“Good, but pricy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Title says it all. They offer tons of choices to customize the burgers, but each option costs a bit more.

“Expensive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011 via mobile

This belongs in New York with these prices. Better burgers elsewhere. Salty and sloppy.

“Definitely getting Serious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

I've eaten at Serious Burger 4 times since they opened and have been happy to see the response to customer concerns: Initially their price points for lunch were just too high for a plain cheese burger. They brought it down a dollar and I think that helped. Offering more reasonably priced fountain soda instead of only gourmet sodas was also a win. The most outstanding addition was recognizing many of their customers have half-pints they want to bring along. The kids dine free promotion has definitely been an Epic Win.

Getting on to review the main attraction. My personal favorite the Wild Truffle Burger has amazing depth of flavor with the gooey carmelized onions and soft cooked center fried egg oozing over the top. My husband loves the Aged Cheddar Cheese with Ale Mustard topping his burger. It is wonderful to get a burger cooked rare or medium rare and have it perfectly cooked every time. The Brioche Bun has just a touch of sweetness and is never soggy. At lunch our biggest problem is agreeing on one burger to split. They are just too big with the bun for one person, particularly if you have any fries or a shake. The milk shakes and malts are pricey, a bit more than local specialty ice cream parlors, but worth it for the flavor. I've tried the plain, sweet potato and truffle dusted fries and would highly recommend the last .

“A great burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

I had the Wild Truffle Burger ($10) and "Gourmet Crispy Onion Rings." The onion rings were fine (hot and crispy), but nothing extra special. I couldn't taste the Leinenkugels in their beer batter. On the other hand, the burger was juicy, flavorful, and served on a delicious brioche bun. There is nothing in the way of ambiance here (including boxes of potatoes stacked near the soda machine), but if you want a tasty burger made fresh with local ingredients, this is the place to go.

“Juicy Burgers and Crispy Fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

Best burger I have had out to eat in a very, very long time. Their food is cooked fresh to order, even the fries. We had sweet potato fries and the small was more than plenty for the 2 of us to share. They claim to serve only organic foods, and by the freshness of it all, I am sure they do. It is small inside, you order at the counter, and refill your own sodas. But this is the style of the place. I would go again for sure.
