Great Burgers!!

This was my first time at Newt's and I was totally impressed. I was in Rochester with a co-worker getting supplies for our business and she suggested we go there for lunch. From the minute we walked in the door till the bill came, it was a great experience. I had a Patty Melt and it was one of... read more

We visited from central MN after a long days work. The food is consistently excellent, service exceptional and atmosphere fun. Despite the fear of no parking - all the times we have stopped one just happens to free up when we are driving around. Love this restaurant!!!

Went to lunch at Newt's with my wife. The food was mediocre, and that's being generous. The service was bad, that's also being generous. Had to wait 10mns after done eating for our waitress to come back to our table and ask if we we were done. Other tables sitting around us were doing the same waiting game. I can... More

Not only do they have a menu that lets you basically make your own burger, they have great service! I have stopped at a Newt's location each time I'm in Rochester. Thank goodness for the North location and just noticed that they are constructing a South location!! The downtown location isn't handicapped accessible but the others are. This is one... More

Newt's is Rochester's best burger joint and it's locally owned. I love that they opened up a North location. It's just a few minutes from our house. The atmosphere is fun. We enjoy Newt's for date night and dinner with friends. Ironically, my favorite item is Dani's Mad Daffy Burger which is actually a chicken patty. The chicken strips, pretty... More

I've eaten here twice on visits to Rochester. The first time we all ordered burgers and they were cooked to order. They were good and tasty but medium was a bit too pink for my liking. Everybody else loved the. Last visit, I ordered the taco salad. It too was good and way too big for me to finish. The... More

Had another great visit to Newt's. Food is always delicious and done right. Table service excellent, very friendly and helpful. Host staff leaves somethng to be desired, but I can get over that as the food is just so good.

Always a consistently great place to get a burger and a beer. Staff actually seems to enjoy themselves while working, you don`t always get that. Eventually I am going to have to try another burger, I am stuck on ordering the Marvin Burger every time. Always busy but they can handle it. Great spot for both the locals as well... More

After a particularly frustrating day of work for my wife, she and I decided to leave the kids at home and go for a few drinks and a meal. Even though it was quite busy for a Wednesday night, they got us to an open place at the bar for a a drink (I had a Summit tap, my wonderful... More
