Booches Rules!!!!!!

I had my first Booches burger 20 years ago. I live in NY but still crave it. I come back every couple of years and make sure to have a bunch of meals here. Staff is all friendly, even the grumpy ones. Clientele is cool and casual.

It's a pool hall that makes hamburgers, average ones at best. It gets voted best burgers frequently but I don't understand why. It think college kids go here after a night of drinking so the greasy burgers soak up the booze. Service has been poor both times I have went also. Not worth the hype.

Best slider burgers you'll eat! Plus being a pool hall, the atmosphere is excellent! Definitely go during football season it will be full of students and people. Worth going!

Don't go to Booche's expecting a fine dining experience -- this is a pool hall with a sign on the wall that means it when it says "No sniveling." That being said, we have always experienced good service without the "flair" found at a typical chain restaurant. The burgers (especially the cheeseburger with everything and grilled onions) are excellent, as... More

I've reviewed this place before, but stopped here one last time before heading out of town for a new area. The wait staff has never been overly friendly, but I've never seen them be rude either. You need to expect that there will be few staff for many tables, and that you're not going to have stellar service here. Just... More

Old school, and I mean OLD, bar/billiard hall. Menu is very limited......burgers, chips, chili, maybe hot dogs. Lunch time during the week is pretty busy. Burgers are small but AMAZING!! Cash only! Several billiard tables and even 1 or 2 snooker tables. Don't screw around with the billiard tables......they take it pretty serious. Definitely a place to check out if... More

Delicious burgers...small, so order more than one. Not fancy, no plates or fries, just burgers and chips. Service wasn't anything to write home about, but food was hole in the wall delicious!

After hearing that this is THE burger place in Columbia I was super disappointed. Greasy, small, expensive and the waiter was so rude. Can't recommend it and won't go back.

Nothing fancy here-just great food. Hamburgers are the best in Columbia. Order more than you think since they are on the small side. The chili cheese dogs are just as awesome.

Simple honest burger, good chili, and what better place to enjoy local atmosphere than in an old pool hall
