“Carnivores of the world - Unite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I've been meaning to visit BGR - The Burger Joint in my previous several trips to Bethesda, and finally had the opportunity to do so. I wasn't sure if this was a full-service restaurant, but knew that it served burgers and beer (what else do you need)?

The menu offers fare you'd find in similar hamburger chains (5 Guys, Meatheads, etc.) Not knowing what to expect, I ordered a double cheeseburger with the fixings. A pager is given to you upon ordering, buzzes when your order is ready.

My eyes bulged when I was served this masterpiece! I had to squeeze this thing to eat it, and as other reviewers note - it really was a great burger.

They had three brews on tap; unfortunately,the first two I ordered were "out" - nothing but foam! All in all, however, the Burger Joint more than satisfied my craving for a delicious cheeseburger.

“Good for a Quick Hamburger!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

You have to place your order at the front and then wait for them to prepare it and then pick it up. Not a fancy place, but great burgers!

“Great burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

An excellent burger. Highly recommended. For those who love very spicy food, get the "spice it up" option!

“Feed that burger fix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Great place to cure that burger craving. Sometimes a little poor on the service, but then this is not really a sit down restaurant.

“Good Burgers...Decent Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My father and I were looking for something different, and I happened to find this Burger Joint location online. The menu looked interesting and we decided to try it.

The location itself average and the atmosphere is that of a fast food resturant with and `80's theme which is at least intersting.

The burgers, however are very tastey and fresh. The fries are also good and I was impressed to find that they had a large selection of soda, and also had wine too.
