Their menu includes two pages of different hamburger combinations. Good food for the money. Nice to eat outside. High top seating inside.

My family's favorite place for burgers. My favorite is the peppercorn burger but have tried several and all are delicious. We had the Big Bang shrimp last night loved it. They do get busy and you may have to wait but it is worth it.

I can not believe that I have never reviewed the Tracks. GREAT food at very reasonable pricing and large portions. The best part is you can substitute any burger for a chicken breast. The staff are some of the nicest we have ever met and always make sure they say hello to everyone. The owner makes sure to say hello... More

Been meaning to try this for years! The Tracks is located, appropriately enough, by the Cary train station. There are three sections: a bar, a restaurant, and the patio. They are known for their burgers, so I had a pizza burger and my husband had the Chicago Fire burger which had bacon and fried onions ( it was about 4... More

I have not taken the time to write a review, and I should have before this. Dine in or Carry Out, the food is always top quality. Never tastes like it is frozen , out of a box, or reheated, which you can find at many places. The staff greats you, and they are all friendly with big smiles, and... More

So many have suggested we try this for burgers, and we did last night. Along with 4 players from grandson's baseball team and 7 other adults. Burger was delish, and our server was great. With large group it was a short wait and were seated outside to enjoy the night air! Fish fry also looked awesome. A fun night, great... More

We love this place great food, specials like 2.00 hamburgers on Tuesday night. They are known for hamburgers and their fish fry! I love the salads they have a nice variety to choose from. I like their Rueben sandwich too. Always nice portions and great tasting. The staff is always friendly and professional. Sometimes you need to wait to get... More

Best burgers in cary. Even though the menu is for the most part "bar food" it is all made very well and there isn't a dish that I've had that's been disappointing. Love the $2 Burger Tuesdays.

This is our favorite places to eat! I wish it were bigger because it is always packed but well worth every minute waiting! The end result is always juicy, yummy goodness! Great beer selection. Out of this world Bloody Mary's! Many different burger choices. Love the bucket of burgers to share! Its comes with fries too!
