Big Orange

Big Orange

Little Rock, Arkansas 72205



On my most recent visit to Little Rock, my friend took me to the Big Orange, which is known primarily for their burgers, salads, and milkshakes.  


The restaurant has a bit of a trendy vibe about it.  They have a full bar and a list of draught beers.  


My friend ordered my favorite salad, which is a tomato caprese.  It is mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and balsamic.  This one looked awesome.  It used yellow tomatoes rather than the traditional red.   


The restaurant can make any burger using beef, ground turkey, or veggie.  I went with the beef burger.  I had the Maytag Blue, which was topped with blue cheese and pepper jelly along with lettuce, onion, and tomato.  I always love the beef and blue cheese combination; the pepper jelly added a nice extra touch.  You can order your burgers to whatever temperature that you want.  The default is medium well.  I forgot to specify.  I would have preferred a medium rare.  However, that was my fault.  It was a great burger with full of flavor.  


I also had the order of house fries.  They were perfectly cooked.  They were crispy with just the right amount of potato.  They came with a homemade sauce.  I'm not sure what it is; I know it was a mayonnaise based sauce.  

I would definitely eat here again.  It was an awesome burger.  The prices are close to $9, which is fairly average for a gourmet burger.
