Went to Plan B for the first time last night and I already can't wait to go back! My burger was incredible. I got the bacon cheeseburger topped off with caramelized onions and garlic mayo... absolutely amazing. Burger was cooked to perfection and packed with flavor. The "fancy fries" served with the burger were pretty standard, I had to load... More

We visited on a Wednesday night and both the restaurant and bar area were very busy- so it was quite cramped. The bar is classic old Irish bar- big beer selection. Service was very good. The food is definitely American and is dominated by a wide selection of burgers and appetizers. Menu was a little light on the vegetarian offerings... More

This is great stop on a trip through CT or a regular hang out if you live in West Hartford. Truffle fries are thin and crispy and well-flavored. Tuna burger was delicious. Beef burgers were juicy and generous. Kale super salad was, well, super. Yum. We will be back.

Living in the area, we frequent Plan B for the food and consistency. Must get there early, gets crowded. Nice weather dining outside is a plus. Dinners, salads, are as good as burgers! The con, (good weather dining outside) too many smokers hanging outside where the smoke drifts, sooo gross!!!!!

Finally got to the original Plan B and boy was it good! They never, ever disappoint with their burgers and beer selection. Best tater tots around! My favorite is the West Coast burger with kalamata mayo, avocado and fried egg. Ridiculously good. Great waitress too!

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...
