This is a very small place on Highway 18. As you are driving east it is on your left. Keep your eyes open or you will miss it. Great burgers.

The Burger Depot is themed after a train depot with lots of train memorabilia. A couple runs the business so sometimes food comes slower than other places, but it provides the best fast food experience. The food is very American, lots of fried food and burgers. The drinks are the standard soft drinks, they also have ice cream, malts, and... More

I have been dining at this little "hole in the wall" for over 30 years. It is easy to tell when it is open by the large American Flag flying in front of the restaurant. Dave and Laura built this restaurant, and still provide the same great food and service. The hamburgers, fries, and hand flavored sodas are all favorites.... More

I come here at least once a week to get food for myself or my family. The couple that run it are really nice and the food is good. The French fries are delicious.

Burger Depot is open Monday through Friday and up until recently we were never in the area during their hours open. However due to family necessity, we were able to visit Burger Depot twice within the last few months. This is a restaurant my husband visited years and years ago when he was growing up in the area. He was... More

They are friendly and deal mostly in traditional burgers, made to order. Items are made fresh. They are closed weekends. The taquitos are yummy. The burgers are big, and filling. The shakes are tasty too. I have eaten there a number to times. They are predominately a drive-thru place, with a few outside tables and three tables inside.

On your way to Vegas or back via Hwy 247? Worth the detour once you reach 18. The old couple were as nice as could be, and there wasn't a thing we ordered that wasn't really tasty. They pay attention to their ingredients and care into their service. It's clear they don't mind not being directly on the main Vegas... More
