Recently there has been another place in town that has been voted best burgers in the state, but we have no idea how they beat out the Deli! Hands down best hamburgers, anywhere around! The atmosphere here is always enjoyable, though with being a little dive can get crowded. They have a lot of options for every taste on the... More

I've read recently there is another burger place in town that's winning awards-well, they don't even compare to Bypass! Hands down the best! All of their appetizers are outstanding, and the "deli" atmosphere is so unique!

Absolutely the best burger in Columbia. The family that owns it takes pride in their business and it shows through the service and food you receive. Maybe the best sweet tea too. You can also buy package beer and bottled drinks. Great place for a family meal.

This is a local establishment that has been around for a while and still provides excellent food and excellent atmosphere. This is the place for a cheeseburger and fries. They are the best. The chef hand pats out each burger from fresh ground chuck and cooks it to order. The fries are always hot and fresh, ready for a little... More

Had a great lunch here with a friend. Burgers were very good and the service was good as well. We had nothing to complain about and found it to be very well worth the money.

Stopped here for lunch one day, was not disappointed! Good, greasy burgers and the curly fries were good as well! My mom had the reuben sandwich and it was good. Enjoyed all of the local news articles on the walls throughout the joint. Cool little place worth a stop if you're hungry for a burger in Columbia!

We always have a great time, service, and food when we go here. Greasy spoon kinda place. These are the suggestions you get when you ask the locals what's good to eat around here.

Great burgers, fries, drinks. Place can get crowded at times but food makes up for crowding and noises. Not a lot of parking so we try to be early for whatever meal we are going for.

The first time I ate at By-Pass Deli I really didn't know what to expect. People said the food was great. The building is pretty old and not much to look at. I ordered my food and went to pay for it and the Lady behind the counter said you pay when you leave. She said "you might not like... More

Description
This is a local favorite established in 1966. A place to have a great burger, reuben, club or sandwich. Voted best burger of maury county many years. Its more than a burger joint, its a place to see friendly faces in a friendly atmosphere. It is an older place but is kept very clean and holds a health inspection grade of 100.
