I haven't been here in a while. Cajun fries were very good and portions are large. But my burger was weird. I ordered the California burger. Supposed to be beef and maybe it was, but it was a light brown color and looked quite processed. Not a fresh burger, and not particularly hot. I double checked the menu to make... More

Now there are more burger places in town but Meat Heads is the one that locals do enjoy. You place your order at the counter with a nice selection of burger styles and fries to select from. There are sauces, too. The dining room is clean and tidy. The staff is friendly and patient with the customers. Kids love the... More

Meatheads is a really good burger restaurant. You can choose a burger that they recommend or make one up with the toppings you choose. The fries are good and the portions are very large. I would pick a small to share. I love the Coke freestyle machine for soda. I love picking my own flavor. I enjoy this restaurant. It... More

First off, this joint differs from Five Guys, don't compare. We loved these burgers. I recommend the "Cajun Sunrise." The fries are also tasty. Staff was amazing. When we tried to throw away our trash, the manager stopped and said, "Thanks, but I clean up my own house, I'll take care of it." Awesome.

Really good juicy burger. Fries were good to average. Had good sauces for fries. The burger is what I was hungry for. Just like mom use to make.

We have eaten at Meat Head's several times during our visits at University of Illinois in ChUrb. This time was no different- excellent food and service. I got the salad with chicken, sooo good. The Italian dressing is superb. Love eating here.

A step up from fast food burgers. Love the thin stacked patties. Not as greasy as Five Guys (although I love them too) and a much wider selection. Son had a burger with pineapple and jalapeño, which I thought was weird but he loved. Other son had a patty melt that was very tasty. Great thin crispy fries. I had... More

Decent burger and cajun fries were ok. Pricey, like most of the "gourmet" burger joints these days. Nice looking restaurant. I'd give it a whirl to see if you like better than the Guys. It was better than the burgers you get at the arches and from the King.

I go here a couple of times a week and love it! They remember me when I come in or drive up, they go out of their way to give good service. The fries (I get regular) are to die for and so are the milk shakes. Last week I tried the 2 or 4 piece chicken tenders and they... More

I've been a vegetarian for over 15 years, and this is one of my favorite restaurants. Get a pimped out grilled cheese - add grilled onions, avocado, etc. Add a side of fries with cheese sauce and a milkshake. Life is good.
