Ate here for the first time on a Saturday afternoon - friendly staff and great service with a smile! Food was delivered to our table quickly - 1/3 lb. burger and fries, grilled chicken - delicious fries! The young staff was attentive to the customers and they were keeping the tables and floor clean - kudos to all of you!... More

This outrageous restaurant offers such great variety and selections it is hard to choose. I love the burger with fried egg on it. You can't go wrong with any choice at Meatheads. Great location right by the college too.

This is not a half pound burger. It is 3 thin 2.66 ounce patties, presumably. Add a boring bun, with no option to upgrade = now I know why I dont go there.

Cleanest fast food joint ever. Can call ahead and pick up or eat in. Nice atmosphere. Quick service, two kinds of fries, spiced and original. Any burger anyway you want it. Avocado and roasted peppers too. Has patio for dining outside as well.

Locally owned and operated, Meatheads has been in business for about 10 years. The service is good, burgers are tasty and the cajun fries are excellent. A bit pricier than most burger joints but we like the place.

This was a perfect place to stop for a late lunch and my Kindle. The hamburger was awesome, especially with the sautéed mushrooms. But, I was absolutely loving the French Fries. They were so fresh and crunchy. With this being my first time at Meatheads, I was curious about the menu structure. I am happy to the say the young... More

First time customer. Their burger and fries was pretty good and the service was great. Much better than McDs, BK or other fast burger places. Atmosphere was modern and clean. I liked it.

Although the burger was greasy, it was good. The fries are excellent. A bit pricey .. 2 burgers (smaller 1/3lb), one fry, one medium tea, and a water was $16. It is alot like 5 guys.

We live 45 miles away, and have been coming to Meatheads since it was about 2 months old. We have always been treated well and great food. We hadn't been to town in about 4 months, so we had to stop in. They have, or had, a loyalty card, where you build points toward free food. I walked in, handed... More
