I typically get the regular Only Burger and fried pickles. Sometimes I will get a carnivorous dessert like the Lamb Slider. If I need a meal of a burger then the Carolina Burger is the messy remedy.

I used to be Only Burger's biggest fan, but it doesn't seem to be what it once was. After my last visit, I took 2-3 years off. Multiple issues that time. Mostly balking at preparing the toppings as I like them--like another awesome burger chain happily does: roasted fresh jalapeños... and their policy of expiring gift certificates that can easily...

Had lunch at Only Burger today, had a cheeseburger and fries and a diet lemonade. The burger was good - juicy but not greasy. The fries are of the shoestring variety and made fresh in house. Not the best I've had but way better than the frozen ones at most fast food spots. I like the fact that they offer... More

We were in town for a wedding and I was in charge of finding the lunch spot. We decided to get a burger after reading a few reviews. We were able to walk right up to the counter and place our order. I had the Texan and loved it! The onions rings were awesome and the fries were no joke... More

Loved the burger I had there. It was the Carolina Style. Not sure you can go wrong as there were several other good ones on the menu as well. Also had an Orange Creamsicle shake that was outstanding. Highly recommend.

We just wanted a quick bite by our hotel and stumbled upon this place. Sometimes you just get lucky. Let's start with the onion rings...goodness gracious. If you like onion rings - just go - you have to. Insanely good. practically a filling meal unto themselves. Burgers were made to order...no issues there. We didn't get too crazy, mostly bacon...

We had planned on going to a brewery to eat, but they had a long line as lots was going on in the area that evening. So someone recommended Only Burger and the food was good, and beer selection awesome. Still like the other place, but we very much enjoyed the food here. Also got to meet one of the... More

This was a small restaurant with friendly and quick service. My husband and I went there to especially try out their burgers. The burgers were pretty thick and juicy, but bland in taste. The onion rings were marvelous!

We have been renovating our house recently and needed a quick dinner. My husband went out to get some lamb sliders, for iced green tomato sliders and fried onion rings. The lamb had tziki sauce and tomatoes had romalade sauce and were very delicious. The onions were crisp and tasty. A great dinner all in all
