Great burgers and more.

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

We don't do burger joints usually, but it sounded good that day and we just happened to see Hamburger Heaven. We were very surprised. The burgers were big and juicy and fresh made. You order at the counter and take the food to a table, so it is a fast food burger place. It is way better than 5 Guys... More

Don't care for the hamburgers much, but the turkey sandwich is really good. Ice cream is good, cheese fries nice and gooey. Quick service, and a family friendly place.

Hamburger was disappointing and not anything special. Was really looking for a good burger this was not that. Price is not cheap. Fries weren't bad

Had a meeting up the road and just drove three hours.. So was looking for someplace quick to grab a bite.. I went in and ordered a burger and they took the burger out of a big bin and stuck on the grill..(The burger was already cooked and sitting in a bin of juices or water.. They put on the... More
