Had a delicious lunch here after a long day of hiking on nearby trails. We ordered burgers and a few beers, they have a great selections of both.The bar area was pretty packed when we got there and luckily we were able to grab a few seats when some people got up. There is also an outside seating area, so... More

This is a small joint (and I mean that in the nicest way) that should not be missed. It is the perfect mix of college bar and family burger place. Go with an open mind... as it has a unique décor! The beer list is outstanding!

Based on the TripAdvisor rating, we stopped with our elderly parents for lunch. What no one tells you is this is a bar not a restaurant. There are no tables. Watching my 80 year old parents unsuccessfully attempt to mount a bar stool, I decided to pass on this bar for lunch.

We have stopped here 3 times while traveling on 81 in Virginia. You can only select a couple items but those items address really amazing. I always get a cheeseburger and fries. You will not be disappointed.

I grew up around Harrisonburg and remember when this place first opened. I thought 7 bucks was too much for just a burger... Until I tasted it. I just briefly visited for the holidays and before we left town my boyfriend said, "we have to get a burger from Jack Browns before we leave." So this place has great food,... More

Awesome beer selection to choose from! The staff is very informative if you need help picking out a new beer you've never tried. Food was really good and filling. It was really crowded for dinner with only bar seating inside, so I recommend you arrive early if you have a large group!

I'm not a beer snob, preferring cheap domestic brews over the most fashionable craft brews. Nonetheless, I appreciated the beer list here, had a few beers I've never heard of, and then finished off with some Coors Lights. For the beer connoisseur, you will be in heaven. The beer list is extensive and the bartenders are very, very well versed... More

After leaving JMU we came upon this small food joint. When I say small I mean one inside table and under twenty bar stool. There is outdoor seating with heaters but seating is limited. We sat at the bar ordering the cowboy burger and the special burger of the day (it had Fritos on it can't remember the name) We... More

Looking for a place with the best burgers AND the best beer? Look no further! Virtually any beer you could want paired with imaginatively crafted hamburgers makes for a great meal, any time of the day.
