The burger and fries were flavorful and it was good to have beverage options (e.g., both soda and beer). The size of the helping was plentiful but the overall price of the meal was a bit much for a burger place--about $20 for one person!

This is a perfect example of how poorly trained and poorly performing customer service personnel can ruin an experience. My son and I visited in November for lunch. As we began our order, the friendly cook who was on register gave way to an obviously unhappy young lady who messed up our order (I had requested a pretzel roll and... More

Burger night happens at least 3 times a month. Usually at 5 Guys or Boardwalk, each of which has a location in the Springfield area. Each place offers burgers and fries that are a cut above fast food and charges extra for toppings like cheese and bacon. BGR is the most expensive, with the basic burger starting at $7. Also,...

This is not a fast food place, there is no drive thru, and it doesn't compete with Wendy's or MacDonalds. The burgers are at least 1/3 lb., and the hamburger meat is better. So, not comparable in value to drive thru burger joints. Decor is modern, place was clean, even had free hand sanitizer dispenser at the foyer. Sizes of... More

Came here with my boyfriend to redeem our lobster roll groupon deals. I ordered first, asking for the lobster as a salad bowl (+$1) and paid the extra charges gladly. Knowing my bf wanted a burger instead of the lobster roll, I called ahead to make sure we could order other menu items and use the paid value of the... More

It was time for lunch, and I was running errands, so I stopped in to try it out.I chose the vegetarian burger with lettuce and tomatoes, and it was juicy and satisfying, not at all like the cardboard veggie burgers that are sold in the supermarket freezer sections. I liked the high quality bun and the choice of Honest unsweetened... More

Was in the mood for a quality burger and BGR was highly rated in Trip Advisor and other sources. I had my burger with pepper jack cheese and the normal fixings. It was cooked perfectly, very tasty and very filling. My daughter had ordered the grilled chicken sandwich and while waiting the manager came over and apologized that they were... More

The burgers are fantastic, and the service was very good as well. While it might be somewhat on the expense side, it is worth the trip to try it out! They strive to make the burger the way you want it, and it isn't cluttered with tons of 'extras'. (lettuce, onions, etc) The fries are delicious, and the shakes are... More

I'm not a burger person, but my family really enjoys this place. French fries are good. Price is a bit steep for burgers, but you're paying for the atmosphere.
