Anyone who lives in the Westchester area is familiar with the Westchester Mall in White Plains. As the Mecca of suburbia shopping, it only makes sense that there are dozens of restaurants that reside in its shadow. While it may be the new kid on the block, The Westchester Burger Company may soon become the fan favorite of the neighborhood.
Located where the iconic Finn McCool’s (and the short lived Hito) once stood, Westchester Burger Co. has a game plan for how to steal the hearts and stomachs of the masses. While it has just opened up and is going through some early “soft opening” growing pains, the burgers are tasty and the selection is plentiful. There are around 20 different burger combinations each with it’s own catchy name; such as the Bada Bing Burger, the Italian Stallion Burger and of course Graziella’s Burger (WBC is owned by the same team as Graziella’s and Blue in White Plains)
Not in the mood for a burger? There are plenty of apps and entrees to choose from as well. They have everything from your classic wings and ribs to hot dogs and steaks. I think I saw a salad on the menu, but who goes to a burger joint to order a salad?!? Just put some lettuce and tomato on your burger… that counts as your veggies for the day!
The décor and ambiance is well suited for a local burger joint in the vicinity of the Westchester Mall. It has a real lively feel going on with couches and televisions lining the walls. An enjoyable combination of an active (yet small) bar scene, friendly staff, 80’s hair band tunes (WWG’s favorite!) and quality beef makes this a great spot to a grab a bite while watching the game or to bring the entire family. The prices are certainly fair with the burgers ranging from about $10-16 and the apps under $10. All in all this is a fun and cool new eatery to check out the next time you’re in the area.
And don’t forget to support your local businesses by drinking the Captain Lawrence Brewery (located in Pleasantville) selection that they have on tap!
