It's OK burgers burgers for an OK price. It's exactly what you'd expect for a mall chain. OK for an impulse burger, not worth driving to specifically.

I've been meaning to visit BGR - The Burger Joint in my previous several trips to Bethesda, and finally had the opportunity to do so. I wasn't sure if this was a full-service restaurant, but knew that it served burgers and beer (what else do you need)? The menu offers fare you'd find in similar hamburger chains (5 Guys, Meatheads,... More

You have to place your order at the front and then wait for them to prepare it and then pick it up. Not a fancy place, but great burgers!

An excellent burger. Highly recommended. For those who love very spicy food, get the "spice it up" option!

Great place to cure that burger craving. Sometimes a little poor on the service, but then this is not really a sit down restaurant.

My father and I were looking for something different, and I happened to find this Burger Joint location online. The menu looked interesting and we decided to try it. The location itself average and the atmosphere is that of a fast food resturant with and `80's theme which is at least intersting. The burgers, however are very tastey and fresh.... More

We love the burgers and have tried the regular burger, tuna burger, and lamb burger. They are always prepared as ordered and very juicy. The French fries are excellent, too. The restaurant fills up and you may have a slight wait for a table.

The Baileys and cream shake was probably the among the five best milkshakes I've ever had! The burger was top notch rivaling those you might order in a good steakhouse. It was over $30 for two people to dine, but the food was good enough to bring us back.

This place is good for takeout or dining in. Fun for groups. My favorite is the regular beef burger w mojo sauce plus an order of fries. They have huge onion rings and a tuna burger that's good, too. One nitpick--GPS seems to have a tough time giving correct directions. I think the street address and business address are different.
