Hot Mess Burger & Chili

I ordered the Hot Mess Burger with gluten-free bun. The Hot Mess comes with diced pickles, thousand island dressing, sweet potato fries, bacon, lettuce (the menu states the burger includes red onion but I asked them to omit this from the burger). I requested medium-well. The only minor-step was... read more

YES, we saw the Diners, drive-ins, and dives episode, hence the reason why we decided to check out what was supposedly a top spot for burgers in the Boston area. The four of us left unimpressed, disappointed, and looking for better. BURGERS .. dry, FRENCH FRIES...soggy... SERVICE uninspired, and lacked motivation..they didnt have to be, the wait alone was 45... More

Boston Burger Company had the best selection of burgers I've ever seen in my life. The menu literally has over 28 burgers to choose from. AND if none of those sound good (very unlikely) they also have a "Build Your Own Burger" menu that allows you to choose which exact toppings you would like. The selection of cheese, veggies, sauces,... More

I decided to check this place out for lunch the other day with a guy from work and the burgers were great. I got the All-American & he got the Waikiki burger which were both very tasty. All the burgers come with homemade chips and an order of beans or coleslaw. I got the coleslaw which was very good. Fries... More

We waited about 20 mins on the square on a Saturday for lunch, and it was clearly worth the wait for these burgers. Fries are good, but all sandwiches come with house made chips. There are salads on the menu, but quite honestly, why?

Sometimes you need a napkin with your juicy hamburger. I went for their 1 ponder and went through 6! It was cooked perfectly. I shall return.

Mac and cheese burger and the sweet potato fries with the caramel sauce! Go now! If I lived there I would weigh 3000 pounds!

Great burger place with outdoor seating right in the middle of Davis Square. Huge selection of burgers, including my favorite ' THE KING | peanut butter, bacon and fried bananas dusted in cinnamon and sugar. I dare you to try it and not have it change your life. Also, great beers on tap and tons of awesome people watching in... More
