O!Burger: Organic fast food burgers

Has the organic food trend finally spawned a fast food restaurant?

The menu at O!Burger in Los Angeles fits the bill. The all-organic menu offers burgers, shakes, and fries.

Sure, the "classic O!burger" is $7.99 (the combo is $10.99), but it's 100% organic... including the grass fed beef.

There's also the O!turkey sandwich (made with free range turkey) and the O!veggie made with spinach and corn.

And reports indicate they taste good, too:
"The "classic" O! burger tasted as good as the best hamburgers I ever ate."

More from O!Burger's web:
We aspire to make a delicious burger that leaves you satisfied without feeling stuffed.

We are a completely organic burger house. This includes the buns, the sauce, vegetables, meat, ketchup, mustard, fries and salad dressing. If it’s edible, it’s organic.

Organic food is free of pesticide, chemical fertilizer, insecticide, food coloring, genetic modification, cloning, antibiotics, steroids, hormones, and other unknown elements. The land on which the vegetables and fruit are grown, and the pasture on which the cattle graze, have been cleaned for a minimum of 3 years.

Interesting that the first fast food organic joint would be for burgers, since I imagine that red meat is the type of food organic foodies are least interested in. Or maybe it's a good strategy for getting normal fast food eaters to cross over?
