Great service and milkshakes

My husband and I had a nice lunch here, The service was great. My husband appreciates a place that regularly uses chocolate ice cream for chocolate shakes and not vanilla ice cream. I had the Portobello sandwich and my husband had a hamburger, the fries were good but would have been better with... read more

The Hamburger Inn is one of our favorites in charming downtown Delaware. We have been eating here for several years, but stopped going about two years ago after having a baby. The problem with having a baby, is that the whole restaurant is communal style seating at a counter on a stool. Though they had some highchairs that hung from... More

Passing through Delaware on our way home, we saw the Hamburger Inn and decided to give it a try. It is located right in the heart of downtown Delaware. Upon entering, you get a nostalgic feel as there are no tables - just a long counter with islands surrounded by stools. Nothing fancy, just good old fashioned burger diner, which... More

I had the pleasure of eating at the Hamburger Inn over the weekend. I love an old diner and this place has been around since 1932. The place is still in decent shape after all that time. It was reasonably clean. The tables are set up so that your are sharing space with strangers, which I thought was really cool.... More

Although much of the Hamburger Inn food is delicious .........don't miss the cinnamon rolls, best pancakes EVER and skillfully prepared eggs and breakfast potaoes. Great old fashioned diner feel in a historic location in beautiful downtown Delaware!

First visit. Our waitress was very nice and suggested we try the hamburgers. Friend and I both had the Bacon Cheese Hamburgers. We had the smallest burger but it was large, cooked right and on a very fresh bun. We both thought the burgers were very good and filling. I had the waffle fries which were good. My friend had...

The homemade soups and daily specials are excellent and priced fairly. The signature burgers are average at best. Third shift breakfasts are huge and tasty. Cinnamon rolls are baked daily and are very popular for take-out.

Hamburger Inn is the classic burger joint. Located in the heart of downtown Delaware, Ohio. Nothing fancy, just good old fashioned diner food. We walked in to the Hamburger Inn and saw counter seating only. I loved it, reminded me of the drugstore diners when I was a kid. We sat on our stools at the and were greeted by... More

Other than the interior, there's just nothing special about it. I've taken my 8 year old boy there twice. He was thrilled with the old school counter seating, but I can't say the food was anything great. It's about the quality of cafeteria food. The second time, I brought the entire family. Since our youngest was too little for the... More
