Good food. Good atmosphere

Every once in a while you get that craving for a burger. Plan B is there to fill that craving. The food is great and the atmosphere is sweet. I especially like sitting around the bar area. One added bonus about it's location is the easy parking

Excellent burgers at good prices. I went for the bacon cheese, which comes with smoky bacon, American, caramelized onions, and garlic mayo on the side. Heavenly without the mayo, but adding it really brought out the sweetness of the onions and all the other flavors so well. Nice fries. My husband's 3 Shroom burger with truffle fries was the height... More

Thomas M recommended one of the best burgers! Indeed it was! He was also very knowledgeable of the beers and offered some great suggestions for breweries. Thanks. The Guy from TEXAS!

My wife and I brought our 10 year old grandson to Plan B for lunch recently. They have a terrific beer selection and good information to assist you in trying something new. They rate the alcohol level and the bitterness level as well as the color, brewery and price. The burgers are terrific, of course, but so are the nachos.... More

We come here on a pretty regular basis, and it is always a good time. I don't think I've ever had a bad experience. The servers are all nice and polite. The burgers are of course amazing, I think I've had at least 4 of their different burgers and they were all great. Also love their selection of local brews... More

This is a well designed bar with a dark wood interior and good beer selection. We stumbled upon this when we found ourselves trapped in W. Hartford due to very heavy traffic on the freeway. After seating our party there was initially no table service and I had to walk to the bar and serve myself. Cesar salad was decent... More

Always crowded, good food, good drinks, fresh ingredients. Bar serves lots of beers on tap, but I go for the cosmos. Service is excellent and always with a smile. Lack of parking in the neighborhood is the only down side.

The burgers here are amazing - I had a burger salad - which is essentially a cheese burger with bacon atop a salad with pickles on the side, fries, lettuce, tomatoes, etc with a special dressing similar to thousand island. It was really wonderful - normally I remove the bun anyway so I did not miss it at all. The... More

Whether you prefer the pretzel bun, lettuce or traditional they have a burger for you! I went with cheese & bacon with tater tots and my fiancé went for the Cuban with traditional fries. Delicious! And a craft beer or a spicy Bloody Mary and your lunch is complete. Worth the visit!

When this place opened we could not get enough. The burgers seemed to be better then even Max Burger in West Hartford which is a really terrific burger restaurant. The bourbon menu is extensive and we love bourbon. We really enjoy that part of Plan B quite a bit. But, the quality of the food has gone down while the... More
