Enjoyed our group lunch, I had the Frito Pie which was very tasty. My friends had burgers which looked good and they said they were. Good patio atmosphere. Parking was no problem.

This bar is downtown and it's a funky neighborhood at night, but seemed safe. The place is a bar, primarily, rather than a restaurant but the food and service were quite good. The salads were surprisingly large. The pretzel bread is hot and tasty but unnecessarily greasy. Tell them to omit the butter and definitely omit the cheese sauce, which... More

The Burger Bar is a quaint but modern burger restaurant in downtown Amarillo. Parking was easy to get, food was FANTASTIC, service was great! We each got a burger and shared a large fry...the burgers were huge and the fries were amazing! I can't say enough good about The Burger Bar!

It took way too long to get our food. The burgers were very good, but order your fries without salt and salt them yourself. We could barely eat them as they were loaded with salt. I felt it was a little pricey for just a burger place.

Stopped for lunch on family trip to Mexico. I had the green chile hamburger. Excellent, fresh ground hamburger, great chiles. The wife had chicken quesadilla salad. She inhaled it. Son had fresh made corn dog. All in all great place, great food, friendly service. Would have given five stars except bathroom was a little on dirty side.

There are good choices of other items if someone in the group doesn't want a burger. We can recommend their burgers, though. Our server was pleasant. We received our appetizer (fried pickles) quickly and also our meals. There is a good beer choice and a full bar.

We stopped in for dinner the other night and had a great time. The service was on par. They were friendly and happy to recommend dishes. The deep fried Jalapeno's were great. Just the right amount of spice. The BBQ Chicken on Texas toast was amazing. The BBQ sauce was tangy and a great accompaniment to the dish.

Waitress was new and young, but she was pleasant. This didn't bother me. The burger was one of the better I've ever tasted. I would eat here again. basket of fries was also good. Since the waitress was young she admitted she didn't know too much about beer, but the bartender came over and made a few suggestions and brought... More

This place is under new management/ownership and let me tell you-it has gone from "that place is decent" to "best food-and-beer-on-the-patio place in town"! They recently expanded their patio, so it is twice as big, with fun lights and live music on the weekends. They have a great selection of craft beers on and off tap, along with a full... More

The burgers are great. Since I am a fan of spicy foods, the "Damn Hot" burger could be spicier. They have a good atmosphere and great service
