Great atmosphere with a great selection of beer and a burger you will not forget! Had the cheddar bacon burger with a side of Parmesan fries and a local IPA. Everything was excellent and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Went back two days later for more!

Well Plan B that is what it was, except for us it was Plan D. I started looking for a Cuban sandwich for dinner, found a high end Spanish restaurant and after looking at the menu passed on that one, the yelped up another choice that seemed to be highly rated, but upon arrival was in a ghetto zone and...

Nice selection of choices for burgers including two vegetarian options and a salmon burger option. I chose the porta burger with smoked gouda. The burger was delicious, lots of flavor, loved the garlic mayo, I would definately... More

Well our trip to Plan B was elongated, involving multiple other restaurants and a drive around hartford! I wanted a Cuban Sandwich. Sounds simple Enough. So we found a highly rated place that came up in our Yelping. We it turned out to be a high end Spanish restaurant and was a bit more than I wanted. So Fernando made... More

If you are looking for the gourmet burger joint look no further. in three days I ate here 2 times and tried 3 burgers. The New Englander was great. Fresh thick burger patty, spinach, tomato, Lobster and smoked Gouda I am drooling writing this. You know it is a great burger place when they ask pink or no pink. 4... More

We went twice after the remodel. Prior to that it was one of our favorites as we would regularly go with neighbors. Now it's a place we would consider once and a while. It's noisy, hard to have a conversation. The food was better after our first visit and the staff was more attentive. Food was quicker to come out... More

Last weekend I was craving a burger so my SO and I went to Plan B in West Hartford. True to the reviews when we arrived we were told it'd be an hour wait. We weren't in a hurry and it was nice enough weather outside to not make this a deal breaker. They took our name and phone number... More

Last weekend, with a wind chill temperature of 7-degrees, a young couple came to Plan B with their dog, tied the dog to the fence out front, and proceeded into the bar where they appeared to be in no hurry (not just picking up an order to go). The entire bar was abuzz about the poor dog being left alone... More

And that is the concept... great burgers, bourbon and beers -- in a fun, casual, upscale environment. While not cheap, it is good -- and they claim all the meat is all-natural, etc, so that might justify the higher cost. While I am a bit jaded on the burger bar concept, this place sets the standard and is worth the... More
