If you don't like my food - there's the door

The best burger in Roswell bar none. This is a simple no nonsense eatery tucked away in the back of an old grocery store. Get the Rhea's special - a burger on French bread with all the trimmings. And tell Jimmy how good his food is!

Just had to see for ourselves we were not disappointed ! The hamburger was all I had expected. Just like the old days. Saw the BLT being made. Will try it next time for sure. Worth the trip if you like old fashion burgers

Went there for breakfast last week and the cook/server. Took my order, then cooked it (without washing his hands) then took money from another guest (didn't wash his hands) and continued cooking my food. Already freaked out by what I saw, I decided (bad idea) to eat it and it was SUPER GREASY. Coffee was mediocre and I was afraid... More

I brought my son for some takeout and Jimmy cooked us up some cheeseburgers. This is a killer cheap burger! I did not realize it was all cash but Jimmy said to come back and pay him later. He said he would remember my face and knew I would come back to take care of it. Old school service and... More

Love these guys and the food is just greasy and good at this neighborhood hole in the wall. Prices are good and only your heart doctor will not like your eating here.

This place is like going back in time to the greasy burger places you ate at as a child - before the chains took over the market. The burgers are great and the atmosphere is a hole in the wall restaurant. AND I love this place! If you have lived in Roswell for more than 5 years and have not... More

No frills, but if you want the best breakfast sandwich or a great burger and onion rings go to Rhea's, if not than like his motto says: "if you don't like my food, there's the door!" I disagree with the prior reviewer who said that this is what Roswell thought was good food before Canton Street. I have lived here... More

Jimmy has had this place over 20 years. Don't come here for dinner, their not open. Each burger made to order on French bread cooked by the owner. Greasy, nice and cooked to perfection

Best hamburger in Georgia. Made from fresh meat and not a frozen patty makes it taste even better. The Special is the best and you can't beat the price.

This must have been what Roswell thought was good before Canton St brought foodies to Roswell. It's kinda like a trip to the Varsity, greasy good but much better options around.
