Vegan dining in Sacramento: Burger Patch

Burger Patch in Sacramento, California, is an absolute gem, especially if you love fast vegan comfort food (and who doesn’t?!).

Traveling through, we were looking for a quick vegan meal, and Burger Patch exceeded our expectations. It was fast, and the food was amazing. Our only regret is being unable to try so many more of the delicious menu items.

We sampled a burger and a “chickn.” The burger we tried was the Patch Burger, comprising a seasoned vegan patty, melted cheddar, lettuce, tomato, grilled onion, and signature Patch sauce (Patch is known for its sauces, which are amazing).

The chickn we got was the “ultimate crispy,” consisting of two large, crispy Beyond Chicken nuggets, lettuce, tomato, and dill pickles on a toasted artisan bun with a choice of side sauce (we chose ranch).

And, of course, we got lots of fries.

Both sandwiches were delicious, appropriately junk-foody, with the lovely fresh ingredients to help it feel a bit healthier. The signature sauce was similar to 1000-Island and really good; the ranch was beautifully spiced, and both sauces were great for dipping the fries.

We also got a side of mac, which was delightfully cheesy with plenty of herbs. It was perfect as a side dish, but you can also get this lovely mac covered with bacon or a chopped-up burger or chickn.

There are so many items we didn’t get to try, from the milkshakes to the smashwraps to the salads. The founders’ mission is about more than just great food; it’s also about making the world a better place — the website tallies the number of animals saved (tens of thousands), the gallons of water saved (tens of millions), and the amount of money donated to the community (tens of thousands of dollars), which is fun to think about while you’re eating absolutely delicious vegan food.
