Custom burgers were absolutely delicious, as were the jalapeño fries. Milkshake was thick and hit the spot. Service was a bit slow, but the place was packed. Very clean and love the name and logo. Will definitely stop again.

The service was slow, the chips sucked, the shake was WAY too rich. The burgers and fries were phenomenal though. Verdict: Order to go

Some friends wanted to take us out for a burger at this place. We just loved it! Burgers are amazing, made to order, the adult milkshakes are sinful, and the service was great. The place was also exceptionally clean. We loved it!

The 4 of us went for dinner and were seated promptly. The service was just ok, it took a while to receive our order. The food was prepared well. Just disappointed with the service.

The restaurant is rather dimly lit inside. And after eating there many times......I finally got it..... Burgatory is a take on purgatory. All that aside the food is heavenly. Appetizers we have tried include the wings usually plain with sauce on the side, tacos, really like the short ribs inside, sauce and the shell, just the right tang and flavor,... More

Service was good,helpful and prompt. Created my own burger on a brioche bun with gorgonzola cheese, bacon,mayo and a sauce with a kick. Onion rings were humongous! Shakes were phenomenal. All good.

I am assuming the idea of this place is to be an uppity gourmet burger joint, and it was cool, but that's it. The burger was just ok, nothing fancy or great, just ok. Definitely not worth the $15 spent. If you are looking for a great burger at a half decent price go to Five Guys. The burger at... More

Stopped in for lunch before the Steeler game. Quickly seated and waited on. Waitress explained all the options and we decided to create our own burgers. I thought the food arrived in a timely manner considering the pre-game rush. The burgers were great (traditional & Bison) and the prices were fair considering the location. We will be back 👌

The atmosphere was nice and that's about were it ends for me. We all ordered different types of burgers and sides. The burgers were average not great. The potato chips that were "fresh" were in fact stale and a bit soggy. The onion straws were chewy and had very little flavor. The Napa Coleslaw was flavorless and soggy, really couldn't... More

If you are in Pittsburgh you have to visit Burgatory and try their s'mores shake. I always get some to go. Large serving and then left over served in very cool stainless steel glasses Burgers are ok
