This restaurant is a great seasonal offering during the Spring/Summer/Fall. Unique atmosphere, good food, lots of ice cream options and specialty choices. Quick, friendly service.

Though prices seem to have gone up since last year, we couldn't make a trip back to Caribou from Florida without enjoying the Poutine Chicken Royale. Large portions good for myself and 2 kids. Over the course of 2 weeks in town, we ate this on 4 separate occasions.

This place started it all! A local landmark and summer hangout. Food is certainly good their menu has delicacies like bacon wrapped red hot dogs! They also have an awesome dairy bar. But the fifties theme drives me nuts. Can't say why I get it its like the last burger boy in the country and it was the fifties but... More

This was my first time here, the girl behind the counter seemed kind of annoyed we were there. I ordered the hamburg steak, which was a little overcooked, my son liked his burger, maybe you don't notice if its in a bun. Fresh cut fries are good. My onion rings were decent.

Great place to grab a burger or wonderful fries. Like ice cream dream of a flavor and they probably have it. Only open in the nice weather. Recently bought by a young man who definitely make a go of it.

Food is good but quite and usually not enough food for the price you pay. May walk away hungry. Expensive for a family.

Burger Boy is a diner that had changed little since the 1950s or 60s. It offers many a fattening delight, from whistle dogs (red hot dogs with bacon and cheese inside) to friend seafood (clams, fish and more) to pizza burgers. The decor is fun and the staff is friendly. The food is alright, but it's mostly about the environment.... More

Great staff, weekly specials and they have something for everyone in the family to enjoy. We are from Southern Maine and every time we head up north we MUST!! stop in. The kids love to play by the stream while the wait for their food to be fixed. Also I love all the modern updates, it shows how technology is... More

Just remember when posting pictures....not all of us want our children on Facebook. It is a something you need to think about. If it's your child that s one thing but, not everyone s comfortable with it.

Sorry if I have posted a picture of your child. My guess this was one of the Little League pictures recently taken at Burger Boy and posted on our Facebook page. I have since removed all pictures of the baseball team posted this year and will not post any more pictures of them moving forward. Thanks for bringing this to... More

If you grew up in the 50's and 60's, this will probably bring back memories. This is the type of place that is getting difficult to find. Good burgers, fries, fish and chips, shakes, ice cream and more. Nothing fancy, but you won't get a bad meal here, and the prices are more than reasonable. We live in the S.W.... More
