Juiciest burgers ever!

Juicy, flavorful burgers. Good salads. Inventive cocktails. Attentive wait staff. What more could you want in a neighborhood joint?

I have eaten here many times when in the area. The food is very reasonably priced, always consistent and the variety of local beer is top notch. If you become a regular the staff will remember you and know your favorites. I honestly have no complaints, but I honestly avoid the Sunday Brunch. Just not my style.

Nothing too special here but the food is good and the place is welcoming. Had the chicken cordon bleu and it was very good. Decent beer selection as well. Good fro groups and not crowded.

Grabbed lunch at Christopher's while visiting a soon-to-be graduate of Leslie College because it was close and we heard they served a pretty good burger. Both of those are true. We all had burgers and we all thought they were pretty respectable pub fare. There's a pretty extensive gluten sensitive menu as well. Their beer choices are pretty diverse as... More

As the title says, the food was your average classic pub fare. Not a huge menu unless you like endless options for a cheeseburger. I ordered a chicken sandwich with avocado and it was pretty tasty. Large portions, however I ate it all in one setting! The drinks were delicious. I ordered the organic cucumber cocktail and it was perfect.... More

Christopher's is a cute bar/restaurant in Porter Sq. Cambridge. It's located right across the street from the Porter Sq. Red Line stop. The location is great. It's nice and cozy inside. I sat by the fireplace. The menu offers delicious pub fare and some nice entrees & specials. I had the Parmesan crusted cod which was good. My friend got... More

The burger was juicy and not overly salty, the crispy onions were great and that sauce that they have on it, damn... it was delicious the service was great too and they got us a table right in front of the...

My wife and I have eaten here quite a few times. The selection is pretty eclectic, the food is good and reasonably priced. The place always seems to be busy and we typically go on a Wednesday...can't imagine what it's like on the weekends. You really can't go wrong because the menu is varied enough that find several different items... More

I normally would go for a regular burger but decided to try the turkey burger. It was okay, but my husband ordered the veggie burger and it was delicious! The restaurant was busy, however, we were able to get seated rather quickly. The prices were reasonable and they had a pretty large selection of different things on the menu. It... More
