Kenmore Square’s Uburger has a prime location near the T, Fenway, local colleges, shops, restaurants and more. Although it has a long list of signature beef burgers at this casual, fast-food restaurant, it also has an option to build your own burger starting with a veggie patty. Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles and grilled mushrooms or fried jalapenos are just a few of the many accompaniments to the burgers. Plus, there are six cheeses to choose from and 10 sauces like chipotle or horseradish to add to your creation.
