“Awesome Burgers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Our new favorite joint! I think I have finally succeeded in locating a burger that will replace my love of In-N-Out, as native SoCal person...awesome burgers, sweet potato fries, and the rosemary garlic fries are to die for.

Great service, speedy, cooked to order, and they will doctor up your burger how ever you want it. Fun place to hang out as well.

“Best Burger Hands Down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

BGR ..the burger joint at the Atlantic Station in Atlanta has the best burgers I've every eaten. Hormone free, angus beef, handmade, made to order, and if you happen to enjoy turkey rather than beeflike turkey no worries you're in for a treat. Customer service was top notch. I ate the Southwest burger with the mango salsa on the side and no mojo sauce. I ate it slow to savor the taste. The price is high but you get what you pay for. No run of the mill burger joint. They do sell beer if thats your thing. There is nothing fancy about this place but its a burger joint remember. BGR will be a must have whenever I'm in Atlanta .

“Food is average, overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Don't understand the rave reviews for this restaurant. Burgers are just OK, fries are average, and all are overpriced. If I'm going to eat a burger I'd rather go to Five Guys or head up to Cheeburger Cheeburger.

“The est Shakes for the Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had the most thick, delicious, tasty shakes. The Chocolate/Strawberry combo can not be beat. It is that good. The sweet potato Fries are first class is taste and plentiful. The Burgers are just wonderful. So service maybe be slow, but the food is terrific.

“Great burgers. Get the Lamb or Veggie!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

I had an unbelievably well made lamb burger with feta, tzaziki, onion and cucumber. It was fantastic. My wife's veggie burger made with oats and rice was also amazing. While pricey these burgers are huge, as are the sides, we just split one (sweet potato fries were fantastic).
