Mooyah, a burger chain, opened up near where I work a few months ago. I had never even heard of Mooyah before this one opened, but I looked up locations on their website and saw that they have locations in quite a few states and a few places internationally. There are a ton of them in Texas so maybe that’s where it originated? No idea. Anyway, I had never heard of it until one opened up two minutes away from work and a few of my students told me they were working there. They had been asking me when I was going to go check it out for a while and over winter break I finally went one evening when I was in the mood for a burger. I was wondering whether I would run into any of my students who work there and I did see one of them. She asked me if I would blog about the burger – I told her maybe and took pictures just in case!
I went the simple route and ordered a classic – the Mooyah Cheeseburger – which is Angus Beef, American Cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and Mooyah sauce on a potato bun. Oh and an order of fries. The burger was tasty, but greasy as you can see in the pictures below! Even the top of my burger was shining with grease.
Aside from the greasiness, the burger was good and flavorful. How would it rank amongst other burger chains? Well, it didn’t leave me feeling too full like Five Guys and Smashburger sometimes do. Sometimes those burgers sit in my stomach and make me feel gross. So that’s a plus. But I don’t think it’s as good as Shake Shack. So I would rank it above Five Guys and below Shake Shack. Do you have a Mooyah near you?
