Burgers and coney dog were really great. Smaller size burgers so get two. Super friendly staff. Definitely will go back. A real find.

Better like grilled onions, cause these bits of heaven are all about them. These burgers are amazing, and the 1930s setting makes it better.

Powers has been here for-ever! If you visit Fort Wayne you have to stop by Powers. Little hamburgers with mounds of sauteed onions piled on top. Wow! Good! Buy two or three with some fries and make a meal. It might not look like much on the outside, but it's still great on the inside. Go there.

McDonald's for instance gets a shade under 2 ounces of meat for a standard hamburger(about 8 to the pound). Their McDouble fluxuates between a dollar and a dollar and 39 cents between restaurants and specials. Powers hamburgers are barely an ounce and easily make about 16 to the pound of hamburger. It's hard to justify then the cost of a... More

Sketchy on outside .. Loveable on inside. A must visit for the novelty burgers and the throwback style. The onions taste awesome. Just be aware the smell will stay w you.

If you like small hamburgers or cheeseburgers, specifically in the same food-class as White Castle, you will LOVE powers hamburgers. They're 10x better and more flavorful but still have the same small-sandwich charm as what the chain restaurant has to offer. Note:if you don't like onions, be sure to order without. They LOAD them on. If you do like onions,... More

I stop here every time I get to Fort Wayne. Are these gourmet? No. They are two bite explosions of fatty flavor. Get three with a bowl of chilli and a Pepsi. Do not get them to go it will take weeks to get the aroma out of your car.

I grew up going to Powers Hamburgers. They are tiny burgers with grilled onions. They are so delicious! I remember going there in High School and my male friends would try to eat a burger in one bite. It was fun to watch. :-) There isn't a lot of space in the restaurant, mostly counters with twirly stools, but it... More
