Not bad at all

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... read more

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.

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

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!
