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

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this after a night walking about Davis. We split the 420 burger which was topped with mozzarella sticks, onion rings, mac and cheese bite, french fries, and bbq sauce. We were absolutely stuffed and pleased. It has a small, warm environment with friendly staff. We already went back to enjoy it again!

We started our meal with Parmeasean garlic fries that were incredible. I had the plain Boston burger with cheese and my husband had the King Burger with peanut butter and fried bananas. My son had a BBQ chicken sandwich. All were excellent and accompanied by house made chips and slaw. I wanted to order more fries for dessert but I... More

Boston Burgers is an upscale burger eatery in Davis Square in Somerville right next to Tufts University. It is a small but fun place to take in. The atmosphere is usually pretty busy. The menu features an extended array of sandwich items as well as the expected lengthy list of burger variations. The cooking method is on a grill as... More

I haven't been wowed at all. A burger company should have awesome burgers; these are just okay. Again, only in the 3 times I've been there. Definitely edible and close to tasty but nothing to write to anyone about. There are many burger restaurants in Boston that I do walk out saying wow, that was really good. Here, we walk... More

Visited recently and had a great time! I say it's easy to find, meaning it's right outside the train station, but it was a bit difficult to locate because the sign is small. But, what a great dinner we had! We had the Mac Attack and Kitchen Sink and both were awesome tasting. Great meat, wonderful fillings/toppings, and very nice... More

If you can dream it, Boston Burger Company can make it. I haven't tried all of their burgers (That is on my bucket list) but some of my top ones are: The Hot Mess, The Killer Bee and the Mac Attack. These burgers are unique, delicious and over the top. Do you like fried pickles? Get them for an appetizer,... More

Stopped here last night on the way home from our day filled with Derek Jeter retirement memories. Food and service was great as always
