Bossed For You: The Lazy Boss™ and The Lazy Bowl™
What’s in a burger? Burgers have a rich history and culture in the American landscape. It’s a staple food. Some enjoy the quick fast food burgers while others like a big dine-in style one. At Burger Boss, we have a wide variety of burgers where you decide how it is made. If you are not feeling a traditional style burger we also have The Lazy Boss™ and The Lazy Bowl™. Initially, we strongly held the concept that you get to boss your burger. You make the choices on what does and does not go on your burger. However, certain individuals may not be in the mood to make choices and just want a ready-made burger. For many years, customers started requesting an option of a burger that was “bossed for you.” Basically, a choice where the choice for the various toppings, sauces, etc. were already set. Due to the high demand, we decided to bring it back! The current “bossed for you” delicacy contains grass-fed beef, green leaf lettuce, crispy pickles, fresh onion, vine ripe tomatoes, and thousand island dressing.

The Lazy Boss™
The Lazy Boss™ is a great option if your burger cravings have kicked in! If you are feeling a standard burger where all the guesswork is taken out, then The Lazy Boss™ is the best choice for you. The Lazy Boss™ starts with what any burger needs – the buns. You can choose from the following: white kaiser, wheat grain or gluten-free. The patty is our signature grass-fed beef. The cheese is yellow American, a classic you can never go wrong with. For The Lazy Boss™ we chose the 1,000 island dressing with its unique taste. The veggie toppings are simple yet effective for the holistic taste of the burger. We top it off with green leaf lettuce, fresh onion, and vine ripe tomatoes. All this for $8.50
We offer a lot more than just burgers. We also offer delicious bowls if you are in the mood to change things up. Don’t worry, we have you covered. Are you very health conscious and follow a very strict diet regimen? Are the majority of your meals low carb? You might have had a great workout in the morning, and want to cut down on the carbs. In that case, The Lazy Bowl™ is the way to go. The Lazy Bowl™ is similar to The Lazy Boss™, but you don’t get bun. Instead, you lay the main items on a bed of lettuce or spinach. You still get the protein – the grass-fed beef patty. You also get the slice of American yellow. No bowl is complete without veggies, right? The bowl comes with green leaf lettuce, fresh onion, and vine ripe tomatoes. To finalize The Lazy Bowl™, you need a dressing! We stick with the delicious 1000 island. The price of The Lazy Bowl™ is the same as the price for The Lazy Boss™, $8.50.
