Why wait until after the trip to get that burger you're craving? "This actually tastes like it came off the grill," says one tester. The meat is a little crumbly but not dry; wrap it in a tortilla (BYO) with ketchup, mayo, mustard and relish (included in separate packets, so yes, you can have it your way). Testers also really liked this company's deli-style Roast Beef Wrap.

frequently asked questions
We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking™" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy™. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag™ preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy™ folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.
Keto friendly and oh so tasty. Loved "the works" and the condiment packets!
This is fantastic food. Very surprised at all of the flavor. I am stoked to take this in my pack.
Easy prep and the condiments make it better. I like my food spicy hot but these burgers would have been better with less pepper. It was a bit overpowering on the pepper flavor.
Ok, so this was my first time trying any dehydrated meals other then my own. I have to say, the burger works was really really good. It hit the spot and was simple to make and used very minimal water, which i liked. It was a bit salty yes. If i was banging out the miles and sweating a lot, then i wouldn't mind. But for short distance hiking, this is a concern as i dont need all the sodium. Why not create a few low sodium meals? Im sure they would sell just as quick, if not quicker. Besides that, it tastes great and yes i would eat it again, just cautiously.
The All-American Works Burger really hit the spot after a long day of hiking. I was skeptical about a burger with your BYO tortilla, but it really was good. Of all the meals I purchased, this one was the best.
This is my son and eyes all time favorite meal while backpacking! Super easy to make. Cannot describe the flavors in enough words. It's a little early like eating a Burger off of the grill. We just bought more for an upcoming section hike. And it's very tempting to not eat it between now and then.
These are my fav dinner meal, very filling with tortilla. Makes 3 good size burger tortillas.
Pleasantly surprised at how much burger flavor this had. Iâ€™m from the Deep South and good food makes everything better, definitely hit the spot after a long day. Wish it wouldâ€™ve came with two or more of each of the condiments but I will be sure to pack more next time. Kids even made me share mine
