I went back to Powers for the first time in over 30 years. Nothing had changed. It's a crowded restaurant with a plain white, worn-out interior. The service was fast and friendly. Although the man behind the counter had no time for idle chit-chat, he kept my coffeecup filled. The cheeseburgers were better than I remember: crumbly piles of beef... More

After twenty years, I forgot how good Powers Hamburgers are. Thank you for not changing anything! Besides the best burgers anywhere, the counter service was friendly and professional.

We went to Power's for the first time today. We sat down at the counter which was nostalgic. The restaurant is clean but very small, perhaps smaller than Coney Island if possible. We sat down and told the server that it was our first time there. She told us about how things work and was very friendly and helpful. I... More

I've been going to Powers for over 50 years, so it's very nostalgic for me. You have to order them with onions and cheese and sit at the counter.

Small spot, so it's best to go during the off hours--not lunch time or dinner time. Most of the staff is friendly and there is a younger that cooks the best burgers. If you love onion's this is the spot for you

A mainstay in Fort Wayne. These are the original small burgers, loaded with onions. Buy six, and they'll be gone before you get home.

The burgers are okay, but they are quite small for the price you pay, and there is really more onion between the buns than hamburger. They do not offer fries as a side dish, only potato chips and thin chili. For a much better burger and much better value, drive a few miles down the road to Five Guys.

This is a little hole in the wall. Although I wouldn't rate it as a Best Burger joint, I'd rate it high as an "experience". Loved the abundant grilled onions on the grilled sliders; the desserts looked fantastic. The people that came in were "characters" that truly fit into the locale and the ambiance. We enjoyed the food and the... More

The menu is basic and the handmade sliders are great. Was out the door with a full stomach and satisfied taste buds for under $10. Most of the people in there when I was there were regulars who were all on a first-name basis.
