kind of greasy, nothing to rave about, do not like having to sit in the car to eat. Fries were very hot, but hard, no salt. If you like to stand in a long line, eat greasy food and have to eat outside on the ground or in you car this is the place for you

My family came here after a basketball game. We always read Trip Advisor to find new "no chain" places to eat while visiting other towns. This place was rated #2. It was by far the best burger we have had. My kids even asked for seconds!! The next time we are in Paxton, this will be a MUST for this... More

I have literally eaten cheeseburgers all over the United States and as far as fast food these are truly the best! Shakes are great and such affordable prices!

They are ok. You want to stand in a long line and wait for a thin greasy burger- this is your place. The fries are just frozen fries, shakes are good- but not fabulous. Prices are good though. But I don't understand why everyone in the area just raves about this place.

My family goes here often for quick meals. This is a great place to go for great food at a cheap price. I would recommend to anyone passing through that doesn't know about it. Make sure to bring cash.

Great Food and cheap prices! They have daily specials and several other choices on the menu! Service is fast but no inside seating at all!

Despite the name this cash and carry enclosed hamburger stand sells sandwiches as well. The burgers were hot, fresh and delicious and the shakes divine. The prices were astoundingly low, (I hope the owners don't read this and raise the prices).

This place might look like a hole in the wall but don't let that fool you. They definitely have some good food. The hours are tricky with lunch and dinner hours only and close between but definitely worth a stop. They have a nice greasy burger that will cure any hang over or pregnancy fix or just an over all... More

If you didn't know what goes on behind the walls, you'd never think about stopping at Just Hamburgers at 214 East Ottawa Street in Paxton, a small Downstate community north of Champaign on I-57. It is located off exit 261 on old Route 45. It's a small building, more of a shack, a hole in the wall, no restrooms, no... More
