They advertise fresh beef, but our burgers at Short Pump today tasted like frozen, uniform shape, tasteless and dry. Something's changed from the original days in Cary town. Will not be back.

Great burgers, great tater tots! Lots of burger options. Small seating area upstairs. More seating outside. Friendly staff. Easy free parking in a large parking lot nearby and convenient to shops and other areas of Carytown.

I can't eat fast food burgers anymore - they just don't compare! They have just about any burger you could think of - and if you find one they haven't thought of - you can still make it that way! Love the staff at the two locations I've been to. Short Pump looks awesome - love the wall art! Carytown... More

We were in town for a wedding and wanted a good late lunch spot the day after, and our group was craving burgers. Some local friends recommended this place. I don't eat meat or dairy, so I appreciated the vegetarian and vegan options offered. The vegan burger and fries were pretty good, but nothing amazing. Everything was fresh, and we... More

They make a great burger here with lots of options. I really like the bacon cheeseburger and the portions on fries and onion rings are large eough to share with several people (if you order the large size).

Visited Lakeside for takeout last evening. They were woefully slow due to being understaffed. It was the second visit to that location. I doubt I will go back. As for the burgers I would rate them large but average.

Specifically, if you can recall, the day and approximate time you were in? That way we can address it directly with the employees... More

Not only do they have AWESOME burger and fries, but their customer service is really f#$%in' cool. I came in with 3 of my godchildren and made a huge order. When the food came, I realized that I forgot to order a burger for myself. I was just worried about the kids and getting their food right. The cool dude... More

I took the family (5 of us) to Carytown Burgers & Fries. We sat outside on the deck and that part was relaxing and enjoyable. But I was overcharged by at least $10 (was not given an itemized receipt but added up what it should have been later) - the beer i ordered was as flat as a pancake, the... More
