This is a funky tiny little place with the most awesome burgers!!! Very inventive menu. They only serve hamburgers and hotdogs, and fries, but my oh my, they are delicious!! Great beer selection. Outside dining, or at the bar. Love it!!

The Elvis. Seriously The Elvis. All wagyu burgers with amazing twists. Everday burger menu but also daily burger specials that will flip your wig. All paired well with their craft beer selections; bottles and draft. Specialty hot dogs taboot! Also never miss one of their tap takeovers or steal-a-pint-nights. Finish your experience here with the best fried oreos. Woo!

I was introduced to JB's when I spent a summer at JMU. That summer changed my life for two reasons. First, it led me to the woman of my dreams, now my wife. Second, it led to the burger of my dreams, now my obsession. I have never had a better burger. JB's straight cheeseburger is incredible enough, but you... More

Jack Brown's is a very cool local place. It's a small hole in the wall bar on one side and a covered patio area attached to it. It is a unique place with a unique menu. Each day has a different specially designed burger to try. There are hundreds of beers to choose from and frequent customers can keep a... More

We were moving our daughter into JMU and heard this was the place to try. All the tables were taken, but fortunately there were three seats at the bar ready for us. While it's a bit on the "dive" side (ok with us) it certainly goes with the College town atmosphere and has the best burger I've had in years.... More

Visited during a busy lunch time. Told a 30 min wait. Was in reality only 5. Slightly disorganized service... but trying hard and improved throughout the visit. However the food was simply terrific. Great tasting, juicy burgers. We had our dog with us. We sat in the outdoor seating. Made feel very welcome and he was given some milky bone... More

Burger lives up to the hype - delicious and creative. We tried the Showalter and Chiflin burgers. Would be a 5 for burgers and beer selection, but the service, while friendly, was scattered - our server forgot part of our order, and even after being notified, never remembered until after the she brought the check. And the tables are near... More

I guess the locals and college kids like this place. With the great reviews, I expected an amazing burger. Not so. The bun is nothing better than store bought, cheap quality ones. No lettuce or tomatoes. In fairness, they want you to eat it with bacon. I'm just not a bacon fan. The sweet potato fries are good and come... More

If you like burgers, beer or both, this is your spot. We were traveling through hungry for dinner, and found this spot. Had some great burgers and beer, over 100 beers to choose from. Not fancy, you'll eat at the bar, friendly and helpful wait staff.

Cramped little bar, but limit supply and drive up demand. Sometimes hard to get a seat. I love the Elvis burger, and you have to get a fried oreo. Large selection of beer. Ladies, if you feel adventurous, try adding to the ceiling bra collection!
