Bosts a long history. Current management should be ashamed of proud history as touted on placement. Not so busy Tuesday night. Server indifferent; acted like she was doing us a favor. 1/2 order onion rings as good as ever; generous portiin, crisp and hot. Bottled beer cold but bottle dirty; i like to drink from bottle as beer remains colder... More

In the summer they have a cute garden area. If you are a couple sit by the entrance where it's quieter, if you have kids ask to sit by the garden house. Your kids can play in the house while you enjoy the lovely greenery. The inside resturant is small. There are garden door that overlook a small garden and... More

We ate here as a group with a private room. Busy Sat. Night. When it was discovered one of our group could not manage the stairs, the owner found accommodations for 16 of us outside. I cannot commend them enough for their service. The food was excellent. Their signature burgers and string onion rings are worth the trip alone!

I go here during the summer to hang out on their patio and have a meal. I have been coming here for over 40 years and have noticed that their brick of onions are shrinking while the price continues to grow. At least they haven't changed the size of their burger and unlimited fries. I take my 90 year old... More

Honestly the BEST and FIRST Basket or loaf of Onion rings, now it varying sizes. Very Old Family operation and small chain. Everything is awesome and best burger around for my money. Great Beer Selection. The Patio triples seating in the summer and is off street like your back yard setting. Always Always busy.

The food at this Hackneys is consistently good. Prices are reasonable and menu is nicely varied as well. But service felt rushed even though no one waiting for tables. Server trying to be too efficient?

I have been coming here since I was a young teenager.....forty years ago. This has been a super consistent place for a great burger on homemade dark rye bread accompanied by the onion loaf. When I return to the area I make sure to stop with my husband and kids. Recommend it highly!

I recently had lunch here, and the food was better than ever. My friend and I had the Hackneyburger on dark rye, and the half-loaf of onion rings. Yum! I've literally been coming to this restaurant for 60+ years, and I would swear that the carpet has not been cleaned in all that time. Come on, Hackney's. Put some of... More

A group of colleagues meet for lunch to celebrate the retirement of a colleague. The place does not take table reservation so we were advised to arrive early so we could have a table at the outdoor garden. The wait staff was friendly and the service was quick. The block of onion rings were delicious. I ordered the burger with... More
