We love Meatheads. The burgers are so tender and you can add whatever you want to them. The fries are out of this world, and they are very generous with them, You can eat inside or outside on the patio. The only drawback is that they don't carry Pepsi products.

My little brother gets coupons here all the time and loves this place. Actually met the general manager, Nick, there last time we went.

The burgers are good but I LOVED the fries! They were light and crispy. Enjoyable place and lots of good options. I would recommend this as a good, solid hamburger place.

For those unfamiliar with "Meatheads" (like me), understand that this is "Counter Order" and then the meal brought to table. No tipping. I like the no tipping, but am sure the higher than expected price includes a "tip". The price point therefore compares to "Red Robin" with its modified table service without a tip. The differentiation at Meatheads is the... More

The burgers are great and the service is good. But I am just not able to justify $30 for burgers for the wife and I.

We've been back many times. Get the Moolah card, they build points. You get free fries, a free meal, and a free meal for your birthday. I've never had a bad experience there. Even though its 40 miles from us, we try to go at least once a month. They even have the custom blend soda machines, so we can... More

I would not consider this on par with Shake Shack, but I was satisfied with the quality of ingredients and taste. This place is a decent choice for a burger if you are in Bloomington.

Wife and I stopped here on our way to Chicago from St Louis. We both had burgers, split fries and 2 sodas. The total was $17 the patties are a little small but you are only paying a little over 8 bucks a meal. Great quality, very clean restaurant and helpful staff. The fries are very tasty and great consistency.... More

I have eaten here on several occasions and have always had a good experience. One hint - get the kids meal, if you get the burger. It is is the same size as a regular burger (just a little less fries, however, still an ample amount). It is cheaper overall and with free refills, who cares if you get the... More
