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🍔

By all means, if you're in Columbia, stop in at Booches and get yourself a burger. These are like the burgers your dad used to make - there's no fancy pretzel bun, no fried egg on top, just a juicy, delicious burger.

Sort of a "hole in the wall" kind of place. EXCELLENT burgers, but small in size so order two! No fries, just chips. Nice place to hang out and relax with friends.

Booches is a popular spot for local business people and college students alike. I was there around lunchtime and it was pretty crowded. The burgers are small but flavorful, so order more than one. When I was there they were cash only, so make sure you have more than just a card.

A unique place that should be enjoyed. Realize, your burger will be served on wax paper...and it will be on the greasy side--but tasty. Good beer, good company. Locals hang out here.

My expectations were very high since Booches burgers have been classified as the best of the best. Now the burger was very good, but I have had better, so I was a bit disappointed. Went for lunch on Mizzou move in day with my wife and daughter. My co-worker went to Mizzou and said I should introduce her to a... More

Seriously. This is heaven. A few simple burgers, a coupla draft beers and an oddball bottle or two of interesting brews. Decent music or the game in the background with the sound of pool balls clacking and the burgers softly flapping down on wax paper squares...slap...slap...slap

Typical pool hall atmosphere with great food from the grill. Simple menu with a variety to choose from at reasonable prices. Great place for group gatherings and kids. Perfect for a quick bite to eat if they're aren't events in town.

While this place has quite the local following, I've never been impressed with the food or service. Seems like you have to be part of the Booches regulars to get any attention. And the food wasn't worth the wait.
