Iron Horse Tavern is arguably one of the more successful restaurant that has popped up in Morgantown over the past five years. So successful, in fact, they've opened a second location at the University Town Centre.

Iron Horse - university town centreAs we were all perusing the menu for our main meals, we saw the "Impossible Burger," which has been highly praised for being a nearly identical substitute to meat - but it's made with wheat protein, potato protein, and coconut oil.

Iron Horse - university town centreWe got one that we all tried, and honestly, I couldn't tell the difference. I was really trying to pinpoint some unique differences or get that "veggie burger" taste, but if you told me that was a regular burger, I would believe you. And Vicki & Steve felt the same. Look below, it even looks like a real burger!

Iron Horse - university town centreVicki and Steve ordered regular burgers for their main meals, so they compared and contrasted a bit. Vicki said the real burger is a bit thicker and the texture is a bit different. But not by much. Below is the real burger.
