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

I've been going to fosters since they were located in a much smaller location. Food isn't bad but if you don't like your burger well done you might want to see if they will cook it another way. It's not called the Charburger for nothing. Fries are good, hot dogs good as well. Wings are pretty good. Cheesesteak is good... More

Hamburger tastes great from grill, seasoned fries and all you can drink, drinks and located across street from train station and great walk around the old downtown.

Foster's Grill is a great place for great charbroiled burgers, shakes, and fries. You pretty much get this consistently at all locations. The only problem that I and others have with the place is that in the winter it is COLD sitting at the tables. Maybe it's the design of the place or the expansive glass used between the seating...

Fosters is in competition with Five Guys for the best burger. They have other good food too (like the chicken sandwich). This location is fast and friendly with community decor on the walls, it also has outdoor seating for the right season. I like their ordering method which sets them apart.

When we want a burger this is the place. Food is cooked to order,and there are a lot of customizations for the burgers, so we always do a phone-in order. Our food is always ready right on time and prepared exactly as ordered. The staff is very friendly . If you do eat in, just be prepared to wait a... More

An interesting place - you go in, fill out a form choosing your burger, topping and sides, and they bring the meal to you when it is ready! The burgers were big (1/2 lb), fresh and tasty and the fries were fresh cut. Very informal atmosphere and a helpful staff. I love char-broiled burgers!
