At one point, the burger you’re eating was roaming the grassy knolls of California. Even if you didn’t need to picture your lunch in its previous life, the quality shows at Roam - everything is fantastic across the board. It’s an order-at-the-counter, take-a-number set-up, and (depending on whether you go for a burger or salad) a good choice for a quick healthy-ish or very-not-healthy dinner. Or split the difference and order the salad topped with three mini burgers. The tejano turkey burger is surprisingly excellent and if you don’t get the ‘fry-frecta’ - a sampling of zucchini, sweet potato, and regular fries - you’re doing it wrong.
