I really do. My family likes to support local businesses. We have tried Burger 55 to go and dine in. Disappointed every time. The meat is overcooked. The fries are too salty. My husband ordered the onion rings, hoping that for the price, they decided to actually make them fresh. Not only were they not fresh, they were saturated in... More

Over $13 for a bacon cheeseburger and fries seems a bit steep and then add $5 for a bottle of root beer. Way too expensive imo

Well this place is great for a gourmet burger - made to order. It's a bit pricey as anything extra is an extra charge including your sides. Great experience though. Extremely busy in the summer months and with the rushes the staff can get slammed and in that position they can get a bit short and their charisma goes out... More

Made a 60 km trip (one way) to meet family and try out this burger place that I'd heard so much about. Anticipation and expectations were high! Wow, were we disappointed. Perhaps our mistake was in all three of us ordering the "monthly special", the Chicken Waffle "burger" ($12 just for the burger/sandwich). Pricey for sure, but expected it to... More

Cute place and love the idea of custom ordering. I had my burger on lettuce with cheese, mushrooms, bacon, tomato, roasted garlic..... You could add anything except the kitchen sink! Oh and goat cheese, they need to add that to their offerings! But Mac and cheese, egg, hot dogs, many different cheeses, meats and sauces. My burger arrived nicely cut... More

Very good burger joint. Everything seemed fresh, and well portioned. Price can get up there depending on what you order. Will be back again!

Burger 55 is a fantastic place to eat gourmet, custom made burgers. Our family has eaten there several times. There is no menu per se at Burger 55, but rather a multiple categories of check lists. You check off what kind of meat you'd like (beef, pork, turkey, bison, portabello mushroom etc) then check of the type of bun you'd... More

Heard all about Burger 55 and finally got a chance to visit. Overall I was underwhelmed First, it cost me $13-something for a burger, fries and can of pop. I liked the idea of checking off your selection of toppings, but it took a very long time to cook a burger. Best I can say about the burger it that... More

It has the feel of an old time drive-in burger place, with seating outdoors and in.I don't really care for the line up to order thing, and that is my only negative. This place is in a new location, just behind it's old, smaller building, and I guess they really needed a seating area. They put out real good sides,and... More
