Thankfully, we beat the lunch rush during a weekday. No pressure to hurry to order, but the menu on the wall was still difficult to maneuver. My first visit. Upon receiving my food, the burger was pink in the middle. Bummer, I should have ordered well done. My fault, perhaps. However, I also was not asked how I wanted my... More

I went to Honest Abe´s for a quick lunch based on its number one ranking on this website. The restaurant is clean, though I had the decor was a bit sparse. The menu is printed on the wall and as a first-timer it wasn´t easy for me to really get a clear idea of what was being offered. There was... More

I ate a vegan patty with the special Caesars burger. I am grateful that they have a vegan patty. It was really tasty and fresh. I also really appreciated the cashier/order taker and manager answering my questions about the food. For example, the bread has eggs in it and they offered to put it on a bed of spinach salad....

I've eaten a lot of burgers in a lot of places but this just edged out in front as my favourite. Lovely atmosphere and funny thins about Lincoln on the walls. Fries were lovely but not quite traditional enough for me but my hubby loved them. Great value and great food...

Prior to a recent home game we had decided to eat something downtown. While walking to the game we stopped at Honest Abe's. As advertised, they serve one of the best burgers we had ever eaten. It was cooked to our specifications and was juicy and tender along with all of the trimmings. Outstanding!

Luckily I had already reviewed the menu and knew what I was going to order - they have so many different types of burgers, you could easily waste your entire lunch break on picking what you'd like to eat! I'd have to add a couple days of cardio just to be able to sleep soundly at night. Great burgers, awesome... More

The burgers here are fabulous and are made from grass-fed beef. You can get a gluten-free bun for $.50 extra -- or do what I do and ask for the burger without a bun. They'll serve it on a bed of lettuce/spinach with the sauces on the side, and you can eat it with a fork and knife like a... More
