Underbelly Burger is a fast-casual burger concept born out of a mission for sustainability. Part of a hospitality group with multiple restaurant concepts, Underbelly was created to utilize beef that wasn’t being served at Georgia James, the group’s steakhouse concept. So, how does a veggie burger fit into the picture?
“We try to be as accommodating as we can. A vegetarian should be able to sit down and enjoy a meal,” culinary director Scott Muns explains. When it came to a vegetarian option to pair with their beef burgers, a black bean burger patty was chosen. “We were focused on Texas, and it made sense.”
