BurgerIM, an Israeli burger chain that translates to “many burgers” from Hebrew, will be opening soon in Wheaton Mall. The first BurgerIM opened in 2011 and the burger chain has already expanded to over 160 stores worldwide in just over 5 years.
They sell mini-burgers (not sliders) using 2.8 ounce patties that are larger than a slider sized patty. Their selling point is variety, and there’s plenty of it. They offer 11 different types of patties, including beef, dry aged beef, Wagyu beef, merguez, Turkey, lamb, chicken, salmon, veggie, Spanish beef, and falafel.
Their disc shaped fries are more like slices of potatoes, but they also provide the option to get sweet potato fries (in the traditional shape), onion rings, or home fries (cubes potatoes tossed in chili sauce and topped with sesame seeds).
Combo options include the uno (one burger), duo (two burgers), trio (three burgers), and Party Box (16 burgers!). In addition to burgers, BurgerIM will offer a variety of sandwiches and salads.
Wheaton Mall told me they don’t have an exact date, but that they hope it’ll open in a few months.
