I think it was pretty good for a meatless burger, but I prefer the real meat burgers. My daughter is vegetarian and she loves them. If they want more people to try meatless the price should be lower then real meat burgers.
I tried out the Beyond Meat burgers after a half price purchase from Safeway because 'why not?' Texture and flavour were good when grilled on our BBQ, not sure how that would hold up in other cooking situations though. I have to be gluten free (celiac disease) so I did like that they were a safe veg based alternative and without overdoing soy products. CONs: The regular price in our area of the country is HORRIBLE. I can get grass fed, blockchain beef here for cheaper. We'll be sticking with real meat unless the Beyond Burger is on for a significant discount.
I've been a vegetarian more than half of my life (started@10y/o).Take it from me, this IS NOT THE BEST VEGGIE BURGER. It's just not.I was disappointed when I tried this first at A&W, they've had a few plant-based burgers before.And all of them were better than the beyond meat burger.All of them.In general, I've been disappointed with the hype they're building, when they don't have the flavor to back it up.Honestly? If you're looking to try something new, that's plant based, there are a LOT more options out there, and I highly suggest you seek those out instead.I'm all for people trying to eat more plant-based, but I'm tired of people believing that means giving up flavors and textures you love.Try a mushroom burger, or a jalepeno one if you like a little heat. Even black bean burgers taste better(texture is lacking).Just trust me. I mean, try it if you would like, sure, but please don't let this be the only plant-based meat you try, because if I was disappointed, you likely will be.

I love trying new things and I had high hopes for this burger but I was left feeling disgusted by this. The texture is pretty much the same but the taste is so gross. If I had to stop eating normal burgers and start eating these I would starve to death because IRS just that bad. It's like tofu. If disgusting was a flavour this would be it.

I was skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised. The “meat” was juicy, highly flavourful and maintained its shape on the barbecue. Expensive but a good option instead of beef.
Pretty amazing burgers. Now I haven't had ground beef burgers in years and years but this is what I remembered them tasting like. Thick and juicy patties and tastes like the real thing. Seriously it's crazy. Wow. They have a higher fat content than my regular veggie burgers, so I wouldn't be eating these on the regular. BUT when I crave a heartier burger - I'm reaching for a Beyond Burger definitely. The taste and texture cannot be matched.
I gave these burgers to my family without telling them it was plant-based, and they raved for days that it was the juiciest, tastiest burger ever! When I finally told them the truth, they were shocked that it was plant-based, and happily agreed to eat it at least once a week as part of our regular rotation, but healthier!!
Sooooooo good! I am so happy and grateful for this product!!! I'm vegan now but grew up on meat and potatoes...a big part of that being burgers and fries...which was completely missing out of my life, until now! Do your tastebuds a favour and try these!

Great vegetarian substitute for meat!
I love the taste and meaty flavor of this burger. It cooks well on my BBQ and that is hard to find in meat substitute burgers. Usually they smear and break off. Also the smoky flavors and textures are very pleasant and very real!
