I was a little disappointed on this visit. I had bragged to the other people in my group that we had to go here because they have the best burgers. There was nobody in line ahead of us and only 1 other person in the restaurant. We had to stand and wait to have our order taken and out of... More

We stopped in with 20+ people and the burgers were made fresh! They served us in unheard of timing! The food was delicious! We loved this joint!

I must admit, I am a fan of the Burger Joint. Although pretty pricey, let's face it, you can get a lot of cheap eats around Bethesda,they do have some great food. There is an option of to-go or to sit and dine. They have booths and some tables inside and outside, which they do try to keep clean. Food... More

I enjoyed my breakfast at BWI so much that I saved the receipt as a reminder to write a review. I had a breakfast sandwich with sausage and a coffee for $8.00. The coffee ($2) was HUGE and delicious. Ditto for the sandwich on size and taste. It had a just-fried egg, a yummy cheesy sauce and the sausage was... More

My self proclaimed food snob friend loves this place. The burgers were very tasty -- nice and thick and juicy. Fries were good too. My only issue was that I ordered my burger "bunless" (lettuce wrapped) because I need to eat Gluten Free... and they made it with a bun. I brought it back to the counter and they were... More

Had read an awesome article about this place months ago, so I couldn't wait to go there and try some burgers. Went there. Got two plain burgers -- but could hardly eat them from the extremely salty taste, like they were around 50 percent salt. Recently saw the reviews here on TA, and thought I'd take a chance again. Ordered... More

Terrific gourmet made-to-order burgers. My favorite: the cheeseburger sliders, which is the perfect portion size. Many burgers tend to be too filling. Fries are very good but only come in one large size. Kids meals are ample, with choice of two sliders or hot dog with fries and drink. Looking for lo-cal options? Try the Ahi Tuna burger wrapped in... More
