Best Veggie Burger

The Righteous Room

1051 Ponce de Leon Ave.

The trouble with most veggie burgers is that they aspire to be ersatz hamburgers, simulating grilled ground beef with mysterious non-meats. Jane's Homemade Veggie Burger at the Righteous Room wisely doesn't try to beat a Big Mac at its own game. Wrapped in warm Nan bread, its "patty of veggies and grains quickly crumbles into chewy, kicky morsels -- you could call the sandwich a "Veggie Gyro with only a small stretch of the imagination. It may not kill a carnivore's craving for a real hamburger, but with its accompanying lettuce, tomato and onion, it's still an impressive meat-free substitute.
