Experience One Loudoun: b One Loudoun

“Burgers, Beer, Bourbon” is the tagline of b One Loudoun, one of the community’s amazing restaurants that opened its doors just this past January. What began as the simple idea of eating a quality burger while enjoying your favorite beer or bourbon and good company, eventually turned into b Restaurants. After visiting farms high and low to find out the secret to a perfect burger, the first location opened in Connecticut in 2006, coincidentally in the same state where the hamburger originated.

Walking into b One Loudoun, you immediately get the feel of a restaurant inspired by bourbon itself. The comfortable atmosphere is a mix of modern and rustic, with warm woods, exposed brick, and red and auburn colored décor in addition to some amazing light fixtures.binterior

At b One Loudoun, a first glance of the menu caused a slight panic of “how can I choose?” With the help of recommendations from a few friends and our server’s knowledge of the popular dishes, we were able to finally make some decisions while chowing down on some pickles (made in house).bpickles

For a starter, we ordered the pretzels and house-made sausages served with honey mustard and jalapeno cheese sauce. It took only one bite of the sausage to recognize how fresh and well seasoned it was! The pretzels were perfectly baked as well and the jalapeno cheese dip was a great complement.

Next it was time to order our main dishes (which we had the hardest time doing). When we say this establishment has nailed the meaning of a quality burger, we mean they use beef that is ground in house 2-3 times daily, hand formed, American and source verified, and always fresh (never frozen). Additionally, other ingredients are sourced from local farms and markets, while the pork and chicken are also fresh and ground in-house.

If you’re not into burgers, we forgive you, but there are also a plethora of non-beef burger options to choose from and the menu is very friendly to those who are gluten-free. Many appetizers are gluten-free and options include a GF burger bun or having your burger served “in the grass” (atop iceberg lettuce).

Since we wanted to try a few different things, we decided on the Pretzel burger with fancy fries and the Burger Salad. The pretzel burger was cooked to perfection and oh so fresh! The pretzel bun was a fantastic addition and an option to add to any burger, although we have heard their regular buns are amazingly buttery and delicious too. The thing we loved most about this burger (and all of them on the menu) is that it was not overly decorated with toppings, which is ideal for tasting all of those delicious flavors from the fresh beef.

The burger salad is best described as a deconstructed burger: iceberg and romaine lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, cheddar, red onion, a ring of pickles, and oh yes, French fries (you can also get tater tots). This salad is tossed in their “special sauce” and topped with a cheeseburger and frizzled onions. The salad was so good, we have seriously considered eating our burgers in salad form from now on!

After our delicious meal, we headed over to check out the bar, which is fully stocked with pretty much any kind of bourbon you could ever want. There are so many on hand, they need the entire wall to house them all and a ladder to reach the top shelf. The horseshoe shaped bar allows for plenty of seating and there are also high-top tables for overflow. As seen below, there are 14 beer taps, and over 60 bottled and canned beers, with many local favorites available!
