Burger joint

They were fairly busy and had one waitress working. The food was okay, nothing special, but the root beer float was awesome and the drink cups are very large.

It is not often you find yourself in the middle of a dining nightmare but that is exactly what several friends, my wife and I happened into. The 10 dollar hamburger is so thin it had to be sliced by a laser or some surgical tool. It was rediculous and practically raw. The hotdogs were equally disgusting according to the... More

I have to admit that the burgers in this place are actually good. I'm just not sure that they are worth the wait. We went in later in the evening and the place was about half full. We immediately realized that there may be a wait...and there was. We thought a burger joint that looked like this would be a... More

My first time eating here after many any recommendations from friend and co workers. I had the sliders add cheese. And fries. The sliders had absolutely nothing on them except cheese and bread. Nothing else.The fries were very skinny fries and ok. I need to go back before I give a real negative or positive for this place. But my... More

The food is awesome. The staff is friendly and the seating is good. We love the outside patio. Great milkshakes! They also serve beer and wine. It's located in a great area. Lots of shopping and things to do. Great ave to people watch. Great for families, couples, or anyone.

Had Linner. Food is not easy because kids are finicky and I'm vegetarian. It's a simple burger place with awesome shakes. But I went when it was empty. So service was fast. And the end server forgot to pick up his gratuity and I wanted a last cup of water before I left. But other than that the burger and... More

Hartwell's is a simple burger and soda shop located in Baytown Wharf Village. It has a fairly limited menu, but keep in mind it is a burger joint. We ordered burgers and upon delivery to our table, I saw the bun, the cheese, the lettuce and the pickles....but I needed a magnifying glass to find the burger. I heard Clara... More

We went to Hartells on 7/22 for dinner. My daughter has a serious seafood allergy and we asked our server if we could speak to the kitchen manager. Conor came out and explained to us they use non transferable oil and keep the fries separate from the sea food. It was so nice to actually get a professional answer because... More

Arrived an hour and fifteen minutes prior to close. Waited for 10 min for the hostess to tell us that the table that could fit us was "closed". Sat down to order and the waiter said "sorry, we don't have any tea and can't make any because we are trying to get out of here". I asked what time they... More
