This is a local favorite established in 1966. A place to have a great burger, reuben, club or sandwich. Voted best burger of maury county many years. Its more than a burger joint, its a place to see friendly faces in a friendly atmosphere. It is an older place but is kept very clean and holds a health inspection grade of 100.

Very good food and service

Had a great lunch here with a friend. Burgers were very good and the service was good as well. We had nothing to complain about and found it to be very well worth the money.

Stopped here for lunch one day, was not disappointed! Good, greasy burgers and the curly fries were good as well! My mom had the reuben sandwich and it was good. Enjoyed all of the local news articles on the walls throughout the joint. Cool little place worth a stop if you're hungry for a burger in Columbia!

We always have a great time, service, and food when we go here. Greasy spoon kinda place. These are the suggestions you get when you ask the locals what's good to eat around here.

Great burgers, fries, drinks. Place can get crowded at times but food makes up for crowding and noises. Not a lot of parking so we try to be early for whatever meal we are going for.

The first time I ate at By-Pass Deli I really didn't know what to expect. People said the food was great. The building is pretty old and not much to look at. I ordered my food and went to pay for it and the Lady behind the counter said you pay when you leave. She said "you might not like... More

I read in the local paper that this had been voted best burger in town a few years in a row. We decided to check it out. The first impression when you walk in is that this place is on the dirty side and hasn't been cleaned in quite some time. We ordered cheese burgers and fries. As I was... More

I stopped here with a friend who told me these were the best burgers in town. I'd eat McDonalds before eating here again. If you like meat that is starting to turn grey and fried frozen mushrooms, then this fly infested hole in the wall is for you.

This is a greasy sppon joint thathas great burgers. It can be crowded during lunch hour and weekend evenings, but it is crowded for a reason. Hand patted. The fries are good, but onion rings better. Try the reuben sandwich, it is the best I have had in the south.
