Good Health Burger - E 53rd

Has anyone eaten at Good Health Burger on E53rd? My boyfriend and I ordered take-out from there for a second time last night and we’re hooked.

It’s primarily a delivery/take-out spot. We stumbled upon it one night while looking for “something healthy, quick & cheap” for dinner in the neighborhood. The first time, I thought maybe this is a fluke, I’m starving, so of course I think this is tasty. But no, it’s official, this place is a new favorite take-out spot.

I had the Good Health Burger Deluxe both times. I’m not a vegetarian but I like a veggie burger now and then. This was hands down the best veggie burger I’ve ever had. Good texture & consistency, loaded with grilled peppers, onions, and mushrooms, and guac, vegan sour cream, and BBQ sauce on top. Sounds like an odd combo but the BBQ sauce is awesome! I don’t like mayo so I passed on the vegan mayo. Very filling and satisfying.

My meat-eating boyfriend had a grilled chicken sandwich with the vegan mayo the first visit, and the chili lime chicken sandwich last night. He loved both! Also filing & satisfying. Most burgers are under $8, which is a bargain for the neighborhood.

We also had a vegetable-lentil soup. Yum! I hate when soup is salty rather than flavorful, but this was perfectly spiced.

Next time I want to try the Black Bean (fake) Bacon burger, and some of the awesome-looking vegan desserts.

This place can’t possibly be “healthy”. It tastes too good. I tried to find nutrition facts online, but no luck. Maybe next time I’m in there, I’ll ask… before I start eating there every day (a la Seinfeld frozen yogurt episode). Even if it's not healthy, it's a great quick dinner option.
