Can’t believe Booches has not been featured on Food Network... iconic pool hall and burger joint where cross section of college students, construction workers, small business workers, professors, lawyers, etc. come for the burgers fresh off the griddle. Don’t miss this place if you visit...More

Passing through Columbia and was told to eat here. Glad I did. FUN environment. Burgers were fresh and full of flavor. Chips were great...a small, local provider. Pricing was reasonable. Cash ONLY.
