Tasty Burger

A flagship restaurant on Boylston Street wasn’t enough for the Red Sox’s official burger joint; Tasty Burger had to open inside Fenway Park, too. In fact, the Franklin Restaurant Group won’t be satisfied until its burgeoning chain of burger bars (with outposts as far away as Washington, DC) can compete with the In-N-Outs of the fast-casual game. And not just on scale, but with more progressive policies like environmentally sound packaging and responsibly sourced, non-GMO beef.
