In November 2009, the owners of The Melting Pot Restaurants had a vision to create a modern fast casual burger restaurant that offered a unique variety of high-quality food in a hip environment with lasting appetite appeal to people of all ages. 

After researching and taste testing hundreds of burgers, the team founded Burger 21 and went to work creating the restaurant’s menu, decor and culture.The first Burger 21 location opened in the Westchase area of Tampa, Fla., in November 2010 bringing people of all ages together to enjoy innovative and delicious recipes for gourmet burgers, fries, salads, shakes and more in a modern and fun environment.

From the start, it was typical to see tables filled with families of three generations engaged in conversation over Burger 21’s unique burger creations such as The Ahi Tuna, Tex-Mex Haystack and The Skinny turkey burger and signature shakes like Bananas Foster and Key Lime Pie.

Now in 2017, Burger 21 wants to know “What’s Your Number”?

When was the last time someone asked for your number? Whether it was today, yesterday or yester-year, Burger 21, the award winning fast casual franchise with one of the most diverse menus in the country, wants your number each time you visit.

Don’t worry, this isn’t a typical pick up line for your phone number, but guest’s burger numbers.

Following a recent announcement of the brand’s refreshed menu with new burger and shake options, Burger 21 is inviting guests to come explore their new menu, encouraging them to find their number.

While the menu doesn’t follow numerical order, Burger 21 is taking a nontraditional approach with each of the brand’s 21 unique burger options having been designated a specific number that reflects the flavor, tradition or fun of that menu item. Notice, number five is the “Cinco Burger.”

There is a method to the menu numbers. Guests who are a 1-10 most enjoy one of the brand’s Certified Angus Beef burgers while guests who are a 11-20 opt for a non-beef burger as their favorite. Those who identify as a 21 enjoy the chef inspired flavors of the ever changing current featured flavor of Burger 21. You can see the numerical 21 lineup here:

“Half & Half Fries feature Sweet Potato Fries and traditional French Fries and go great with the Sauce Bar that has 10 flavors to choose from. Five sauces at the sauce bar are made in house. The flavors range from regular ketchup & mustard to spicy Ragin' Cajun to sweet Toasted Marshmallow...which is awesome with sweet potato fries.

The Patty Melt is signified as a #3 on the menu, and is made with Angus beef and grilled onions, Swiss cheese and a sweet & tangy remoulade sauce between Texas toast.

#18 on the menu is a Monterey Chicken Burger with grilled chicken topped with salsa, avocado, bacon, jalapenos, sun-dried tomato aioli, Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce, & tomato on a brioche bun. 

#12 is The Ahi Tuna Burger made with sushi grade ahi tuna that is panko crusted, then lightly fried and topped with Sriracha aioli, caramel soy, avocado, pickled cucumbers, lettuce & tomato and is served on a brioche bun. 

#7 is the tasty Tex-Mex Haystack Burger. This is an Angus beef burger topped with bacon, Gouda cheese, guacamole, onion strings, chipotle-jalapeno, lettuce & tomato on a brioche bun.

Cafe Bustelo is one of my favorite coffee brands for the flavor and price point, and it’s like the official coffee of Miami, my second home, so you better believe the Espresso Signature Shake made with Cafe Bustelo at Burger 21 is a home run in my book.

For something sweet and salty the Salted Caramel Pretzel Signature Shake is the perfect ending to your adventure through all of the great burgers and sandwiches at Burger 21.

Burger 21 at the Mall at Millenia is open Monday to Thursday from 11:00am until 9:30pm and Friday and Saturday from 11:00am to 10:00pm with Sunday hours starting at 11am and closing at 9pm. Stop by sometime soon and find out what your Number is!

Melting Pot : Dip into Summer

7549 W Sand Lake Rd.
Orlando, FL 32819
(407) 903-1100

Some of my first childhood dining memories began at the The Melting Pot. The first Melting Pot opened in April 1975 in Maitland, Florida and served only three items on its menu. With permission from the original owners, Mark, Mike and Bob Johnston opened The Melting Pot of Tallahassee in 1979. As the restaurant expanded its franchise, the menu grew larger. In 1985, the Johnston brothers purchased all rights to the Melting Pot brand.

Sadly, on June 1, 2008, the original location in Maitland closed, but there were already enough additional Melting Pot locations to replace the original one. My family has always been very fond of fondue, and that is why I have always been a big fan of The Melting Pot.

I mean who can refuse a relaxing four course experience that begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side with artisan bread and vegetables for dipping and a fresh salad while your entree pot heats up followed by a decadent chocolate fondue as the finale?

If you love The Melting Pot as much as I do, you may not think things could get any better, but I must warn you, the all new "Dip Into Summer" special is rather awesome. I always order my fondue with the oil for it a southern thing if you will, but the Old Bay seasoned broth for boiling with this limited time offer has me rethinking my position.

In addition to a ridiculously good BBQ brisket cheddar fondue, the all new “Dip Into Summer” special features pacific white shrimp, scallops, lobster & shrimp ravioli, andouille sausage and succulent crab claws.

Instead of oil for frying, this special is prepared with an Old Bay seasoned cooking broth that features fresh corn on the cob, red potatoes and andouille sausage.

The BBQ Brisket Cheddar fondue was outstanding. It features chunks of savory smoked barbecue brisket, medium sharp cheddar and Emmenthaler Swiss cheeses with fresh tomatoes and scallions. The usual dipping items of various breads, green apples and a vegetable assortment are included with this as well.

I'm not usually a fan of wedge salads, but this was quite tasty. A crisp iceberg wedge is served with sliced Roma tomatoes, Gorgonzola cheese, hardwood smoked bacon and peppercorn ranch dressing. 

The Summertime Sipper is a perfect drink for this time of year. One sip and you will feel like you are at the beach relaxing. This cocktail contains fresh watermelon and cucumber with Malibu rum and fresh lime juice to create a refreshing cocktail you’ll want to sip all summer long.

For all the beer drinkers out there, the Melting Pot has you covered as well. This refreshing beer flight from Sam Adams Summer Ale and Lemonade, features Black Cherry Blush, Ruby Red Crush & Lively Lemon flavors in 7oz servings. Each flavor also available in full 12oz size.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Banana Split Chocolate Fondue. This dessert combines all the flavors of a classic banana split into a decadent milk chocolate fondue with cherries on top.

The summer menu is available now through July 31st and also includes options to add a lobster tail and 4 more crab claws for an additional charge.

I really enjoyed this dining experience and taking a detour from my normal fondue selections. If you love summertime, seafood, cool cocktails and great fondue, then head to your nearest Melting Pot before this special ends.
