Greasy burgers.

Over rated burger spot. Greasy, saw them, after cooking burger, pour the grease over it. I know I shouldn't complain about fat in a burger, but too much isn't good either. Franks were better, but on the salty side. This reminds me of an old fashioned, on the road, burger spot. Heard it's been... read more

Very disappointed in the quality of the food. We have always picked hamburger heaven as our fav place for a hamburger, shakes, onion rings! Now would have to say 5 guys

The burgers and hot dogs were good. They were made to order, fresh, and hot. The french fries are thicker cut, which is great. We had one shake at our table, peanut butter. It was very thick but had just the right amount of peanut butter taste. Overall a good meal but nothing exceptional.

Had big burger and onion rings. Wife and I split the burger and it was very good. Service was very fast and cared about my order and checked it twice to make sure.

Stopped in for lunch while headed to Memphis. We had a burger combo and hamburger steak meal. Both were tasty and reasonably priced. Generally, food was good, service fast and friendly, and bathrooms clean.

This placed is a beloved birmingham landmark but my experience was not good. Cold Kringle cut fries and a burger that had a mealy consistency and a strange taste. Tossed it in the garbage because I was not sure if the meat had not gone bad.

I wasn't expecting the type of restaurant .. was expecting more of a sit-down type and surprised to find it was a fast food atmosphere .. BUT .. the food was great and thoroughly satisfied.

This is the best hamburger in Birmingham. It is really good. You need to add bacon. The shakes are out of this world.

I've visited Hamburger Heaven for lunch many times over the past few years. The quality is always good and consistent. I have noticed that the fries seem more greasy and soggy each time, although that could be my perception. I like this place - it's local and the service is fast. I've eaten burgers and chili cheese dogs. I recommend... More
