Good Burger at Burger Joint

My self proclaimed food snob friend loves this place. The burgers were very tasty -- nice and thick and juicy. Fries were good too. My only issue was that I ordered my burger "bunless" (lettuce wrapped) because I need to eat Gluten Free... and they made it with a bun. I brought it back to the... read more

Had read an awesome article about this place months ago, so I couldn't wait to go there and try some burgers. Went there. Got two plain burgers -- but could hardly eat them from the extremely salty taste, like they were around 50 percent salt. Recently saw the reviews here on TA, and thought I'd take a chance again. Ordered... More

Terrific gourmet made-to-order burgers. My favorite: the cheeseburger sliders, which is the perfect portion size. Many burgers tend to be too filling. Fries are very good but only come in one large size. Kids meals are ample, with choice of two sliders or hot dog with fries and drink. Looking for lo-cal options? Try the Ahi Tuna burger wrapped in... More

It's not summer time without indulging in a great lobster roll and The Burger Joint is the perfect to stop by. I ordered a Lobster Roll and french fries for a late lunch and I must say I was greatly satisfied . The Lobster Roll was served on a hot dog roll with lettuce , coleslaw and a great sauce... More

I can't say anything about the value, since I didn't pay for my burger, but I will say the burger was absolutely delicious. I agree with a previous poster that the veggie burger patty itself was nothing to call home about, but I loaded it up with toppings and spices, so the atty was insignificant in the grand scheme of...

Unless you like cold, dried out rice with a few beans thrown in, avoid the veggie burger. Morningstar are much better.

We saw this restaurant the night before but it was closed. We asked the hotel about it and it was highly recommended. We were not disappointed. This was the best burger I have ever had!

Super friendly clerk screams her greeting to you as you walk in. Walk up to the counter to order and they give you a buzzer to let you know when the order is ready. Our two burgers were really good with a strong smokey flavor, done to perfection, and toppings were really good as well. Would I go back? Maybe... More

I loved my veggie and the fries are the best! The place is really cool. You can choose a table decorated with a picture of your favorite rock band and have the sensation of sharing your burguer with one of the singers :-)

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.
