“Wings were great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

The ordering is very weird, though, because for something like wings, there are boneless or regular listed on the menu board, but not on the order pad. If you like a specific number of wings, don't get a combo, which gives you a set number. The menu pad ordering makes it kind of difficult with a family who is getting substitutions (like milkshakes instead of sodas) and sharing items. Plus, you have to stand there while they are entering your order and they are asking you questions on what you checked off, so it seems like a very unnecessarily step and a waste of paper and time to have those order pads. Anyway, the burgers were ok, but certainly not amazing and the onion rings were good, but not incredible. Wings and sauce were great.

The food was well priced and tasty. We sat outside on the patio on a warm November afternnon and enjoyed our meal. The burgers were delicious, and the beer selection was good(chocolate peanut butter stout...yummm)

“Mediocre burgers, great shakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Went to Foster's based on recommendations and reviews. I'll echo what others have said that the ordering process is confusing. You get a menu pad and make your choices but there is information missing from the pad (like prices, what's in a basket, how to order wings, etc.) and so you end up looking at the menu board and then translating that to the pad. Then, you give it to the cashier who proceeds to ask you questions about what your ordered. In essence, you have to order three times - very inefficient. There were only a few people in front of us but the ordering process took a good 10 minutes.

As for the food, it arrived fairly quickly and came as ordered. The burgers were mediocre at best, with dry and crumbly (i.e., stale) buns and patties that tasted pre-formed and dry as well. The toppings were fine. The fries were also only OK, better than Fudrucker's but nowhere near as good as Five Guys. The onion rings were pretty good and the shakes were excellent. The wings were good although I have certainly had better. Overall, it was, well, "meh." With so many really good burger places around, the mediocre food and confusing ordering process, I wouldn't go again and I wouldn't recommend the place (except for the shakes).

“OK lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Visit with family on Saturday afternoon. Food was quick in coming and great fresh cut French fries. We had a pitcher of beer that was not very cold, this put a damper on the lunch.

“Charbroiled Burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The charbroiled burgers are good. I'm more of a fan of grill fried burgers, so this isn't my first choice for burgers. I've always had a good meal and we go here a couple of times a year. The prices seem a little on the high side for burgers, but it certainly a place you can bring the whole family.
