Great Burgers

We often stop here when we are in Temple. The burgers are consistently good and fresh. They are similar to but better than Whataburger. Fries are good. They are a little stingy with the ketchup, so 4 stars not 5.

I do not like the food here. Everyone raves about the burgers and have no clue why. The building outside is probably the best part of this place.

The burger I had was very good. You are given the choice of fries, tater tots, or onion rings, also you can have half orders of two of the three. Another unusual choice is you can choose either mayo or Miracle Whip as well as the normal condiments.

There is no way the folks who rated the burgers here 4 or 5 were sincere. Very thin meat though freshly cooked. Though the pwrson who took our orders did get them right, it was unsettling to see the front counter person wearing a shirt with lots of old food stains that looked unwashed. You even have to go outside... More

If you are looking for the type of juicy burger that you can't help but make a mess with this is it!! Great fresh sides, and delicious old fashioned hamburgers. Service was great!

Passing through Temple, tried Rylander's. Burger was fresh, hot, good. Tater tots were good, french fries were ok. Big portion. Workers were friendly enough. Rest room is in back, you must go out of restaurant and worker has to open it for you. Had to wait until she was not busy.

One of the best burgers in Temple. There are a handful of places that still make burgers the old fashion way, and Rylander's is one of them. I'll definitely keep going back.

The burgers at Rylaner's are first class... They are made to order, always hot and taste great. This place has been around forever and is a great place to put on your list to visit.

This restaurant started out as the original Temple Whataburger. A lot has changed over the years, but the burgers are still cooked one at a time as you order them.
