About
Beckett’s Burger Bar, in downtown Bowling Green, is a family-owned business that caters to both the college and the community. George and Amy Strata purchased the business in 2007 and, in 2012, George's parents, George and Phina, joined them in ownership. True to the name “family business,” you will always find one of them or their children taking orders, washing dishes, working in the kitchen, tending bar, or socializing with the customers. The Strata family considers all their visitors to be part of the "Beckett Family." Beckett’s Burger Bar’s menu is tailored to local tastes; you are invited to come in and try favorites such as The Beckett, The Falcon, or BYOB (Build Your Own Burger). The

Ordered shrimp tacos, which we have ordered several times. Out of soft tacos so used very dry flatbread. Ugh! Totally ruined the recipe. We spoke to manager who gave us 30% discount. Hardly sufficient to account for flatbread being inedible so all we had were...two hard-shelled tacos. Needless to say we are very disappointed in this experience.More

Becketts has really good food and a great selection of beers on tap. Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Since they moved to this bigger location, we eat at Beckett's a lot more often! I am looking forward to trying the Bourbon Bar in the back of the...restaurant.More

We were in town for a funeral and grabbed a bite at Beckett’a for lunch. I ordered the shrimp tacos with the sweet potato fries and my wife had a burger with the seasoned fries. My wife also ordered a sweet tea. Her sweet tea...was not sweet at all, and our server had to bring sweetener. My wife’s burger and fries were decent, and my sweet potato fries were outstanding. However the big disappointment was the shrimp tacos. The tacos were served on pita bread rather than tortillas and there were only 2 shrimp in each taco. They also covered it in cheese. All I could taste was pita bread and cheese - honestly a huge let down. I guess I know now not to order tacos at a burger place.More

We hear it is a good place, but we chose not to wait that long. We even planned a special detour on our trip from Columbus, OH to Rochester Hills, MI to eat here. People out the door. It was like they had a sign...that said "free food". This place is too small to handle the business. I wonder how much business they are losing by staying too small.More

I ordered a plain cheeseburger and requested to have it on rye toast. I was told that they did not have any rye toast so I then asked for the patty to be placed on lettuce. My burger was very visually unappealing. It was also...placed on top of a wilted lettuce piece and not as a sandwich. The burger tasted like rotten meat. I was also surprised that we were charged for the club soda. Most establishments do not charge for this. Thank you.More

Great little place on Main Street. Lots of TVs to watch the game. Was told this was the best place in Bowling Green to get a burger and they were true to their word! Western burger was great and came with home made chips too....Waitress was really nice as well.More

the burgers are pricey so they better be good. I had the amigo burger minus the avocado & my son had the mac & cheese burger. he said you could barely taste the mac & cheese but mine was tasty. And we got a side...of mac and cheese that was really good. I think the burgers come with saratoga type chips. ask for a side of BBQ sauce to dip them in. They could've got a better rating had the service been better. They were friendly, but not so attentive. Luckily we went during a less busier time, otherwise I could see waiting a long period.More

Have visited Beckett's often since they opened in BG! They have good food at good prices, and great specials! They can be very busy at times, and both old and young visit alike! Great Black bean burger!

Great place to get beers and some burgers. Bar food, but good bar food. Owners are awesome people, and the staff surrounding is just as great. My spot for drinking beers.

We had lunch here today after our band (Jenison Marching Band ...woohoo) performed for the BOA Regionals. Someone who has a child at BGSU recommended it to us, so glad we stopped in. Such great burgers, very juicy and fun menu items! Delicious! It far...off main drag, not a huge restaurant, more of a bar feel. Great food and service!More
