I recently attended the VIP Grand Opening of BUILTÂ® Custom Burgers in the Triangleâ€™s NEW Alston Town Center in Cary. It was surprisingly only fourteen minutes away from my house and itâ€™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 BUILTÂ®, first and foremost I love the option to â€œbuild my own burgerâ€ 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 itâ€™s one price fits all. So, no matter how many toppings you put on your burger itâ€™s the same price! Can you say FREE unlimited toppings? I canâ€™t remember the last time I wasnâ€™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 Â¼ lb or Double Â½ 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 couldnâ€™t have everything that was originally on it. So, I went with the Double and added Lettuce Blend, Applewood Smoked Bacon and SautÃ©ed 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 BUILTÂ® 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 itâ€™s not time consuming. Itâ€™s perfect to grab and go if youâ€™re always on-the-go like me and donâ€™t have a moment to dine in. I would highly suggest setting some time aside to have a dine in experience. Itâ€™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.
