If you're craving a delicious burger and fries, Honest Abe's is a great place to satisfy your hunger. Their portobello mushroom burger is among the best I have had. The menu changes seasonally, so it's fun to go back and try new recipes!

On a recommendation we tried Honest Abe's. We will definitely be back. Would not have picked this place from driving by. Excellent burgers.

My daughter and I decided to try Honest Abes awhile back and the reviews that have been posted are very accurate. The place is small, not a lot of seating but while we waited for our food people kept streaming through the door. We took our to go but I heard that you can have it delivered to the bar... More

This place is tiny, but full of character. And their burgers are sinfully good. I LOVE the buns here, and I am one of those people who rarely enjoy carb...really, I often remove the top bun off the hamburger because the buns are usually my least favorite part. Between their wonderful buns, you will find combinations of interesting and flavorful... More

This is one of those little places that have great food. It is in a strip mall. The chef has put together an unusual combination of ingredients for burgers and they are extremely good. I recommend any of the burgers, but like the Aphrodite best. The parmesan truffle fries are a treat.

The burgers are creative and delicious. I also enjoyed the parmesan fries. It was a very filling meal and the taste did not disappoint. Whenever I'm in the mood for a burger again, Honest Abe's will be a top contender. The joint is small and doesn't provide a lot of atmosphere but the service is good.

Abe’s is kind of a hole-in-the-strip-mall place that serves gourmet-style burgers and fries. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a limited menu of burgers posted on the wall and a special burger or two, but they will accommodate any special requests (like “no mayo”). Place your order at the counter, and they will call your name when... More

The burgers at this place are pretty good, but I felt for what you get, it was over priced. If the $8 or more dollars you pay included the fries or a drink, it would be worth it. The service is great, but the restaurant is way too small and we couldn't find seating indoors which was a bit disappointing.... More

We got a couple burger meals from here. They were good burgers, but not worth all the hype. Their parmesan fries were pretty good.

Been wanting to get up here for some time and was not disappointed! Had the "best burger ever" and Parmesan fries. Small location but food was very fresh and very original burgers!
