Best Burgers In New Have, ConneticutThis place is adorable! Tucked on the corner of Temple Street is Prime 16. The best burger I have ever had and I will tell you why. It was healthy and I didn’t feel terrible and guilty after eating it. Prime 16 uses local ingredients, Fresh, All Natural Angus Beef, No added Hormones, No Antibiotics, Non GMO Vegetarian Feeds. I literally had no grease on my hands after eating their burger and fries.
The inside was cozy and the service was great. For a Friday night it was not busy either but this is a college town during the summer. So, I can only imagine the madness during school season.
Now for the food:)
The appetizer we got was the Rings of Fire. Normally, I am not even affected by spicy food but this brought me to tears. I mean that in a good way too, that means I’m impressed. I think it was because the jalapenos are grown locally so they have even more of a kick to them. They are beer battered fresh jalapenos served with a five cheese fondue dip. They were amazing, especially if you need to clean your sinuses out. Just saying.
Now, for the burger. There are a ton of options! We had the Sriracha Bacon Burger. Yeah you can re-read that if you want. It does exist. Hungry yet? Just wait for the description. Drumroll please, It is a ground beef patty topped with maple smoked sriracha bacon, aged Vermont white cheddar, drunken onions, romaine lettuce and sliced tomato. It gets even better. We got the whit truffle parmesan fries as the side. Like I said, this place is really healthy and you can have amazing food without feeling guilty after. I didn’t feel a weighed down full, I felt light and refreshed. If I was a local, I would be there all the time.
