The Critic's Apprentice recommends The Burger Company 

New to the restaurant scene is The Burger Company, which has already found a spot on the palates of Charlotte's residents. Located at 1500 W. Morehead St., this burger bar has it all. The restaurant touts in-house ground beef for its tasty burger options, ranging from the simple cheeseburger to the Left Coast Burger stuffed with American cheese and topped with avocado mayo, cucumbers, tomatoes and jalapeno. With these burgers are a few favorite sides, including fried pickles and sweet potato fries. The restaurant offers a large list of beers with several on tap, including Charlotte's own Old Mecklenburg Brewery.

On my trip to the restaurant, I went for the Bacon Cheeseburger. It was my little test for this new restaurant. If they could make the simplest burger well, there was no worry whether they could handle the rest. A few minutes later, the burger arrived in front of me. The bacon was crispy, the cheese was melted, and the burger itself was juicy with just the right mix of seasonings. The Burger Company had passed the test.

The group I had gone with was a bit more daring with their orders, but as I had found out with mine, they had nothing to fear. Throw in the low check average of about $10 per person for dinner and The Burger Company is a winner. I'd say the competition had better watch out for this new challenger.
