Outstanding Burgers!

If you're looking for spectacular bar food & some pool table this is your joint. The burgers are hands down the best in town...but bring cash, these guys don't take plastic!

These slider-like burgers cooked right behind bar are so amazing! They do not serve French fries. I personally like w a burger. I haven't eaten anything thing else on menu (pretty basic) burgers are worth the trip and the price though!. Place to play pool. Beer selection isn't very good, but if you aren't too picky then you'll suffice. They... More

Booche's hasn't changed much since the 1940s, from the floors that were probably old then to the small grill that still sells hamburgers and chili in the style of that time. It was then, and is now a pool hall/bar. It is a popular spot for locals and a nice experience. Don't look for "ambience" here but it certainly has... More

Every aspect of having a burger at Booches is a pleasure. From the size of the burger, the way it 's served and the simple cash at the end, I find it satisfying every time. The atmosphere couldn't be more sincere. The simple order of a burger is pleasant. It is served in a refreshing minimal fashion that I truly... More

If you want to shoot some pool, have a drink and eat a great burger...this is the place. Long on tradition in the community and very good "eats", Booches is the place.

This place is a grand-slam. VERY limited menu. The burgers are what people come here for though. Think smaller than a normal burger, but slightly larger than a normal slider. 2 of these is fine for lunch, maybe even 1 for some people - 3 is a good dinner if you're hungry. They'll do grilled onions if you ask, but... More

When you're talking burgers in Columbia, Missouri, chances are you're talking about Booches. Known for really good cheeseburgers. Grease dribbling down your chin good. I'm willing to put these up against any challenger. However, there are no fries (chips only), no microbrews (they sell lots of Stag though), no credit cards (cash only) and no parking (downtown Columbia meter parking... More
