NIce little hole in the wall lunch spot.

Nothing special abut Harmon's lunch other than it's all cash, burgers are small so if you have a hearty appetite get 2 or 3. Burgers are good, fries are great (fresh cut, not frozen) and served with vinegar. Yum. Parking can be a challenge. Staff very pleasant. Get a loaded burger or two and put an... read more

This place is what it is......an old hamburger shack, known for its loaded cheese burger that's still under $3!! Red relish and fried onions are what make them great little burgers. Also try the fresh-battered onion rings. Friendly folks, old style atmosphere and oddly crave-able food!

I have driven by Harmon's Lunch for years. It is usually packed so I finally got the chance to stop in and see what all the hoopla was about. They offer a very simple menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, onion rings, ice cream and shakes. Beware they are a CASH only business. I ordered a single hamburger with ketchup... More

Fortunately we live near Harmon's. It's not just a burger they produce, it's an artifact. Many articles have been written about this legendary roadside attraction! They still use one griddle and one person doing the cooking. Their secret may be the sweet pepper relish or the fried onions that smother the burger.

Harmon's has been around for more than 50 years...and the food is just as good as when Mr. Harmon was cooking. The burgers are so very tasty...get them loaded,,,mustard,relish,and cooked onion. Add a bit of celery salt and you are eating them like a real Mainer. The hot dogs are also very good. They now have French fries but I... More

Harmon's has been around forever...small inside, with counter seating, but in nicer weather there are lots of picnic tables all around ouside. They have the best hamburgers/cheeseburgers around...a bit on the greasy side, but that's what makes the hamburgers so good...that's what makes it the famous Harmon's. Also known for their sautéed onions and their red relish. Handcut fries...their other... More

Reading the glowing reviews here I went in expecting a lot & I was not disappointed. The hamburgers were tender and tasty, quite different in texture from the chain burgers (which I like too in most cases). The steamed buns were a welcome change from standard grilled versions. The homemade fries and onion rigs were delicious as well. I love... More

Any time my wife and I are near Falmouth at lunchtime, we head for Harmon's, and today was no exception. We love their hamburgers. You can't really compare them with 5 guys or places like that, because the Harmon's version of a burger is completely different. I get the double cheese burger with cooked onions. My wife gets the same,... More

Truly beg to differ with those saying the quality of burgers served is going downhill. These are still the best tasting burgers around as are the fries. YES, the burgers are quite small and YES, this place is definitely on the expensive side. $7.00 for 2 small burgers and a small coke is high. Toss in a small fry and... More
