Good quality burgers, lots of variety

We're earning for a new favorite burger place. plan B satisfied our desire for a juicy burgers, cooked just right. The options/variety of burgers is good. We liked the fries a lot. The wait can be long at prime time, which has led us to other restaurants twice now. The Glastonburt location is... read more

We're earning for a new favorite burger place. plan B satisfied our desire for a juicy burgers, cooked just right. The options/variety of burgers is good. We liked the fries a lot. The wait can be long at prime time, which has led us to other restaurants twice now. The Glastonburt location is much larger and more upscale decor.

We go to Max Burger frequently and each time the food,and service is good and consderate repectively. While dependable may seem to suggest average, that is not at all the case. Max burgers are always just as one wants. The specials of the day provide a nice variation and I love the garlic spinach as a side.

I don't know how the Max group does it, but they have a winning combination. Max Burger is our favorite Max restaurant. They don't take reservations, but you can call ahead and get wait listed, which really helps. Happy Hour (4-6pm) is a great deal. You can get 2 beers and 4 good sized sliders for $12. The regular burgers... More

My family and I love to eat here. The burgers are always perfectly cooked, and they will make them rare. Every day they have a special and their vegi burger is incredibly good and moist. I don't often order one but their milk shakes are very good. The hamburgers are not cheap but the meat is sourced from reliable sources... More

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
