I have been to this place a dozen times. My wife and kids like it but I have to say I am overall unimpressed. The burgers are just okay. Everything and I mean everything else in the menu is overpriced and subjected to some kind of flavor extractor machine. Too many other decent choices in the center to waste your... More

This is one popular spot. You can call ahead and get your name on the waiting list, which I highly recommend--we went for lunch on Saturday and it was packed. The burgers, shakes and sides were wonderful. Very loud, so if your hearing is not the best, beware! Seems to be popular with all age groups.

This is the third time we've enjoyed lunch here. We stop here when we come to town for shopping. The food was good. My wife had the turkey sandwich. It was good but she found they include way too much meat. Not complaining on the quantity of food only that she had to take half the sandwich home. She would... More

While in Hartford for an Appellate argument I had an opportunity to stop here for lunch. My law partner had raved about the Kobe burger and CT Magazine had it as best burger restaurant in state. I arrived as the restaurant opened at 11:30 and received prompt friendly service. I ordered the Kobe and a glass of Cabernet. The burger... More

My wife and I ate there early on a Sunday evening and enjoyed it, but... advice to burger lovers who do NOT enjoy beef well-done -- order one degree rarer than you normally like it. I ordered "medium rare" and it came medium. I remembered after the fact that in most burger restaurants, you need to order rarer than you... More

This is the mecca of burgers in the Hartford Area. I define this as a classic burger. When I'm in the mood I run to Ted's or Louis Lunch but I think of those as more of a specialty type of burger. Why 4 stars do you ask? We git there today at about 11:20 - walked right in and... More

Three of us had burgers. One had a specialty burger and she wished she had ordered a regular one. I had the 8 oz regular burger with lettuce, tomato and their Max sauce which is sort of a spicier mayo. I expected it to be nice and flavorful and juicy as a good burger should be. It was on the...

Love Max Burger. The food is great, the service is also good. Can count on the best Burgers. Only problem is size of restaurant. It is small and crowded.

Stopped in on my way to NJ after reading the reviews. I was not disappointed! I love a good burger, and this was close to the best I've ever had (Farmhouse in Burlington Vt). They also had great drafts including Gandhi Bot. I sat at the bar, and the service was excellent. I will be sure to stop in again... More
