Sam and Kathy Vergos, whose family also owns Original Market Diner on Harry Hines and the Circle Grill on Buckner, have opened a new spot, Better Burgers, at the southwest corner of Lemmon Avenue and Inwood Road.
The menu has the standard sandwiches, like a single, double, chicken, mushroom, BLT and a griddle cheese trio. Toppings include bacon, guacamole, coleslaw and fried eggs.
All the burgers are served on either a pretzel or whole-wheat bun. Six different cheese options include the usual suspects plus a Danish bleu and goat-cheese spread. There are several sauces to adorn your burger, including a garlic aioli mayo and a Dijon honey mustard horseradish.

The Vergos cut and grind their meat daily, so it's never frozen. Same goes for all the fries (Idaho, sweet-potato and purple potato).
There are also six different salads on the menu, including a burger salad, a Greek feast, Southwestern and a chicken Caesar. And they have Idaho purple potatoes that were recently touted by Dr. Oz for their heath benefits.
A burger combo with fries and a drink is $9.20.
They've got some interesting things on the menu that keep it from being just another burger joint, and while those purple fries may look a little crazy (photo below), they're as good, if not better, then a plane ol' Idaho russet. Pinky promise.
