“As good as Ray's Hell Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

What a nice surprise. The best burger I had in a while. As good as Ray's Hell Burgers. Fries with garlic were excellent. Added to my IPhone's Goback List.

“Great Burgers, Not Fast Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

BGR isn't fast food in any sense of the word. They offer a gourmet burger experience made to order. It will take a while for your burger to be made so don't be surprised to wait awhile. The burgers start at $9 so it isn't cheap but its worth it. The burgers are fresh, juicy, and large. The french fries (both regular and sweet) are very good, too.

“Definitely worth a try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This place is tucked away in a shopping center in Sterling in an old gas station. The spot is pretty cool, but VERY small and can get pretty busy. The burgers themselves are pretty good and flavorful, but they are overpriced in my opinion. The onion rings are good and the freestyle coke machine is really fun, but I think the new burger joint MELT in Leesburg is better in my opinion. They have some other pattie options likeA hi Tun or Veggie, if tthat's your thing. If you are a burger lover, this place is definitely worth the visit; just not as good as MELT, Rays Hell Burger, or even Big Buns in Arlington.

“When 'Specialty' is spelled O V E R P R I C E D.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

In a world where almost every restaurant you step into has a version of a burger as a 'burger' restaurant you better offer unsurpassed product with a great value.

This is not the case when you have to pay extra for cheese (at a 'burger' joint). A burger and cheese go together like peanut butter and jelly. I shouldn't be told that the jelly is extra.

The burgers are average for the price you pay. The fries are overcooked...but if you pay extra you can add on some extras that will mask this.

There are no 'combos' everything is piecemeal - for two expect to spend 30 dollars.

If you want an average burger there are a lot of places to visit in Sterling that are at least better priced for the product.
