After having heard about Powers many times from a co-worker he suggested we take a trip there for lunch. We were still a half a block away and I could already smell the onions. I had 3 cheeseburgers with onions and they were excellent. And when I say with onions they really heap the sauteed onions on. These are everything... More

This is located directly behind the Embassy Theatre and Grand Wayne Center. A two block walk. The inside is the size of a hallway. Sliders are put on a dinner roll with a half slice of American cheese and 3 lbs of grilled onions. I asked for just a few "raw" onion slices. They come with mustard, ketchup and the... More

If you read the reviews, and you should, you will know before you get there seating is limited, no fries, and yes you will smell like onions the rest of the day. The burgers are a maybe a little overpriced, but if you want cheap go to a franchise restaurant. The prices aren't that expensive though. Each burger seems to... More

Powers is a small diner that is a Fort Wayne tradition. The burgers are cooked with onions and can be had with or without cheese. Paired with a bowl of chili, it's hard to beat. Whether you want to sit at the counter, or take them to go, you won't be disappointed with these sliders!

Great small cheeseburgers, smothered in grilled onions. Great comfort food, there are times when nothing beats a Power's cheeseburger.

The cheeseburgers are wonderfully very unique, flavorful and absolutely mouth watering! I loved them as a kid, young adult and now an older person that whenever I visit Ft.

Powers is a place you have to visit while in Fort Wayne. Simple delicious burgers cooked right in front of you. Fast food the way it should be.

Have been here several times, food is always fast and good. Always seems to be busy so you might want to plan to get your food to go and eat elsewhere.
