Very good burger and fries!!!

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

Very friendly staff, very quick service. Reasonably priced. I don't like thin fries, but there's are good - and the cheese sauce was GREAT! Nothing to dislike here. We will definitely eat here again.

I have never been to a fast food restaurant that offered such great customer service. They almost seemed like family. Our party of 8 enjoyed our burger & fries.

Came to Bloomington to do some giftcard shopping the day after Christmas. A friend from work recommended it so we tried it out. I liked the fact that the menu is basic and you can choose the toppings you want without having to worry about what's on your burger. Got the 1/2 pound meathead with pepperjack cheese, giardiniera, grilled onions,... More

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.

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.
