The Burger Joint probably makes the best burgers in Alexandria. Go for a basic burger with your favorite toppings, a side of fresh french fries (regular or sweet potato) and a beer. It just doesn’t get better. Basic surroundings but you’re there for the food.

Small burger joint with fun 80's vibe with pictures and music. Even a picture of Tom Petty on the wall! I was there in Oct and had their Octoberfest Burger had bratwurst and kraut!! It was wonderful. Wish I was closer to try more.

This place has great food and fast service. Great for a quick stop and prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend the Ahi Tuna Wasabi Burger. It is fantastic. Great service by the staff there. Grilled asparagus is also excellent.

We had the BGR with the works. Fresh buns, great flavor. Fries were crispy. Delicious. For the price, very happy with our meal. I would definitely go back.
