If you can get in, you'll love it

Small establishment. Tight quarters but if you can wait it out, get in or a table outside you will not be disappointed. Beer selection superb and the burgers are awesome!

Okay, I'm a burger nut!!! I admit it. Having found this while vacationing Massanutten Resort, we found the best little burgers. Nothing fancy but a Kobe Beef Burger...whatelse do you need. DOn't mess with perfection by the desire to add alot of condiments and rabbit food. This is where the beff is and it doesn't come any better. If you... More

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!
