If you are looking for a good burger, go to Booches. it is old school - way old school. Been there since the 20's. Small tables, wooden bar stools, pool tables. We order three cheeseburgers for the two of us. No fries here just chips. Bar staff is friendly and the burgers are worth the wait. Made fresh in front... More

It's a pool hall known for serving up the best burgers in town. There isn't a lot of seating and what seating they do have is ALWAYS occupied, so you will have to get there when the doors open to get a seat. However, the food is mouth-wateringly worth it. Thank Jeff Bosaller at the grill. He also makes the... More

Love Booches burgers! This is the best place to get burgers in Columbia Missouri. The atmosphere is a bit rough around the edges in this college town bar, but the burgers are worth it.

If you like visiting those cultural institutions in cities and towns, you won't want to pass up the opportunity to have a burger at Booches. Whether you play pool or not, Booches is a must stop for the history buff and for those interested in meeting a cross section of Columbia residents. On Friday, you can have a bowl of... More

And it was everything I was told it would be. Their burgers remind me of my mother-in-law's burgers and that is high praise. You definitely have to get two burgers. It would only be better if they served fries with the burgers, but chips are alright.

Booches makes the best there is in classical American hamburgers. There is nothing exotic, no fancy frills, just magic. Seems everybody has come up with recopies to improve upon what is the classic delight. With time the grill probably has undergone a special transformation to perfectly grill a great hamburger patty and they put it on a simple non overbearing... More

No better meeting place in Columbia than this iconic eatery. May have to wait for a table - and food is cooked to order so will take a bit - but worth it. Fun and relaxed atmosphere with every generation of collegiate supporters abounding. Order a bloody mary on game day - or anytime. You are welcome.

Love Booches. Great cheeseburger and chips. I've never had anything else so I'm not sure about the rest of the menu, but this is just a fun place, always busy, always great. I go for the "hot" chips which are basically a bag of potato chips covered in hot sauce powder. Made in Fulton Missouri by Backers. Burgers are smallish,... More

Booche's is a Columbia landmark. The burgers take me back to the 50's. Love it! They do cash only, so be prepared.
