“Getting better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This is my daughter's favorite place to eat, and they do have good burgers. If that's what you're in the mood for, you're in luck. Otherwise, the rest of the menu is so-so. The last time I got a sandwich from Bagger Dave's the "grilled" bread was greasy with butter and barely grilled. This time the "grilled" bread was more toasted and less greasy, so that was a big improvement. The mac & cheese is okay; it is loaded with cheese to the point that the cheese follows you from the bowl to your mouth (like a piece of pizza when the cheese is so thick you can't cut it). Personally, I think they could cut back on the cheese and it would be a better dish. I also had a side Caesar salad, which was typical. Nothing special, but no surprises so that was okay.

“What a GREAT place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Had lunch on Saturday with my wife. Everyone working in this place smiles, is happy and really have fun giving the customer a great experience. What a refreshing event.
Good selection of beer on tap and wine. Turkey chili was one of those dishes that you want seconds and thirds. Burgers were fantastic. Choices for burger size. Cool. Had the 12 oz. what a meal. Add anything you can find on the list. More choices. I like choices. Fries were tangy, hot and plentiful. Our waitress was most attentive but not pesty. Smiles everywhere.
This place gies to the top 3 in the neighborhood. Oh and prices were very fair for the quality and quantity served. Can't wait to go back.

“Poor service and luke warm food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We ate here recently on a Saturday noon. We have enjoyed other Bagger Daves, so expected the same here. Our server had to come back because she forgot what we ordered for drinks - then did not bring mine without a reminder. Our food took a long time to come out and when it did, both our burgers were luke warm, so obviously had been sitting in back for awhile. This was a disappointing lunch and we will not be back.

“Sports bar, little else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

The burgers ( and the rest of the limited menu ) are expensive ( $9 and up ). What we ordered tasted fine, but nothing mind-blowing -- nothing that would be worth those prices, or anything close to those prices -- to me.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My boyfriend and I love going here. We go about once a month and have never had a bad experience. It is a bit expensive, but definitely worth it in our opinion.
