Waited 15 mins or longer for a burger and onion rings, the burger was a cold hockey puck. The onion rings were hot, but the batter was a little gooey inside. So disappointed, as I have wanted to try this place for a while, always...looks busy! Won't be back. There are better burger places for fast food. :( I so wanted to give you a great review tooMore

Seriously.....one of the **best burger** places!! "Old-skhool" classics BURGERS/SHAKES--- very tasty. The rest of the stuff [fries, fish & chips, chicken sands] are OK, but never order anything but burgers. \ The "service" isn't the best and out of prob like 10 visits [2-3 burger...orders] they made 3 major mistakes [leaving burger out of order, etc]...kinda NPC like??? ..........great burgers though..........More

Ordered 6 sandwiches and fish n chips. Got home and one chicken burger was missing. Called them and was told that we could pick up another one within two weeks and we would get one free burger. Its not free. We already paid for it...

Was able to enjoy their hamburger on a gluten free bun- what a treat! The bun was soft and large to accommodate the burger- will definitely return here!

I used to visit occassionally over 10 years ago as student. Delicious! I still remember the waffle fries, the layout of the establishment, the need for 50 napkins, and the center fireplace. I haven't been to BHam in years and no immeidate plans but when...I do, a stop at Boomers is a MUST.More

I know this place is busy because of the sale on burgers, but there is no excuse for such bad service. Ordered teriyaki chicken burgers on line, drove 5 miles to get them, waited an extra 15 minutes and came home with two cold plain...hamburgers. What a waste of time and gas.More

The service was good but the food not so much. The quality in the food has gone way downhill. I ordered fried mushrooms. They were so over cooked that they were burned and the mushrooms were shriveled and dry. Yuck.....burgers weren't as good as they...used to be wither.More

Just a simple burger was $3.99. I had onion rings and fried mushrooms plus the burger. Almost $12 for one person with no drink. Add tip $14. Mushrooms delicious because I love mushrooms. Onion rings, fried... Burger, well not anything to write home about. It...was a quick lunch that was expensive to me. Service was fine. Girl brought me plenty of ketchup was I was grateful for.More

Burgers are great, they offer vegetarian options as well as meals for kids. I recommend the bacon guacamole burger or the mushroom Swiss. I’ve been to this location multiple times and while the food is up to par, the employees are always so unfriendly and...look absolutely miserable. I don’t know if they’re understaffed or they simply don’t enjoy working there. It makes the experience not great.More

When we were here, they were running a special for $3.19 for all sandwiches. For the price great burger, waffle fries very tasty. The chocolate malts was delicious, albeit a little small. Would have gotten higher mark's, but my wife's hot chicken teriyaki was not...warm at all...More

I live in the area and have always wanted to try Boomer's. We went one fine day to get our carry-out. First, do the burgers...we had fish. Not good. But what really bummed us out was that they package the meals in polystyrene!! Really?!?! It's...a drive in and all food is packed. In today's age and in Bellingham, we were aghast that this business is still using environmental packaging. Will NOT go again!More
