Had a restaurant.com discount for this place and decided to give it a try. Burgers were very good and large. Fries were also good and tested fresh. Sweet tea was a bit old tasting but drinkable.

This place is a great place to eat!! They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their burgers are made fresh, daily. They have a wide variety on the menu, from burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, to different types of sandwiches. They also offer salads, fries, sweet potato fries, fried dill pickles, and my favorite, onion rings. My husband and I try... More

We stopped on our way to visit our son & wife & went through drive in. Order was quick and smelled delicious. The hamburger meat made the difference, it was fresh & flavorful, not like the burger meat on fast food burgers. Now whenever we talk about a good burger Hamburger Heaven is the standard we judge by. We wil... More

Incredible burgers. Absolutely the best in Birmingham. I love the onion rings and corn balls also. Great club sandwich. Really good milkshakes.

Always a great place to stop for a BLT, sweet potato fries/onion rings and the Peach Shakes are to die for.

Over rated burger spot. Greasy, saw them, after cooking burger, pour the grease over it. I know I shouldn't complain about fat in a burger, but too much isn't good either. Franks were better, but on the salty side. This reminds me of an old fashioned, on the road, burger spot. Heard it's been around for years, but I think... More

The burgers and hot dogs were good. They were made to order, fresh, and hot. The french fries are thicker cut, which is great. We had one shake at our table, peanut butter. It was very thick but had just the right amount of peanut butter taste. Overall a good meal but nothing exceptional.

Had big burger and onion rings. Wife and I split the burger and it was very good. Service was very fast and cared about my order and checked it twice to make sure.
