I love diners and dive bars. This was two rolled into one. At lunch you have a choice of about 22 burger combinations and one side for $6.99....on and don't forget the $1.00 margaritas! Everyone at our table enjoyed their burgers. Very big! I couldn't even finish mine. Don't expect anything fancy. The burgers and fries are served on serving... More

I have never seen such filth at a restaurant. The floors were filthy, the bathroom was a mess and the cook kept touching his nose, face and cooking at the same time. No hand washing was seen. Nope, won't be back.

Even though the place was packed, we were able to get a table for two. The place was filled with ball teams. Service was good, and the food was great.

A plethora of hamburger choices as well as other entrees, po boy sandwiches, fried fish, chicken, etc. Not the best food for its type I have ever eaten, but a fun atmosphere and good service. It's definitely worth the experience.

I've been wanting to try the Burger Barge, having heard about it a few times. I'm glad I went. The building is unique with nautical themes and that's carried into the menu. Some of the dish names are hilarious. My patty melt was good. I'll certainly return to try something else.

We went to the newer location on Meadows. LOVED the beach room. Great atmosphere on a chilly day. We loved the burgers! The Philly steak burger and the Mooshroom. I am not a big burger person but I really liked these! The onion rings were okay. The waitress was super nice. We will be going back!

The first time I had a burger here it was very good: well-seasoned, thinner with crispy edges & not greasy. This last time, it was a total disappointment: no seasoning, thick with a lot of juice/grease & very little sauce/toppings. Won't be ordering the burgers again anytime soon.
