Based on all of the reviews we had to try the burger. Tried just a simple cheeseburger. It came with pickles, tomato, and lettuce. The size was a little small for the price. The burger was good but not great. Small bar with limited seating....More

I am never disappointed. Great burgers. Great fries. Great shakes. Special requests accommodated without the blink of an eye. Fun, lively atmosphere. Good for solo diners, too. The price is worth it (higher than one might expect for burgers, but absolutely you get what you...More

With all the amazing reviews for this place I was expecting some really good burgers. Not the case when I went. My husband got the southwestern burger. The chorizo was super salty and overpowering, and there were pickled carrots on it. Have you ever seen...More

My friend and I always choose Mercury Bar. It's very popular, and has great food at affordable prices. Drinks are good too. I had a great Hummer (Kulhua and Ice Cream).
