Basketball fans: This is the place for burgers

Years ago, when I asked an old-time friend to recommend the best places to eat in Peoria, he didn't hesitate to name two--Jim's Steakhouse in downtown Peoria and Burger Barge on the riverfront in East Peoria. The two dining establishments couldn't be more different, like night and day. If you want... read more

My trip to the Burger Barge was nothing less than Spectacular! Very simple, yet fun atmosphere. The portion size was very ample, and the price was very reasonable. The burgers where made to order, and very good. Everyone at my table raved about how great their meal was, and quickly planned on visiting again for dinner. Great experience, dont expect... More

This was by far one of the best burgers I have ever had. I ordered the Moo Shroom which had a lightly breaded portabella mushroom on top of the burger. I swear my belly button was smiling! They have so many different burgers to choose from for us adventurous eaters. Their menu is available on their website so you can... More

this was my second time to this place. It was packed so food came out a little slow, but worth the wait. All kinds of burgers and beers with lots of stuff (like hand drawn napkin art) stapled to the wall, funny signs and make shift tables and chairs. Really worth the trip for a good tasting burger in a... More

Lil dirty but totally delish! Cheeseburger in Paradise has nothing on the Burger Barge when it comes to flavor. Best lil dive in Central IL. Totally worth a stop. Good food and great price

Hanging above my head was a stuffed flamingo covered in cobwebs and spider egg sacks. Next table over had a window sill covered in cobwebs. The floors were just plain gross. Our glasses looked dirty. In spite of this, they do make a tasty burger. I won't be back.
