You Herd Right

Why do they call it fast food? Because most of it tastes so incredibly bad, fasting is precisely what it inspires.

But lo and behold, the exception has arrived — and big snaps to Quincy natives Nick Kesaris and Spiro Kouvlis for pulling it off. They’ve just opened UBurger, Boston’s long-overdue answer to West Coast cult fave In-n-Out.

Okay, health food it’s not. But carnivores all over town will rejoice in their made-to-order, USDA-approved, freshly ground (yes, in-house) burgers. Specialty numbers include quarter-pound, two-fisted affairs like the Boom Burger, dripping with chipotle sauce, cheddar, and fried jalapenos.

There are also hand-cut fries, all-beef Kayem hot dogs, and specialty drinks — none of which are frozen (except the extra-thick frappes, of course) or subjected to heat lamp or microwave hell before hitting your plate.

So is it still fast food? Sure, technically.

Meaning get there. Fast.

UBurger, 636 Beacon Street, Kenmore Square (617-536-0448).
