Located high above the James River on the Lynchburg Downtown "boardwalk" (concrete actually...) Bootleggers has a terrific view of the valley while you're enjoying your meal. The burgers are large, perfectly cooked, and delicious. And don't miss their signature fries! We also enjoyed their "adult...More

If you are looking for a quiet atmosphere, this isn't your location!! It's busy and lively and can get loud... but that's part of the atmosphere. A good place to get together with your friends! The burgers and salads were huge! If there is something...More

We were visiting for a few days while our son was visiting Liberty University. We were very impressed with the food, service and the deep fried oreo cookie dessert was heavenly! We will visit again when we're in the area.

This spot is noted for its beer and burgers, but, lacking much of an appetite, I ordered the Parmesan truffle fries and a cider. Not desiring a beer and not in the mood for wine,I was delighted by the cider. The fries were a generous...More

The area has a fun atmosphere, the decor theme is terrific. Definitely try the onion rings - we really enjoyed them. They have a great selection of burgers - and cooked to perfection. Add this to your places to try next time you're in Lynchburg.

They have a pretty great selection of burgers and drink. The burgers are pretty good but can be expensive since they do not come with any sides. The drinks are great but are a bit on the pricey side.
