Ok, this is truly a must visit land mark. As all the reviews will tell you the burgers are fantastic and served on wax paper. Order two for a full meal. You can not go wrong .... if the tables are full go back in an hour.

This place has amazing little cheeseburgers. You will need to order a few as they are small. Loved the billiard atmosphere! You have to act fast to grab a table as they are first come first serve. Great place to grab lunch.

Very old (1800's) pool hall and bar. They serve burgers on wax paper and they are known far and wide over several generations of how good they are...not fancy by any means but good.

We visit booches every time we are in Columbia. Never been disappointed. I've met tried anything but the cheeseburger but they do have other items on the menu. Very limited seating but people are happy to share tables. Definitely will return. Gets pretty noisy & close on Sunday. See you in church!

Love this place! Always the best burger in the WORLD. yet to find one made better. I've been coming here for over 20 years and it's still the best! Chili is good too. Didn't know they made a Ruben, fantastic. The cheeseburger with everything and grilled onions is still the best. Get 2, they're small.

A classic stop in CoMo. Best burgers and cold beer. Get here when it opens to get a seat. Prices are all posted on a large board. Get the cheeseburgers. Great atmosphere.

We take an annual trip to Columbia, Missouri, with friends for a Mizzou football game. Booches is a must stop at some point. We usually have a 45 minute wait to get in on a football Saturday for our larger group. Once inside we order our food and often there is a 45 minute wait for burgers, but they are... More

Booches is always fun and relaxed and that is probably why our son picked it for his 21st birthday dinner. He wanted something low key and this was perfect. The staff went out of their way to make his 21st fun and were so easy to work with. Thank you!

A fun place to go for a burger and a beer. Nothing fancy. No plates. They serve the burgers on a piece of wax paper. On the walls you will find antique pool cue racks for the customers' private pool cues, with tiny padlocks for each individual pool cue. Charming ambience and good food at a reasonable price, with a... More

Every time we visit Columbia eating at Booches is a must. In fact we were here twice this time. There's other things on the menu but we can't get past those delicious burgers. Always consistently good. Don't know what it is about them but don't ever pass up a chance to have them🍔
