So glad the new owners retained the best burger in the burbs! Must try the quesadilla burger! The cheese curds and Cole slaw are awesome, too,

Great little neighborhood spot for outstanding burgers for lunch or dinner. Set in a small quaint little old house. Seating is limited and ambiance is that of a local family diner. Worth the trip for the burgers.

A Palatine tradition is continued and improved upon. Enthusiastic ownership took over a great place and improved on customer service and (even) the menu.

With all sorts of burger places around, BRANDTS has maintained its ability to stay towards the top of the list. Their meat is succulent and juicy. My typical order is their cheese burger on a pretzel bun with tomato, grilled Os, and crisp lettuce. It's simple yet delicious. Pair that with their delicious homemade slaw and chips and you're in...

Brandts is a Palatine institution. I was concerned the new owners would lessen the experience, but it is as good if not better than it ever was. And now the parking lot has been brought into the 21st Century. I really like burgers, and they serve one of, if not the best plain old hamburgers/cheeseburgers in the northwest suburbs. Other...

If you want the best burger headed to Brandt's. On the corner of Northwest Highway and Quinten in a white frame house for over 50 years is Brandts. Multiple choices for buns, including pretzel bun which is my favorite. They also serve a fish and chips that is delicious. The ribs are famous. When we don't know what we have... More

I got one of their burgers since that's what they are known for. The burger was very good and the homemade coleslaw was fabulous. The service was good. Very reasonably priced.

Seldom will you find a dining place that consistently meets high standards over the years. Brandt's does it every time. You've not had a cheeseburger until you enjoy one cooked here. Awesome begins to describe the savory, fantastic meals. Don't walk. Get yourself over there enjoy and relax. This is #1.

I tend to eat a painfully healthy diet. Fitness Pal is my friend. However, when it's time to have a "cheat meal" this place always comes to mind. For my money they offer one of the best burgers around. It's a tiny place with a solid bunch of regulars for the bar area. Service with a smile and fast turns... More
