We love coming here for burgers. They are fresh and superb. Occasionally we get the beer-battered onion rings and they're very good. Their menu is huge and impressive for a burger place but we always get the double cheeseburgers. Best ever

I love this for a quick easy lunch. I really love this easy place. It might not be the healthiest food, but it is really good.

This restaurant hit the spot and was quick enough for a half hour lunch break. The hamburger wasn't the best I've ever had but was definitely better than any fast food place. It is a unique place with a neat ambiance. I will return again the next time I'm in the area.

We go to this Bill Gray's quite a bit because it's a place that both kids will actually eat at, and we enjoy getting Abbott's afterwards as well. This past visit was actually for takeout and I was a little worried about how everything would last driving home, especially when you get fries and onion rings, they often get soggy,... More

Took a group of middle school youth here for dinner and it worked out perfectly. Everyone orders for themselves and can pay individually if needed. Great variety and the milkshakes are so amazing. The burgers can get VERY messy and you will need a supply of napkins and the tray the food is served in to catch the drippings but... More

Order it on a hard roll. Get the chili cheese fries and a beer to wash it all down. Three napkins ... minimum.

Burgers as you want it. I recommend the Rochester famous "hot sauce" with onions served on a hard roll. The Friday haddock fish frys are lightly bread and are excellent and very generous. For light diners one order can serve two.

The restaurant was very clean and the staff was friendly. The place was busy but service was still pretty fast. The burgers were huge and ad a pile of fries with it. Will go again.
