Robert Joice and David Makuen are the bedrock of BuiltBurger.
BuiltBurger co-founder David Makuen's not a bit shy about declaring BB's patties the finest on the planet. Holy cow! Repeat after us in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger accent: World Burger Domination!

That's because he and his burger-creating guru Robert Joice shatter the core beliefs about what a burger is. It's way more than a ground-beef sandwich. It's the finest ground meat mixed with all sorts of exotic ingredients and seasonings. The flavor is in the meat, not the toppings. Just get a load of this wicked delish recipe that creeps up just to the border of esoteric, but stays as true as a cold frosty microbrew you definitely need to pour to sip alongside the ultimate mushroom burger.
