I'm shocked at the positive reviews of this place! Overpriced, overdone burgers. I almost walked out of this place as soon as I walked in, and I'm mad at myself for staying. It was nasty inside. Dirty. There were only three workers on a Friday...More

The worst burger for price I've ever had. It was $12 for a tiny burger and a mediocre amount of fries. Whoever writes a good review for this place is out of their mind, and has no real sense of what a good burger tastes...More

We stopped here for a quick dinner; it was not very busy and we needed a quick bite to eat. My husband and I both ordered burgers with no buns, with bacon, avocado and an over easy egg on top. After waiting about 15 minutes,...More

It is a joint in every sense but the burger was awesome and the sweet potato fries were great. Our waiter, Jermaine (like Jackson he says) was very good and entertaining.

If you want a burger cooked to your tastes that taste like steak then I would highly suggest this place. I have eaten here numerous times and each time I leave full and happy. The burgers are juicy and they use cuts of beef that...More

Saw this place on Diners, Drive In, and Dives and decided to check it out. In my opinion it was way over-priced. Two burgers a hot dog and drinks for over 35 bucks.

I usually get the Wellington burger which is amazing and I don't actually like hamburgers much. This time I got the chicken sandwich and it was also very good. We like the asparagus spears and the french fries are medium sized but always crunchy, I...More

We visited BGR based on several recommendations from family members. We felt it was a bit 'pricey;' however, we had two of the best burgers we've had in a long time. My wife had the traditional, while I went for The Wellington. We have already...More
