Favorite place in Lawrence!

This would have to be my favorite place in Lawrence. Everything about it is good, from the burgers (although I only get the chicken burger, which I highly recommend) to any of their types of fries to any of the sauces they make. It is usually packed but it is very much worth the wait. I have never... read more

Don't let the worn furniture, the quirky interior or the tavern feel put you off. The food is delicious! Voted best burger in Lawrence for the past 4 years, and worth the gourmet burger price tag. I like the barnyard bash (chicken) sandwich and fries with one of each of the dipping sauces like Marshmallow, Spicy Aoili Ketchup,Guinness Mustard and... More

We went for brunch. The list of choices was small but I enjoyed what I got. Prices seemed slightly high for what you got, especially for what seemed like a one egg side add-on.

Absolutely great real, home-made burger with really great sides and real sauces. Take a minute to read the menu....and share the fries....both kinds...sweet and regular....taste the different sauces. Did I say....really Great burger!

This is the best place to go for burgers and fries. They have a wide variety of burgers and fries, and they always have different specials. You can be a vegetarian and eat well here, as they offer a number of different veggie burgers. My favorite thing to get here is the Romesco burger with truffle fries. They also have... More

I love the Burger Stand, absolutely love it. The burgers are great, the corn dog is AMAZING, and the adult/non-adult milkshakes (yes adult milkshakes!!!) are really delicious too. Add in the truffle fries and all the dipping sauces and you have one hell of a restaurant. They also have lots of vegetarian options too like Quinoa hot dogs. They are... More

Here one can find lots of different burgers, toppings and sauces but the ones we ordered were not cooked with care. In spite of the many accoutrements the blue- cheese burger was dry and tasteless. The chicken burger was fried to death and equally disappointing. The duck-fat fries were interesting as were the sweet potato fries seasoned with sugar and... More

There is nothing better than a Tank 7 with Duck Fat fries at The Burger Stand on Mass St in Lawrence. If you desire richer fries, perhaps the truffle fries are for you. Outstanding burgers, along with veggie burgers as well.
