I appreciated the healthy choices in this burger joint. You can change the buns for lettuce wrap or a salad, or order delicious asparagus. The Ruben was very good, but we were disappointed with the Wellington. Reading that it comprised mushrooms, blue cheese, truffle flakes, caramelized onions, I thought it could only be delicious. We'll, besides the mushrooms, I could... More

We bought the lobster roll box set and two sliders. The lobster roll was pretty disappointing. Very wet bread (not sure why), more lettuce than meat, and almost minced lobster meat. Sliders were just ok. Not much flavor. I really hate giving bad reviews but probably wouldn't try those again!

If you like burgers, this place is a must! Everyone in our party loved their food. The prices were very reasonable too. What we liked most was the casual atmosphere and top notch service.

Won't do that again. It looked wonderful but the roll was very dry, some of the lobster meat had been way overcooked. To bad. It could have been excellent.

The burger I ordered took 15 minutes to make ( no one else in the store) and was absolutely the lowest grade beef that was possible to pass quality inspection. The grease from this burger saturated both buns and enough dripped onto the paper that i could have soaked another piece of bread with it. I could only eat about... More

Love a good burger so I go elsewhere. Not bad but there are better to be had in the area. Shakes are good.

Went once while I was at a meeting. It's a hamburger joint. Expect congeniality, good food, and prompt service.

The Burger Joint has very tasty burgers and great fries. Not really sure how it compares to most of its competitors since we tend not to eat out often for burgers (too easy at home). Nice location (parking is a pain in downtown Old Town) for foot traffic. Cost is a bit high but again, now out of line with... More
