A&W has launched their newest line of Bistro Burgers – Bistro Buddy Burger, Bistro Teen Burger, and Bistro Uncle Burger. All 3 have the addition of the grilled onions, arugula, tomato, cheese and garlic aioli. Only the Teen Burger and Uncle Burger have the added pepper bacon. All 3 are available for a limited time only.
I tried asking for the Bistro Burger as a Papa Burger, but they did not allow it at the location I went to, so we just grabbed the Bistro Buddy Burger and Bistro Uncle Burger.
Bistro Buddy Burger
The Bistro Buddy Burger has seasoned 100% pure beef patty, topped with fresh arugula, grilled onions, tomato, cheese and garlic aioli between a toasted bun.
The buddy burger version is a good snack size or for someone that needs something extra but not a full burger. I didn’t feel like the arugula added much to it as there was very little of it. The cheese also masked the garlic aioli too.
Bistro Uncle Burger
This has a seasoned 5oz 100% pure beef patty, topped with fresh arugula, peppered bacon, grilled onions, tomato, cheese and garlic aioli between a toasted sesame bun. This was better than the buddy burger as it had the added peppered bacon to it, but we also felt the arugula didn’t do much for the uncle burger either.
It’s good that they tried adding more fresh ingredients that you would normally find in a burger like arugula, tomato and cheddar, but it really didn’t add too much to the overall experience. I still prefer the regular buddy burger and uncle burger. I usually love their limited edition burgers that they release but these didn’t stand out very much.
