I ate here while waiting on my kids at the barber. I had seen this location many times and it looks like an old re purposed Waterburger. I had the Burger and Tater tots. They were not bad, and I did like the price, however, I have not been back. If your in the area and just need to grab... More

I do not like the food here. Everyone raves about the burgers and have no clue why. The building outside is probably the best part of this place.

We often stop here when we are in Temple. The burgers are consistently good and fresh. They are similar to but better than Whataburger. Fries are good. They are a little stingy with the ketchup, so 4 stars not 5.

The burger I had was very good. You are given the choice of fries, tater tots, or onion rings, also you can have half orders of two of the three. Another unusual choice is you can choose either mayo or Miracle Whip as well as the normal condiments.

If you are looking for the type of juicy burger that you can't help but make a mess with this is it!! Great fresh sides, and delicious old fashioned hamburgers. Service was great!

Passing through Temple, tried Rylander's. Burger was fresh, hot, good. Tater tots were good, french fries were ok. Big portion. Workers were friendly enough. Rest room is in back, you must go out of restaurant and worker has to open it for you. Had to wait until she was not busy.

One of the best burgers in Temple. There are a handful of places that still make burgers the old fashion way, and Rylander's is one of them. I'll definitely keep going back.

The burgers at Rylaner's are first class... They are made to order, always hot and taste great. This place has been around forever and is a great place to put on your list to visit.
