Decent burgers

Decent burgers. Hand formed patties. Very good shakes. Order at the counter and then table service. Accommodating for families.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and there was not a ton of places to eat so we wondered into Meatheads. My wife and I both got a burger and shared some fries. Loved the fries!! Burger was not bad and they were generous with toppings. Not bad atmosphere and it was well maintained and clean.

Overpriced, but maybe because of location. Food not what I expected. I prefer charbroiled burgers. Once was enough for my liking

Had a great lunch there. Busy but the food was excellent. Enjoyed the food and the amount fries in an order was enough for 2 people.

Good menu choices and the burger was great! Fries were good too, including the unique Chipotle and Jalapeno ketchups! Also, they don't advertise it, but you can buy a fun Meatheads shirt for less than $10! Cool souvenir!

This is kind of a fast-casual type of restaurant. You walk in and order your chicken sandwich or burger with fries, then they deliver it to your table. The food is very good and the portions are large.

Hands down the best fries in Northbrook! Order the regular fries and use the Cajun seasoning shaker to control the amount of heat. The $2 size is large enough to share. The mocha shake is fabulous, but they also have two of those touch-screen soda dispensers that give you a gazillion choices. And if you hurry, you can take advantage... More

A small chain that, I believe, doesn't have any outlets outside the Midwest, this was a first time experience for me. I must say that they lift the experience of a basic burger and fries to a new level - order at the counter but brought to the table, my burger was freshly cooked for me with exactly the toppings...

A combination of Chipotle and Five Guys. Clean and very friendly like the best Chipotle locations and burgers similar to but much better than Five Guys. The food is fresh, there is a choice of cheeses (including Swiss, cheddar, American, and pepper jack), toppings (a la Five Guys), and a wonderful grilled chicken sandwich that was done perfectly every time...
