Great burgers

Great burgers, a little loud but otherwise good ambiance, adequate service. The make-your-own burger is great, and they do have vegetarian/other options.

I'm sure from all the other reviews, you get the feeling Prime 16 has great burgers. And it really does. The first time I went, I simply got the Half Bacon Burger and one of the happy hour priced beers from their board. And I keep thinking of that burger and when I'll go back for another. Nicely done, Prime... More

Definitely arrive on an empty stomach - servings are large and oh-so-delicious. Go for Happy Hour, where selected wines and most draft beers (they have a massive selection!) are half price - great value!

I don't know if it is the nicest burger place in town but I do know that it is a delicious burger which is home made. I really appreciate this kind of food, which in addition is served at a very reasonable price. The service was ok, and the place is clean and well presented. I definitely recommend.

Came here for a going away party, stayed for burgers. The burgers are creative and delicious, but mine fell apart. This can happen and doesn't upset me, but some people might not like that. The fries however were amazing. Multiple toppings, like parm and truffle, made them irresistible. We had regular and sweet potato at the table and we fought... More

I particularly love the lamb burger served at this restaurant. The happy hour allows you to taste lots of interesting lagers etc from around the world for a great price! Staff are quick and friendly.

Decided to go à la carte to make my own burger and was not disappointed. There were so many things to choose from and I'd recommend that you go with the beef/bacon mix to start things off. I love their parmesan truffle fries and the kale salad was delicious as well. Plenty of beers to choose from to wash everything... More

This was our 3rd visit to Prime 16 and this time we shared a few appetizers with another couple. We really enjoyed all three apps. Our burgers were fantastic again.
