The place in located by the riverboat casino in the East Peoria area. Hard to spot from the road. Has that "other side of the tracks" feel to it. Place looks like a seaside dive. Lots of graffiti and tablecloth art all over. They have their own small dock for parking boats but somewhat small. The great burgers are their... More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner on our way to Bowling Green, Kentucky. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but they have a great outdoor deck and patio on the sand. We ate on the patio. We were there at the right time to enjoy a wonderful sunset. The Burgers are delicious and the Beer was... More

we had lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The view of the river and Peoria from their back deck is cool. The food was good, lots of burger options and fried appetizer type options. The service was great. It was nice seeing boats and jet skis pulling into their dock to grab a bite while monster barges went up and down... More

The Burger Barge on the River is a local institution and offers the best burgers in the area along with homemade fries and sweet potato fries. Eat outside with a view of the river and fresh air. This place is about the food, don't expect a pristine atmosphere. Casual, good service and great burgers!

It's a burger joint! And great burgers too. Love the chips....homemade potato chips. Huge portions and eclectic environment. BB 2 is kind of an amusement park too. Lots of fun. I'll have to try the Bloody Mary bar next time :)

We went to the east side location not knowing that the original is actually on the IL river, but I'm glad we did as several others ended up at the river site and were not as pleased. Fun atmosphere, menu is lengthy but well worth looking over as everything we got to eat was excellent!! Our waitress was the bomb,... More

Great place for lunch or dinner if you want laid back "atmosphere". On the river with a rustic crude sort of vibe, but a fun place to hang out with friends and family. Very casual, but they have great hamburgers (wide menu choice) and wonderful homemade chips. Would recommend to anyone. Don't go if you only like neat and new... More

Burger Barge on the river has long been a local staple. The new 7000 square foot Burger Barge 2 is delightful. There are 3 separate themed restaurants under one roof. The food is always great and priced reasonably.
