UPDATE: I’ve been told that Stumpy Burger has closed…Not sure if that is true, so I’ll be going by to check sometime this week. If it is true, it’s a sad day in the Utah Burger World, because Stumpy made amazing burgers :'(
So, my wife and I love to go for walks down Provo center street, looking at shops, trying new eateries. A week or so ago, my wife and I spotted a new place in downtown Provo, called Stumpy Burger. I’ll admit, with delicious burgers right around the corner at Sammy’s, I was skeptical about trying another burger place so close, but we decided to give it a go.
And glad I am that we did! Stumpy Burger makes the very best hamburgers I have ever had, without question. They season their patties with secret ingredients (Johnny’s Seasoning Salt ) that adds an incredible burst of flavor to an old tried and true. The quality of the beef is high, and I would suspect ground steak.
The burger was served with melty cheese, crunchy pickles and delicious sauteed onions on a lightly toasted bun. Lettuce and tomatoes are not an option, since the owner feels that they detract from the flavor and texture of the burger. Every single bite was a taste of heaven.
On top of the to die for burgers, the fries were also delicious, and served with a housemade fry sauce that had horseradish and quite a kick
I can say without question that I will be coming back regularly for more of these. My only complaint was with the lack of bacon as an option, though with the flavorful seasoning in the patties, I can survive without my bacon.
