The seasoned beef of the Stand Burger has a spicy flare to it (grilled onions, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce). Not incredibly bold but enough to raise a pair of eyebrows, the result is a patty with a taste similar to quality taco meat. The house sauce compliments the seasoning well, adding a little sweetness. The thick-cut applewood smoked bacon is a delicious extra.

But let's talk about Stand4's fries right quick. They bring them out early, early as in appetizer status early. Like, Oh hey, done with my fries, now it’s time for the burger to show up. Why would they do that? They should stop.
