Its the Experience

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... read 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.

This small restaurant in a strip center in Roswell was a pleasant surprise. If you're looking for a great cheeseburger in this area, look no further. It compares favorably with Five Guys and Johnny Rockets. Can't wait to go back.

I have been a frequent customer of this hidden spot since the 70s. It is not only a childhood memory, it is a part of my life. Jimmy makes everyone feel at home either by good conversation or maybe by a little harassment. Jimmy make everything from scratch. The biscuits only compare with my Grandmothers and the tenderloin is simply... More

All rhea's locations serve consistently great burgers. The rhea's special is hands down my favorite burger. Fresh toppings and crispy crinklecut fries are yummy too. Jimmy at the original Rhea's is a great local citizen. A unique Roswell treasure!

Rhea's is good simple food - nothing fancy, but the burgers and fries are out of this world. The food is cheap - two people can eat dinner for under $15. Rhea's has several locations in Roswell. I've tried them all - and they are all good.
