Quick and friendly

We stopped here for a burger. Was told they had great burgers. We were not disappointed. We were a table of 7. The staff was very friendly and our food was quick. We would definitely stop again when we are in the area.

Honestly, Rochester lives and dies by Newt's burgers. I am not really sure exactly how this happened considering they are really quite often average or less than average burgers. They don't even taste like they are hand pattied which you would think would be a natural way of doing things if you are known for burgers... The burgers are often... More

Later evening stop for burgers with average service and food. Mushroom and Swiss burger okay, not real juicy. Service average and cost a bit high for no frill burgers, a few toppings would be nice.

It had been a couple years since I was at Newt's North. We were seated quickly and our waitress came and got our drink orders. They have a nice selection of beers on tap. My wife and I each had burgers, a Juicy Lucy for me, and a Mushroom Swiss for my wife. They were both cooked right as ordered.... More

Hungry for a good burger?, choose this place, it will not disappoint. Sorry to the restaurant, but you should skip any appetizers and fries cause you will want to finish the burger you choose. Great cold beers to go along with it, and tasty popcorn leads to the perfect bar/burger combination

Best hamburger bun I've ever had. It's always crowded (which is a good sign)! Staff was good, but the food outshines it all.

Anytime we are in the Rochester area, we try to make Newts a stop. Waitress was super friendly and the burger was excellent! Asked for the burger to be medium rare...was perfectly cooked. Can't wait to go back!

Sat at the bar for dinner. Bartenders were very attentive and running - they would always upwell another beverage or make the assumption you might have "just one more". They were voted the best burgers in 2003, but I had their burger and I didn't feel it was the BEST - I have had better, even though these are good.... More

Stopped in for lunch and had their Marvin's burger. Really good beef, excellent flavors, burgers are cooked very nicely. Soft, airy bun that lets you get to the burger. Fries were awesome - just the right crisp to them. Had some cheese curds which were slightly greasy, but the curd and batter were delicious. Good service. Plenty of tables and... More
