Long-time Rockville (NOT Bethesda) standard, it is now closed. Entire chain filed for bankruptcy in December 2012 and this location is now closed.

We stopped by on the way to a WV hiking and was disappointing twice. In the last time I orderered a California Market Salad and for me it tasted like a bad dessert because was too sweet and too heavily dressed. See the photo and you will see what a salad shouldn't be. The ambiance is regular with families and... More

Partnering with DuPars was a mistake. The menu has lost some old favorites and the additions don't really add anything. Prices are too high and the food is only so-so. Used to love this place but now it's nothing special.

First visit to Hamburger Hamlet and really enjoyed it. Prices are reasonable considering the area where it's located. Although I didn't order anything their bakery had some delicious looking deserts. A very large selection on the menu and really liked they offer breakfast!

Great service. Open 24 hrs and food was really good. Love the international servers from different parts of the world. Enjoyed talking to staff as they were very diverse and helpful.

Good was pretty good, prices, atmosphere, and service were ok. But nothing made me say, "We've GOT to come here to eat again!"

Every summer, it's the same old story...no air-conditioning in the bar area. I had hoped since Hamburger Hamlet was under new management (Dupar's), the air-conditioning would be repaired/replaced. No such luck. I think the food is less appealing since the menu has changed. I used to love the potstickers on the appetizer menu. They are gone. Now the appetizer menu... More

In keeping with my usual practice of not rating a place on just one visit, I have been here 3 times over several months. What I got was consistent on all three visits. The food here is just not top quality and can be very hit or miss. The meatloaf I had on the last visit was obviously at or... More

Had higher expectations for this place. The burgers were ok, and the combinations of toppings were interesting, but the bread was old and dry and flaked apart. The fries weren't anything special. I think they were going for a gourmet burger but missed the basics. The service was mediocre at best. If you're looking for a good burger, keep looking.

I used to come here all the time with my son and his middle school friends, and the place was a favorite for hamburgers. There's been a management change since those days. The menu's still eclectic...filled with a wide range of comfort foods in addition to burgers, just as before. My salad (California Market) had too much dressing and too... More
