I stopped for lunch. As soon as I walked in the door, I knew this was the place for me - loved it. I had the bacon-wrapped meatloaf - it was great. My daughter had the hamburger and enjoyed that as well. My meatloaf was served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. The potatoes were great. The veggies were so-so.... More

After long runs at Delaware State Park, the guys and gals of Team Possum head to Hambo for amazing breakfast/lunch. I'm a big fan of the omelets and burgers. And you of course can not visit without finishing the meal with a warm cinnamon roll. The atmosphere is very nostalgic and worth a first trip that I guarantee will turn... More

The four of us had some quality food for brunch. From sausage gravy and biscuits, the Hangover Burger, eggs, bacon & toast to a three egg omelet. Quick, polite service from Tonaya kept the coffee flowing.

My son had a "hangover burger" that included bacon egg and cheese and he said it was a game changer. So great! The perfect end to a long day of running around the lacrosse field. He could not have been happier. I also enjoyed my burger (something I rarely eat). It is must visit if you are in Delaware, OH

We were with a large group and stopped in for lunch. The restaurant is truly an old fashioned counter style diner, so we all were not able to fit inside, but they had enough seating outside to accommodate the rest of our group. Service was prompt and friendly, and while it did take a little while to get our order,... More

Haven't been to Delaware (where I grew up in the 1960's) for nearly 30 years so I had to get a cinnamon roll. They now have outdoor seating as well as the original U-shaped counters. Trip down memory lane!

No tables, just old-fashioned diner seating. Quick service, cheap food. NOT for you if you're on a low-calorie, low-fat, low-carbs, low-anything diet. I had breakfast there for three mornings and discovered their old-fashioned biscuits and gravy. Thick gravy, big biscuits. Good job, Hamburger Inn!

This restaurant is so awesome. Sarah was very friendly and fast. Great food! One of our favorite places in Delaware. Corned beef hash is from scratch. The hand cut fries are like fair fries. Delicious!

I would have liked to give a good reason to visit here as I do like these types of restaurants. However my experience was subpar at best. First i did not be get what I ordered despite repeatedly saying what I wanted. Then they don't ask how you want it cooked. So basically the burgers are always well done. The... More
