Stopped in for a late lunch traveling from Asheville to Cumming because Magnolia Cafe was closed. We got lucky and had a great lunch. Fries were hand-cut and burgers melted in your mouth. Fixed the old fashioned way and the buns were toasted and buttered....More

An old school diner. Burgers, hot dogs, and fries. A fun place to go with kids. It's like a step back to 1950s. Good food.

Cheeseburger is the best around go there regularly- it’s a must place to visit if in the area. Recently remodeled still looks great and food is still really good.

My wife really wanted to visit an authentic, traditional "American Diner" whilst we were in the States. This came highly recommended, and we weren't disappointed. The difference between these hand made burgers and mass produced, franchise chain burgers is vast. Easily the nicest "fast food"...More

The Collegiate has been serving burgers, hotdogs, shakes and fries in Gainesville for decades and is a favorite among locals. It’s THE place to go on the square for a burger on a Saturday afternoon.

Looking for a great cheeseburger, then look no further. The staff here always treats you so nice and really good milkshakes.

Real ground beef patted out and grilled with a heaping order of fries. Try the coleslaw on your burger for a real treat.

Service dogs only. There are other restaurants around the square that have outdoor seating where dogs are welcome but unfortunately the Collegiate doesn't
