Excellent burgers!

Definitely one of the better burger spots around. The service is good and the floor-to-ceiling front windows open for an al fresco dining experience. Best of all, there is an extensive menu of burgers, apps and alcohol and non-alcohol beverage choices.

All right, we were there on graduation weekend and the Music on the Porch festival, so there was a very, very long wait. We were given a radio controlled buzzer so we could wander the square outside while waiting for our table. But the food and service made the whole experience very worthwhile. The space is nothing special, but our... More

While in Massachusetts, we decided to try some of the restaurants that Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives had visited. The Boston Burger Company offers every kind of burger you can imagine. Examples: I had the Waikiki burger (bacon, ham, pineapple, and teriyaki sauce); my daughter had the 420 burger (mozzarella sticks, mac n cheese bites, an onion ring,... More

Boston Burgers has become one of my fiance and my favorite places to eat in davis square. We are never disappointed with our burger choices, and we both switch around frequently. We always make sure to bring our visitors here as some of the burger choices you would only believe it if you saw it ( hello 420 burger, or... More

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.

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.
