Looking for a great cheeseburger, then look no further. The staff here always treats you so nice and really good milkshakes.

Real ground beef patted out and grilled with a heaping order of fries. Try the coleslaw on your burger for a real treat.

My wife and I stop in whenever we are craving a “good ol” hamburger! The fries are fresh cut and the hamburgers are cooked to order with fresh lean beef. Service is great and the food is consistently excellent! #1 small business.

This is the best hamburger restaurant in Gainesville. The Collegiate has been at that location since the 1940's. If you want a good hamburger I recommend going there.

Service dogs only. There are other restaurants around the square that have outdoor seating where dogs are welcome but unfortunately the Collegiate doesn't

They have regular burger and fries and such. Not really a gluten free kind of place.
