BCK has gone through a few changes since it first opened in the Heights in 2018. While its original menu offered nostalgic staples, the focus of the restaurant shifted to burgers last year.
I visited BCK once before the menu shift and had not gone back. The food was OK, but there was nothing calling me back. After learning about the refocusing to burgers, I was interested in trying BCK again and seeing if it had found its niche.
While the menu still has other items, like wings and steak and chicken, its center stage is its five different burgers. I ordered the Avocado Eatin’ Californian, which comes with two beef patties, cheddar jack, sprouts, crispy onion, tomato, avocado and creamy ranch.
The burger also comes with a side of crinkle cut or sweet potato fries. I chose the former.
Despite the lack of sprouts, only one thin slice of tomato and it not having as much creamy ranch as I would have wanted, I found myself enjoying the burger. I’d picked it up easily by way of curbside service, so I didn’t notice the measly ingredients until after I was home.
There was plenty of avocado and crispy onion. The crispy onion is an addition I especially loved because their crunch provided an extra layer to the burger.
The patties were the star, which is why I still liked the burger despite not having as much as on it as I thought it would. They were well done, seasoned and had a rich flavor.
The crinkle-cut fries were lightly seasoned, but pretty basic.
I also sampled two of the wings, one coated in lemon pepper sauce and the other in mild. The wing order came with 12 wings. The lemon one was dryer but the lemon really popped. The mild was tangy with a little zing. The skin on the mild was also rubbery in texture. I preferred the lemon pepper because I liked citrus blending into the chicken.
BCK is also doing family packs for the burgers and wings. Four burgers with fries are $40, which would save you around $5 compared to ordering them separately. The family pack for the wings comes with 36 wings for $40.
I found that BCK changed for the better, and I look forward to trying another burger on its menu.
