Meathead's has become standard fare for us. When we head out for burgers, it's usually Meathead's. We enjoy the variety of burger choices and the fries are done right! We never leave hungry. There's plenty of food. Recently we've started sharing an order of fries....yes, they are that big.

Been to Meatheads several times. The burger and fries have always been top notch. One of the better burger joints in Bloomington/Normal.

I love a good burger and I don't mind paying if it's sure to hit the spot. This place was a disappointment. There was nothing special about the burgers. You could definitely tell they were frozen and didn't have a whole lot of flavor. That's probably why they douse them in various sauces. The fries were nothing special. Just overall... More

Meatheads has the best cheeseburger in town. The "Little Mezthead" is a good sized sandwich, so order that unless you are really hungry.

College favorite can be compared to Smashburger or Five Guys. Create your own burger with a variety of toppings and sauces. Fries are very good and the Freestyle soda machine is always a hit with the family. Great location - close to ISU and Wesleyan

What's not to love. Free drinks for high school students with ids. Amazing beverage machine, rewards card which gets you free food. Double points on Monday. Outstanding burgers fries salads and now the cookie dough from fish tank. Pair all of that with attentive smiling servers and managers. Thank you for being here in bloomington normal

Best burger chain in Bloomington, similar to 5 guys, and smash burger but I think the burger at meatheads is better.

My family and I had the opportunity to visit. We really enjoyed our food, it was great. The folks running this establishment really go out of their way to make sure you are happy with the service. I'm planning to return before I head back home to dc.

Based on the reviews here, we went to this Meatheads instead of Smashburger since we don't have this chain in Texas. Unfortunately, I don't get the hype. Ordinary preformed patties, tasteless iceberg lettuce, and watery tomatoes that were still partly green. Cajun fries were limp and too salty but not spicy. Smashburger is much better for the price.

Read about Meatheads in a national news article about up-and-coming burger joints, so we decided to stop by for dinner when we were passing through town. While the menu, at first, is a bit overwhelming, once you figure out what you want it's all well worth it. The small cheeseburgers come with two patties that are thin (think Steak and... More
