Great burgers and fries (Veggie, too!)

I tried the veggie burger and sweet potato fries. Both were very good. First Burger also does take out, so call ahead and they will have it ready for you!

The atmosphere is fun and relaxed and they have some really inventive specials. I like that you can substitute chicken or a veggie patty for a burger at no extra charge. I only wish they had a turkey burger option! (I am allergic to beef and pork). The ingredients are FRESH and that is a huge deal to me.

First Burger doesn't do anything exceptional but it doesn't do anything poorly either. The burgers are ok with some of the specials spiking to above average. The prices are reasonable and the service is good.

We have enjoyed this delightful menu a few times in the past couple years. The burgers are the best, small town feeling with a great vibe. My wife absolutely loves the fried pickles and the mushroom burger. I love just a simple bacon cheeseburger and my daughter enjoys a few options on the menu. We will be back soon for... More

First, the burger was good as was the service. But, I probably won't be back as I found the restaurant lacking in ambience. It was a bit sterile to me aside from what artwork was on the walls. I did have to brush the salt and crumbs off my table from a previous diner and I found that the bathroom... More

It was clean and staff was friendly and the burgers were the best! I wish the hours would be better so we could go eat at an off time so we don't have to deal with a waiting line or busy waiters.

Stopped here for lunch while waiting for the train. So glad we did. Meat is fresh ground every morning, potatoes are fresh cut each morning for fries. The restaurant is small and it was packed. The staff was friendly and relaxed. The found the time to check back with us throughout our meal. Looking forward to a return visit.

A favorite lunch spot. The burgers are always excellent. We're partial to the tots and sweet potato fries. The 50/50 patty is so good - can't go wrong with bacon! Good service.

We have been to First Burger a couple of times. The most recent time we went it was quiet and nice. The food and service was excellent and the serving sizes were very generous. Everyone was happy with their meals. My son had the Hottie, his girlfriend had the Smokestack, my daughter had a veggie burger with several toppings include... More
