the option to “build my own burger” and it makes it very easy for me to just add ingredients I can tolerate due to my food allergies.
You get 100% Angus Beef with NO hormones or antibiotics, the chicken is ALL NATURAL, ALL NATURAL Turkey, Vegan Veggie options and it’s one price fits all. So, no matter how many toppings you put on your burger it’s the same price! Can you say FREE unlimited toppings? I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t nickel and dimed for extra sauce or to add bacon or any other topping for that matter. You have a variety of toppings, sauces & dressings to choose from.
There is a Single ¼ lb or Double ½ lb. that you can choose from. You also have the option to choose a bun or bowl and your toppings and choice of protein will be on a bed of greens. There are Brioche, Whole Wheat and Gluten Free Buns available. The bowls come with Mixed Greens or a Lettuce Blend. There are also pre-styled burgers to choose from if you opt not to build your own burger. Carolina Style, N.C. Heat, The L. A. Way, Panther Club and the Breakfast Burger.
Fries & Tots are the sides available and you can get regular seasoned French fries, sweet potato fries, Tater Tots, Sweet Sriracha Fries or Tots and Garlic Aioli Fries or Tots. I wanted to try the Carolina Style Burger but had to re-create it and build my own because I couldn’t have everything that was originally on it. So, I went with the Double and added Lettuce Blend, Applewood Smoked Bacon and Sautéed Mushrooms with French Fries. I also had a Vanilla Shake to top it off!
This location is the first standalone location in the state. There is a BUILT® location at the Streets of Southpoint in the food court. I really like the concept of building your own burger or bowl with fresh ingredients and it’s not time consuming. It’s perfect to grab and go if you’re always on-the-go like me and don’t have a moment to dine in. I would highly suggest setting some time aside to have a dine in experience. It’s great and you get to see everything happen right in front of you.
Bonus: Starting Friday December 8th, through Sunday December 10th, all guests will receive a side of popular garlic or sweet sriracha tots with the purchase of any burger.
