Best Charburger Hands Down!

Every year there is some kind of "best burger" contest in the Metro DC area and Foster's never seems to make the cut. We've tried many of the places that make the list and they just don't compare to Foster's. You have to like the "char" part of the burger (what Burger King claims to be famous... read more

I ordered the lite fare charburger. After waiting over 15 minutes for our order, my burger arrived burnt around all the edges...approximately 1/3rd of the burger...and what didn't almost break my teeth was extremely dry. At least the fries and sweet tea were good. I'm sure we'll return, because my family liked this place, but I'm not ordering any more... More

I stop at Foster's for a 'go' lunch on the way home from the golf course most weekends. I order the same every time, kid's burger meal, Burger meal, and a beer while I wait. I kind of agree with other reviewers, the service isn't great, in fact this past weekend the only person behind the counter old enough to... More

This nice sit down lunch style restaurant has many things to offer. The steak sandwich is tasty and hardy. Fries and onion-rings are both top notch. I will go back again and try their hot dogs which seems varied and robust. The location is perfect and they get more business due to the lack of near by competition.

I will admit the service is never great here. Really the downfall. Wish they would improve that at all their places. Been to 4 locations and none of them are that good with service. staff is not always friendly either. However the food is pretty good. I think the hamburgers are one of the best. Wife thinks 5 guys is... More

I went once and never went back. Not because it was horrible but because it wasn't MEMORABLE. The food took entirely too long for a burger joint. It wasn't great but I don't see me going back without a great coupon.

I won't say this is the best MEAL I've ever had, but I do say they serve the best hamburgers in town! A great looking place to join friends for a casual hamburger dining experience. YUM!

I went once and ordered a burger which was dry, very dry, 2nd time I went the owner wasn't helpful nor friendly and after the slow service the 1st time just walked out. Way to slow and not customer friendly in my opinion, this was when the heavy set guy was behind the counter. I won't go back....very slim chance!

Stopped by this past Sunday since I was in the mood for a hamburger that is not fast food. You place your order at the counter and tell them how you want your hamburger. They were busy so it took a while to get the burgers. My husband ordered just the hamburger but they brought it with fries (not sure... More
