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

Had the California burger and it was delicious as always. The fries are top notch as well. As for those who think it's greasy, that frankly, is one of the attractions for me. If I'm going to eat a cheeseburger, I want a bona fide cheeseburger that is nice and juicy, not a dried out one that was obviously a... More

I'll admit, I've only eaten here once, but it was so greasy I have no desire to go back. Everyone likes a good burger now and then, so we went here to give it a try. It seemed to be fairly popular so we figured it would be alright. I was disappointed. My burger was so greasy it was running... More

A friend had told me Meatheads had a lettuce burger and fries that were gluten free and safe from cross contamination so decided to try it. I have celiac disease so it is important that I avoid the cross contamination as I am very sensitive to it. It was a very good experience eating there. I thought the food was... More

The hamburgers, hot dogs, blts and Cajun fries are all amazing. Don't forget the bacon ranch! This is a place that you order at the counter and they bring the food out to you. Great to go for lunch or a quick dinner. It is best if you eat in as it he place is not roomy and it is... More
