“Do we really need another burger joint in the area? Actually, yes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Discovered BGR based on a friend’s Facebook posting. Glad I went to try it because it is one of the best burgers in the area. The burgers were just the right size, not colossal like MELT and not small and squished like Five Guys. And our burgers were cooked exactly right! The fries were excellent and overall atmosphere of the place was good. I ordered a regular Cheeseburger with caramelized onions; husband had the Wellington Burger (roasted mushrooms, caramelized onions and blue cheese... a bit rich tasting, but good). (see pictures). In addition to the usual suspects on the menu, they have sweet potatoes fries, grilled asparagus, a tuna burger and beer and wine. There have been a lot of burger places that have opened in the area lately (Five Guys, MELT, Tender Jacks, Burgerfi, Fosters Grill, etc.) but BGR is by far the better of all of them. Can’t wait to go back.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We got the Wellington burger and sweet potato fries. Nothing to complain about. Burger was good, not greasy. Good, solid burger. We understand their french fries with rosemary, garlic and cheese are delicious, but we did not know that prior and tried their sweet potato fries instead. Again, good. The prices were a little steep for what you get. Atmosphere was good too.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Our food was good but small burgers with a high price. My husband left hungry and had to go home and eat something else. Bigger burgers for a better price elsewhere. Nice atmosphere in comfortable weather when they roll up the walls (like garage doors).

“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Our son works near here. I was visiting from out of town and Friday nite it was getting late when we were finishing up an outside project. He asked what I felt like and I said where can we get a great burger that we aren't going to have to wait for forever as it is primetime Friday night? He says get in the car I have the spot. So just minutes away from the Ashburn area here we go. It was very busy but the gentleman at the counter went thru everything with me and before we knew it he had our orders and our little buzzer. It wasn't long at all before we had our food. I chose the sliders. Excellent. Cooked just right. My son enjoyed a veggie style burger that I tasted and sure wasn't your standard bocca veggie burger...hand made. We also ordered parmesean and garic fries to try...amazing. plenty to drink as the machines are right there. Can't wait to take my hubby on our next trip over. Excellent
