This place is one of many upscale burger places that has invaded Bethesda in the last couple of years. The burgers are excellent, rich and cooked to you specifications. They are very expensive. I'll leave it to you to determine if they are worth it.

Really enjoy their veggie burgers! They're not pre-made Boca or Morningstar burgers that a lot of places serve. These are really delish. Service here isn't the greatest though. I've been there a few times during the lunch hour and have always had issues.

There are just certain days when I really want a burger and onion rings - and there are not a lot of places that have good onion rings as well as a good burger. BGR in Bethesda is the spot - great food and for some reason the decor makes me feel like I'm back in high school having a... More

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
