My husband, son and I recently tried this place. They had different burgers and I had a burger/salad. We all really enjoyed it. You can order any burger in a salad bowl and they have different kinds of burgers. They also know how to cook a burger different ways - medium rare, etc. - correctly. The fries were really good,...

My husband and I went here and ordered the Wellington and the Salmon BLT. The beef patty itself in the Wellington burger was delicious, I'l give them that. The mushrooms and truffles were in a pasty brown goo (maybe it was supposed to be a gravy??). I like bleu cheese as much as the next person, but there was WAY... More

I have been driving past this restaurant since I moved to Sterling and finally decided to visit BGR after a fun day out in Leesburg. Curtis was super nice on the phone when I made my pick-up order. I arrived and my order was waiting for me. I had the garlic fries, which were super tasty, but not too garlic-y.... More

The food is a little pricy for a burger but well worth it. Burgers made of top cuts of beef, cooked to order on the grill. Fries are great. they have monthly specials like the reuben burger (with corned beef, dressing and sauerkraut on top) or Korean BBQ (with kimchee, BBQ sauce, etc). They are also willing to forgo a...

My kids found their bacon cheeseburgers okay. They were cooked to temps ordered. Place is cute. Restrooms were clean. Fries are generous....think 1 order for 3 people to share. Turkey burger was so bad neither of us could eat it. More like poorly made turkey meatloaf. Seems over priced for less than good burgers. Disappointing.

We have had burgers twice and both were outstanding. They will leave the burger pink and give you a runny egg - so few places with do this. We also enjoyed the fries. And the price is really good for what you get. Just thinking about it is making me want one now!

Me and wife were staying local at the Hawthorn and picked this joint to make our hamburgers. The burgers are truly amazing. The tastes in the Tripple D Burger went together very well. Everything is ala-cart so that drives the price up a bit but hey so it is at any decent burger joint. All the ingredients were farm fresh... More

This location is close to my home, with easy access and plenty of parking. The food is cooked to order and the portions are plentiful. It is definitely more expensive than fast food, but they always have a coupon in the local paper for $2.00 off their monthly featured Gourmet Burger or free fries with order over $25, so it... More

Needed something quick to eat and pulled into the BGR. We had never heard of it before and thought we'd give it a try. Ordered the house special, a buffalo blue burger, a beef paddy with celery, blu cheese and buffalo sauce. Pretty tasty. I asked the cashier if they could cut the burger in half for us, but he...

My favorite burger is the Wellington, with blue cheese, mushrooms, and black truffle shavings. It's greasy, decadent, and without equal, about $10.
