3 rooms provide an atmosphere for everyone at Burger Barge II. Tastes like they're cooked on a grill.

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.

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 :)
