It’s pronounced “batch,” people. Let’s all remember that. Fortunately, the folks at Burger Bach are gracious and no matter how you say the name, will still bring you burgers made with grass-fed beef from New Zealand and homemade ketchup. Back when Carytown Burgers & Fries opened in 2001, most restaurants in town didn’t have high-end, grass-fed burgers on their menus. This spot turned out cooked-to-order, house-ground and hand-formed Angus beef patties from the get-go that won its customers’ loyalty. “And our building’s got a specific, classic Richmond charm,” administrative operations manager Jordan Leonard says of the oldest building on Carytown’s strip. “If there’s one thing Richmond loves, it’s Richmond. They love claiming it.”
