The second time I ordered Southwestern burger, the patty fell apart and greasy and taste yuck and i had milkshake... More

I got the Clemson with a lettuce wrap. The Pattie was hand formed and the bacon crispy. You can also get sweet potato fries instead of regular fries. Amazing!!!

My wife and I had lunch at the Burger Joint a couple weeks ago. The restaurant was featured in an article in the Washington Post which gave it a very good review. We both ordered hamburgers and one order of a combination French fries/onion rings which we shared. In addition, my wife had a milk shake. The food was good.... More

Our family LOVES BGR Joint - by far our #1. The burgers are tasty and the fries outstanding. The menu is simple and burgers can be customized to fit anyone's tastes. However - they do not serve gluten free buns. On our last visit, my wife and I brought our own gluten free buns and transferred the burger and fixings... More

I stumbled across this casual restaurant and it was like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Ordered a cheeseburger with no bread because I have to eat gluten-free. Staff offered either a gluten-free roll or a lettuce wrap like it was no big deal; they wanted to prepare something I would truly enjoy. Fountain drinks... More

This place has delicious burgers! The atmosphere is great, as well. I really enjoyed the option of having vegetables instead of fries. Highly recommend!

Lots of choices for burgers and sandwiches. They now have GF buns, which is great, but they should toast or grill them. They aim to please, so have it your way. Order at counter, pick up when ready and eat. Bus your own table.

I like this place.....you order your type of bun, burger(and how it's cooked), and toppings. Then take your little buzzer to your table until it starts vibrating, then collect your food. very efficient and very tasty. Some of the staff could do with some customer service training. I went here twice, the first time the staff were nice and friendly,... More

Burgers are delicious! Fries are fresh and come in a big portion. Service is good and quick. Lots of tables and TV was showing a football game. Great quick break from the day.
