Excellent, somewhat pricey.

Always fresh, always excellent. A little more $ then your average burger joint YET worth every penny. If you are new to Somerville this should be one of your first stops…be sure to add telephone number to your speed dial, you'll thank yourself later.

I loved the burger and all the different kinds of burgers here! Small restaurant, worth the wait for the delicious food.

Loved the build your own burger. Great ingredients. A bit pricy by the time I put everything I wanted on the burger, but huge size of the burger made up for the price. Place seemed small and crowded and noisy but I called ahead to get mine as takeout. It was ready quickly and I will go back.

We were looking for good quality burgers. Our second visit and very happy with the selections of toppings, service and nice juicy burgers. Not crazy about the chips, prefer french fries or sweet potato fries. Bake bean is good. Good price and waitress was very good. Definitely one of the best although our hearts still belong to Wicked Pizza's burgers... More

It's located right across the Davis Sq. T station. Very easy to access location but there are only a few table so the wait almost never shorter than 45 min. It's almost always full.... Lots of different burger types. The taste is OK. The homemade fries are better than burgers.

WOW. My boyfriend and I decided to check this place out for a late lunch the other day and we were blown away at how delicious the food tasted. I got the All-American & he got the Black-Bleu, both had them cooked medium, we split them and I honestly don't know whose was better. The side chips are great, as... More

Visited in March with husband and 14 and 16 year old daughters. We were looking for a place to eat that didn't involve going back into Boston as we were staying in Somerville. Found Boston Burger Company on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Glad we did. Great burgers! We all choose different ones so we could share.... More

While returning from a New England Ambitvip.com expansion training event we heard of a Burger with Macaroni Cheese on it. We heard about a dish called the Pilgrim. A turkey burger with stuffing and cranberry sauce mayo. The clam chowder was wonderful. Parking is not easy but it was worth the trip around the block.

We took our 4 kids out to the Museum of Science and Legoland yesterday and wanted a fun place to take the kids afterwards. After researching restaurants in Sommerville the Boston Burger Company came up after reading the reviews I emailed the restaurant to see if we could make a reservation for 6 of us. I received a quick email... More

We were going to the show at the nearby theater and the question was "where to get dinner"? We picked the Boston Burger Company, which is right across the street from the movie house. We were pretty early about 6pm on Saturday night, and the place was busy but we were able to get a seat within a couple of... More
