You've got to try Booches

Booches is a great place to go if you don't need something fancy. Very limited menu, and the only "real" utensils are spoons for the chili. Burgers are served on Waxed paper..that's all you need. These burgers are moist and juicy and made to order. There are no fries...only bagged chips. This is a... read more

To start with their burgers...they are small so you will have to eat more than one. They are are not served on a plate but a greasy wax paper square. The extra grease seems to come from them slow cooking their burger. I feel this is a disavantage because I like a good sear on my burger. Lastly no fries......

So, went onto Tripadvisor and everyone said to go here.... did that... had the hamburgers and chili for lunch.... the burgers were tiny, a little bigger than sliders and when asked if they could warm up the chili they said they could not, do not have a microwave. Burgers tasted good, NOT THE BEST IN COLUMBIA THOUGH~I can promise that... More

I am literally sitting here making this review. These Booche burgers are so good. I could probably eat 8 of them. Great experience! Just fantastic.

Simple food done just right. Order a couple burgers... quality meat, good veggies on it and a bag of chips. That's all you need. Chili rocks too.

I have to confess, I went to school at Mizzou for seven years and have lived here as a professional for the last two years and have only recently been to Booches for the second time, but it hasn't been due to lack of quality! Mostly, it's because they have such a solid reputation and I usually expect to wait... More

Great family bar experience with a menu that will take you back to a time when families would walk to the neighborhood "Tavern" to enjoy a night out. Booches Billard Hall is no different. If you go there expecting "fine" dining with a wait staff that will is handing out warm fuzzies, then this isn't for you, but if you... More

I have been going here since 1981. My two sons were 3 & 5. Even though it is also a pool hall and bar It's burgers were small but great. They served them on wax paper. They also have great chili. All their food is simple. We went almost every Saturday.
