Boston, Massachusetts – October 4, 2012 –The Boston Burger Company, a Boston area not-so-secret gem, will be featured this Monday on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” Guy Fieri knows a great burger when he sees one and the guys of Boston Burger Company know how to deliver. Specialty burgers are what it’s all about at Boston Burger Company; watch Guy Fieri roll into Bean-town for Boston Burger’s “Mac Attack.” Not for the faint of heart, the Mac Attack is an eight ounce certified Angus burger, buried under homemade four cheese macaroni and cheese and topped with sizzling bacon.
Food Network host, Guy Fieri, brought the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” crew to this Boston area favorite for filming last May, selected from a field of over fifty other hot spots in Boston, to get down and dirty with this high octane delicacy. Guy had his work cut out for him deciding which heavy hitter to go with out of the 28 one of a kind burger creations. While filming, it was apparent to those on set that Fieri would have also liked to try the “Hot Mess” since “he couldn’t stop chowing down on our homemade potato chips dipped in our “Hot Mess” mix.” confessed Boston Burger Company co-owner, Chuck Sillari.
In business for only three years, Boston Burger Company has hit the scene big and people are talking. As guests on the Rachael Ray Show, their burger the “Hot Mess” swept Ray’s “Battle of the Best Burger” competition, they won Boston Magazine’s 2012 “Battle of the Burger,” were featured 3 times on the Phantom Gourmet, highlighted on Boston’s Chronicle Magazine and have already cooked against great talents like Bobby Flay, Michael Schlow, Michael Symon, Masaharu Morimoto and Spike Mendelsohn. Being on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” was a dream realized for Boston Burger Company owners, Paul Malvone, Sebastian Fricia and Chuck Sillari.
“When the red Camaro pulled up in front of the restaurant at our Davis Square location in Somerville, people realized what was going on and it became a mob scene,” Sillari recounts the scene on the street. “Everyone had a great time and Guy Fieri was really good about letting people take photos and get their Triple D fill.” After all the hoopla died down and Fieri left the store, Paul Malvone reflected on the experience and said, “Now we know that people really love our food and we’ve accomplished something.
Recently, Boston Burger Company launched the Boston Burger Company Salsa Project which is a result of their “Inferno Burger” and “Bahama Mama” Burger.
