FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do any of your menu items contain meat, fish, dairy, eggs or honey? No. Zonk Burger is completely vegan (or plant-based).
What kind of burger patties do you use? Both burger patties currently on the menu are made in house from original recipes using different combinations of beans, grains, vegetables, seasoning and, in the Zonk Burger, nuts. We do not serve highly-processed meat substitutes such as Impossible Burger, Beyond Meat or Gardein (we appreciate these too; we just want to offer something you can't get elsewhere).
Are items on your menu okay for people sensitive to gluten? Both of our burger patties are gluten-free and can be completely gluten-free with an appropriate bun substitution. That said, there is a lot of gluten in our kitchen (buns, breading, seitan), and there's a chance anything you consume could come in contact with gluten. Also, we only have one fryer, and our fries are cooked in the same oil as our breaded tofu sandwich, which contains gluten. Both salads can be gluten free; the House Salad is already, and the Caesar is without croutons (try subbing chickpeas).
Do any menu items use nuts? There are cashews in the Zonk Burger patty.
Do any items contain soy? Yes: the Southern Fried Tofu, Tofu Nuggets and Seitan Wings (silken tofu). We also had to switch bun suppliers (to Signature Baking Co.), and they use soy as an ingredient; our gluten-free bun option (Schär) has soy too.
What about other allergies? Please make any other allergies known to the cashier, who can answer your specific questions or confirm with the kitchen. We are sympathetic to people who suffer from allergies, but we still use conventional (organic or higher-quality when we can, but conventional never-the-less) ingredients and cooking methods. We also have space limitations due to our tiny kitchen. We will, however, try to make any reasonable accommodation, just make sure you are clear about your concerns when ordering.
Can I get your food delivered? We do not currently offer any delivery options, either in house or through third parties. We learned Favor offers a custom delivery runner option. We are still exploring this option.
Catering requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis (contact us here).
Why can’t I leave a tip? Employees’ wages at Zonk Burger start at $15.00/hour. The cost of labor is reflected in the price of our food. We believe this is the most sustainable and fair arrangement. All customers should receive the same service without expectation of tips, and employees should have a predictable paycheck, without dips caused by slow days, bad weather or anything else beyond their control.
Does it come with fries? Every item on the menu is individually priced, except where noted. We serve organic russet potatoes that are cut in house and fried twice. Prior to our request, our major local food distributor did not carry fresh, organic russets, and as far as we know (last communicated April 2022), we are still the only restaurant they service that uses them. Due to the supply circumstances and labor involved, fries are priced accordingly.
Do you have (vegan) cheese? We don’t have conventional cheese slices because we are trying to limit using store bought items, making most of the menu from scratch, in house. We make a potato-based queso we can add to your burger if you want.
