  • How spicy are your patties?

    Spicy tolerance is relative to the consumer.  We use scotch bonnet peppers in our patties. Sometimes depending on when the peppers were harvested, the peppers may be a little spicier than normal. Our spicy is spicy to the general population.  There are those few that think it is too spicy and some that tell us they add hot sauce to it to make it even more spicy.  We offer a mild version of our beef patties that are considerably less spicy than the spicy beef.

  • Halal or Kosher ingredients?

    Many of our ingredients are halal or kosher, however we are not certified.

  • Do you have coupons?

    We offer coupons periodically throughout the year at select retailers.

  • How to prevent unbaked patties from leaking when baking them?

    Baking the patties at a higher temperature for shorter amount of time will help prevent leaking. Make sure your oven is fully preheated to at least 400°F. You may even preheat your oven at a higher temperature and drop to the recommended temperature after the patties are put in the oven. The patties may leak if they are baked longer than the time stated on the instructions.  The filling creates steam when it is baking.  The longer it is baking the more steam needs to escape.  Eventually, the crimp may open and filling will leak.  If your patties started leaking before the dough was fully baked, you need to increase the temperature of your oven.  This may mean you need to bake at 425-450°F.  Be careful that you do not over bake the crust.  Times and temperatures may vary due to differences in oven performance.

  • What is the difference between frozen Unbaked and frozen Baked Patties?

    The difference between frozen Unbaked and frozen Baked Patties is the crust.

The Unbaked patties need to be fully baked and the Baked patties need to be reheated before consuming.
