Burger shack

This is 100% a burger shack. The only thing that's green that goes on your burger here is a pickle. No lettuce, no tomato, and a few toppings. The burger meat is excellent. Cooked on a flat top with good crispness. The fries are cooked fresh, little thicker than shoestring, and are quite good. You... read more

We went to Gross’ Hamburger joint last night. There were four adults. We ate and drank until we were stuffed and the bill was $24. What a deal! If you like your burgers cooked on a flat top grill with a nice crusty outside and no grease, this is the place for you. This is a simple burger with a... More

Wanted to get lunch on our way to UIUC and stopped here based on TA reviews. Not too far off of I74, not much parking or indoor seating. Got there around 1130 AM, so no wait to order or for a table. Burger was very good with just mustard, ketchup and onions. Fries were great and we split an order,... More

Stopped at Gross' Burgers in mid-afternoon on my way into Danville, on the advice of on-line reviewers. I was greeted promptly & cordially by the girl at the counter, and the entire food prep and service team was friendly & enthusiastic. My single cheeseburger was very tasty, better than the current era's Steak 'n Shake burger of similar size and... More

Gross' marine themed restaurant is a one of a kind. Place is always packed and for good reason. I think this is the best restaurant to recommend for out of towners. I get either the triple american or a pizza burger. Fries are sprinkled with garlic and salt and are awesome. Shakes are great to. A very busy place so... More

It took a lot of research but a statewide survey by an enterprising journalist and food critic determined that Gross' Burgers in Danville produces one of the best burgers in Illinois. Gross' Burgers has been in business at 25 Henderson Street since 1982 but how many people outside Danville knew about the quality of their burgers until that survey was... More

We recently tried Gross' burgers on advice from Trip Advisor and a friend. We were not disappointed. Judging from the overflow parking lot, it probably gets crowded at times. We were there at 3:30 so that wasn't an issue. I had a double cheeseburger and a massive order of fries and it was just under $5.00. The burger was cooked... More

Grossburgers is a great place to eat if you just want a simple burger and fries. The fries are really really good and they give you enough for two people. They're pretty quick fixing your order and are pretty friendly. I don't however,like the fact that you can't order from the window. The pizza burgers are messy good, also.

Gross' Burgers is a small restaurant a few minutes south of Danville. Their burgers are tremendous - you should try the pizza burgers. Garlic-salt fries are great as well. The only drawback from me is they don't offer lettuce or tomato on their burgers - BUT - I still go there!
