It is easy for someone to become hungry when all this talk about food is happening. The Underground Kingz legend Bun B, whose real name is Bernard James Freeman, has an upcoming restaurant that makes mouthwatering burgers called Trill Burgers.
In New York City’s Times Square, on Friday, Jul 29, the “International Players Anthem” rapper and his burger team were named the winners of the Good Morning America “United States of Burgers” competition. The judges recognized his tasty patties as the best burger in America. To add to the impact of his achievement, the rapper posed with GMA host Michael Strahan. Bun B held a trophy in one hand and a $10,000 cash prize from the morning show in the other.
“We did it, baby, Trill Burgers!” the Houston native said while posing for pictures with his team. “It feels amazing, man; God is good. My team is amazing. You’re going to get the best burger in America soon.”

What Ingredients Does Bun B Use?
During the competition, Trill Burgers presented their OG Trill Burger. Served between two halves of Martin’s potato roll buns, this burger consists of a double patty made from 44 Farms beef, American cheese. On top, there are caramelized onions, pickles, and a special “Trill Sauce.”
If someone loses in a competition, it may discourage them, but it may also be seen as a stepping stone to more of the same in the future. Despite receiving three out of five votes from the judges, the Houston rapper and Trill Burgers chef Mike Pham still won this competition.
Judges for the competition included TV personality Gina Neely, ABC anchor Sam Champion, former NBA player Jalen Rose, WWE wrestler Titus O’Neil, and former NFL running back Tiki Barber.
The Underground Kingz Rapper Offers James Harden A Burger
Trill Burgers are famous among everyday people and have increased their popularity through many celebrities, including Snoop Dogg and Philadelphia 76ers player James Harden.
Bun B recently made a trip to Rolling Loud Miami to promote his new creation from July 22-24. After offering one of his burgers to James Harden, he received an A+ review for the burger.
The Underground Kingz rapper intended to record James eating the burger. When he pulled it out, Harden was down to one bite. Harden’s immediate consumption of the burger proves that he would eat another one if offered again.
“That sh*t ain’t got nothing but a bite left,” Bun B said. “Hey Bun, you got something special big dog, ” Harden said. “That sh*t fire, FIRE!”

When And Where Can You Find ‘Trill Burgers’ Food?
As the hustle continues, we can’t get enough of it! In August of last year, the Underground Kingz rapper launched Trill Burgers in Houston, Texas. He hopes to increase the visibility of his brand at LL Cool J’s Rock The Bells Music Festival in New York City on Aug 6. During his appearance, he also intends to host the first Hip-Hop food court with his Trill Mealz Food Court.
Trill Burgers has been operating on the road and has not yet opened an official restaurant. However, this is an excellent opportunity to snag some delicious food to enjoy at the festival on Aug 6. Alternatively, if you cannot attend, you can purchase food at Bored & Hungry, 2405 E 7th St Long Beach.
The moment we have been waiting for has finally come. As per a release, the restaurant expects to open a permanent location later in the year.
