One of the best burgers ever

The service was very good, and it is without a doubt one of the best burgers ever. The French fries were also very good! The only problem I have is that they are in Albany which is 130 miles away so I'll have to wait a while before I can go back.

Love, love, love the Guac Burger. The location is cute and I had a great dining experience. I'm also a fan of the Tater Tots as the side.

Burger joint that is more than your basic burgers. Lot's of options, can get busy at lunch, so go early if you are time constrained. Burgers are quite good. I'm a little confused about the review that said no seasoning. The signature of the place is they do burgers with *so many* different options. I guess they were looking for... More

So we got here right when they opened and the service was friendly right away. I sat on the booth side which was uncomfortable because it's too high for the table and my feet barely touched the ground and it made it awkward to eat without spilling on myself. We started with the deep fried pickle spears. They were good,... More

Wanna great burger. Its here. On street parking. Sometimes a wait for a table. Casual and fun. Cow/Buffalo/Sweet potato fries, caramelized onions, tomato jam is better than Heinz ketchup (I know...but its true), a great bun. Save room for a really great chocolate shake...tell 'em to make it really chocolatey if you like that. I know...its old town Albany...they've got... More

The hamburgers here are always fresh and delicious. It's great that they have Painted Hills hamburger. I especially like the sweet potato fries.

They have THE BEST hamburgers. Love that they are grass fed. Always delicious. An always changing special is exciting. Onion rings are awesome. Not greasy. Slightly sweet and very crunchy.

My husband and I had lunch at First Burger last week. Even though we got there right at opening, the server was wearing a dirty apron which put me off a bit. My husband really loved his burger - a mixture of beef and bacon. I wasn't so crazy about my chili burger - the chili was pretty unexceptional, almost... More

This place has the most juicy burgers. I love their buffalo burger. One of my favorite things on the menu are the sweet potato fries and the twice fried onion rings. I don't eat a hamburger very often but when I want one I go here.
