Another Great Burger Joint

They're popping up all over. Must be half a dozen Plan B's now and the one in fashionable west hartford is pretty damn good. Great burgers and sides and a super bartender who knows her way around the bar. Great beer selection. Sometimes it gets busy but you'd expect that. Two steps up from 5 Guys... read more

We started with the fried shrimp! It came with this delicious special sauce and perfectly fried jalapeño slices! Between the 3 of us we had the turkey burger, Philly cheesesteak burger, and a spicy chipotle burger with 2 fried jalapeño poppers! I have to say after we each sampled each other's plates we were shocked by how delicious, and well... More

I ordered a cheeseburger and it was cooked perfectly and very tasty. The wait staff service was prompt and we will definitely be back.

Great tuna burger - misnamed. About a 5 oz grilled tuna steak medium rare, as asked for on a bed of lettuce (they call it in the grass) with wasabi mayo was fantastic. Burger salad with house "special" dressing was both huge and delicious and the burger was perfectly cooked. Try the deep fried pickle, pepperoncini and jalapeño appetizer. Peppers... More

Started with the lobster sliders so good and then had a classic bacon cheeseburger everything from the bun to the meat was top notch quality and there is always a great selection of ipa's on draft.

Alexa is a fantastic bartender. She lights up the bar. My criteria for a great batender is "remember my name" and have my drink ready before I sit down. She did both! Highly recommend this bar. Burgers live up to the reputation. Best I've had anywhere. Check it out!

We've become regulars at Plan B, it's always great. They have local brews on tap and a long list of bourbon and other drinks. The burgers have never disappointed either, particularly their chicken and turkey burgers. The staff is friendly and helpful for anyone with food allergies. I've never had a negative experience even with the large volume of people... More

This is a happening place during the summer with their popular hamburger items. The quality of food is very good and prices are not cheap, to match the food quality.

How often do you get served the perfect burger and sides? You can count on it if you're dining at Plan B. Plan B stands so far and above other restaurants for amazing bar food that it should have a special category for itself. Great food, icy drinks and perfect salads too if you want one.
