When returning to Pittsburgh from western Ohio, I make it a point to stop here and pick up 2 or 3 dozens of wings to bring home. They are fabulous. The majority of the time I call my order in and they are ready when I arrive.

I have lived in the area for about 13 years. I have heard about The Thurman for just as long. Contrary to what others say here, The Thurman has been popular for a very longtime. I just never felt the need to go, even though I love burgers. I finally went a few days ago and it was great! Yes,... More

The burgers are awesome and some are rather unique. It's small inside and not suitable for children, but they now have a take out location.

Stopped here on a visit to Columbus with my girlfriend. Small cozy great atmosphere and good customer service. The food was top notch, I ended up getting the Therminator it's a massive burger that was debuted on man versus food. It's a everyday casual place to dine that's in German village in Columbus ohio.

We visited this place because we saw it on Man vs. Food. The building was actually very low key and somewhat hard to find and smaller than one would think on the inside. The food however was great. This was probably one of the first times I had to cut a burger in half before I attempted to eat it... More

Read about the Thurman Cafe and drove out for lunch one day while on a business trip. My colleague and I ordered these burgers that I couldn't believe how BIG they were when they arrived. There was no way I was going to get this in my mouth. The burger itself was cooked perfectly and delicious. We had the fried... More

What can I say that hasn't been already said? Excellent service, food quality, and Yum factor! I will stop by here and Schmidts every time through Columbus. Best of the German village area.

Loved the restaurant and food, always a highlight of visiting Columbus. Coming from the UK, big burgers at home are just that, big, no real taste of flavour, but at Thurman's they also taste so good. You can't help but finish them, even with a small appetite, you can't resist the next mouthful!
