I’m sad to say that Morgan’s Burger Bistro no longer operates.
Everyone raves about Morgan’s Burger Bistro in Downtown Sanford. No doubt, the place makes a good burger. They bill it as the best in town. The town is Sanford, though, but that’s not an extraordinary claim.
Morgan’s Burger Bistro is Very Basic
Morgan’s is a tiny restaurant with roughly half a dozen tables and (apparently) no air conditioning. The tables & chairs are fundamental. You don’t go to Morgan’s for comfort.
You go there for the delicious burgers. Are they the best in town? For me, so far, I’d have to say yes.
Are they the best burgers I’ve ever had? No, but pretty close. Morgan’s provides a burger reminiscent of your backyard grill flavor, but except being cooked perfectly to order.
It didn’t make my list of Orlando’s Best Restaurants, but I’d still go back.
The fries are outstanding and delicious, too. I think the fries are closer to perfection than the burgers. I tried the onion rings once. They were OK, but nothing special. Go with the fries.
Plain Burgers and That’s a Good Thing
Other than cheese & a bun, your burger comes out rather plain. There’s a condiment stand in the front of the restaurant where you can add your toppings, and there are many choices. I have somewhat mixed feelings about this idea.
On one hand, you get to add what you want. On the other hand, you have no idea what snot-nosed, diseased person was at that condiment station before you. You may have reservations if you have phobias about germ control at open stations like this.
Friendly Staff and Great Value
That’s not to say that the restaurant isn’t kept clean. I’ve never noticed any filth or lack of attention to cleaning up in the place. The people who work there are pretty friendly. The prices are cheap compared to going to a higher-end restaurant and getting a comparable burger.
Morgan’s provides excellent value. There’s also more to the menu than burgers, but come on. It’s Morgan’s Burger Bistro. You go for the burger.
I gave it three stars because the place is OK. It’s not a five-star dining experience with a comfortable environment—my concerns about how the condiments are open for anyone to touch also cut back a bit. Morgan’s offers a pretty good product at a very reasonable price, but let’s not over-hype the place.Morgan’s Burger Bistro
