Great simple burgers

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

Stopped in at Booches for one of their famous burgers and they did not disappoint. Although if you have a large appetite, I'd order two! Remember- closed on Sundays!

We were visiting our daughter and she told us this was a great Columbia tradition, so we gave it a try. I get the cash only thing and as long as you know that going in it's fine. It has a cool old pool-hall kind of vibe and a beautiful old bar. There was a Cardinal game on the tvs,... More

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.

Go for the burgers; they are made-to-order fresh on the grill you can see from your seat. No fries but they do have chips and chili. Be prepared- cash only!

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
