Great burger

This hamburger place in terminal C serves up some real great nononsense burgers. Juicy tender burgers. I am coming back for more. This is part of the food court, lots of hustle and bustle but for a quick meal on the run something got to give.

I did like the burger but it wasn't worth the walk way over to that end of terminal C (near gate C-124). The classic smash burger was fresh and tasty, but the fries were a disappointment-- very greasy and certainly not hand-cut from fresh potatoes. Check your bill as I was charged for two orders of fries even though I... More

Having to wait around for 5 hours at Newark Airport we had enough time to walk around and came across this burger place which looked very clean and a lot of the aircrews were ordering food there which we thought was a good sign. We had a beefburger and chicken burger and both looked and tasted very good. The smash... More

It's hard to screw up a hamburger. This place has good ones, not huge, but enough to fill a void. One of the cheapest meals we have had in a airport. 2 burgers and a fry for $14.00. Service was not fast, but what's your hurry, you got time to kill. They salt the burgers, so ask for no salt!

This is a very pleasant surprise in Terminal C with fresh and hot burgers at an okay price. Loved the meat and fixings

The truffle mushroom swiss burger was good to the last bite, just as good as I recall having in a regular (non-airport) restaurant in Denver. Burger was juicy and succulent without too much fatty juices. They pack the burger in a plastic clamshell (versus the typical burger wrapper/foil), which was helpful in keeping the juices dripping all over the place... More

Rarely can you find decent food in an airport... But the mushroom swiss truffle burger (with beef) is fabulous! Tastes like I'm at a restaurant.

From reviews, perhaps my experience was an anomaly, but while the burger was delish and the shake divine (I seriously wanted to lick the paper cup clean) the service and attitude of the staff was some of the worst I've ever experienced. To start with, the soda machines weren't functioning--huh... Could you post some signs stating that, please?-- the help... More

So surprised to get such a great burger in an airport..I ordered a bacon cheeseburger which was super tasty. Could have used more bacon but that is true for anything (never enough meat candy). Bun was really soft, meat so cooked perfectly. Lettuce and Tomato and more bacon would have been even better. Fries were coated in a mixture of... More

Pretty good burgers and fries, especially for an airport. The staff is fairly friendly as well though prices are what you'd expect at an airport, high. The burgers are tasty and the froes are delicious, especially the rosemary ones.
