“Burgers, the way they used to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Back in the 50's, when Mom and Dad stopped by the highway for lunch on our vacation trips, THIS is the kind of place we stopped at. There were no golden arches or a chance to "have it your way." You ordered a burger, told the waitress you didn't want onions, and marveled at the size of the burger ... almost as big as your 7 year-old head!
Jims Burger Haven is a step back in time: big, 6-inch burgers; thick shakes; fries cooked crispy and hot; enough neon to take you back to 1957; and none of the kitsch which is supposed to be nostalgic, but says "made in Asia" all over it.
The burger was juicy, but not greasy. The onions and lettuce were crisp and fresh. Service was prompt and friendly for a made-to-order burger. Reasonably priced, I'll be back.

“Awesome burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Excellent burgers! The staff is so nice and friendly. Restaurant is like a 50's diner. Great prices too. We ordered the milk shakes and they are loaded with ice cream. Yummy!

“Pretty good burgers and pretty good menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 via mobile

Jim burger haven is off Sheridan and 78th (right next to the Goodyear tire store).

It's a classic restaurant in terms of they make the classic American burger. They have a bevy of choices and it's pretty good to have. Sometimes we forget what a burger should taste like. But going here really brings back some good memories in the past.

I would only eat here for the burgers. Although the rest of the menu looks and sounds good, it's their burgers that really make eating here worth while.

“Awesome old fashioned burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012 via mobile

Great place to go. Huge greasy delicious 6 inch burgers. Wrapped in wax paper and held together with a toothpick. Malts are awesome just like when I was a kid and great onion rings. Service was good. A place worth the trip

“Best grill spot in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Its a gut bomb for sure but man is it tasty... I dont go here for the health benefits but as a treat it cant be beat. Onion rings and malts are a must with any burger on the menu.
