Hamburgers are usually a feature of fast food restaurants. But at Prime Burgers in Albertson, the burgers have a new stage. This isn't your typical ground beef sandwich found at a barbecue. This is a gourmet piece of art placed in front of each customer. Using three different types of meat, chef Justin Gaines, makes sure everything in his kitchen is made from scratch, "We worked with the butcher for a month and a half to make up this burger blend. We literally agreed probably two weeks before we opened the doors...it took us that long."
Host Meredith Daniels had to check out this burger joint for herself. In the process, she learns how the famous namesake sandwich, Prime Burger, comes to life in the kitchen.
