Fist time diners at this Pru location before Red Sox game. Burgers were excellent as were fries. I had a cucumber sofa which was exquisite. My vegetarian daughter had the chopped kale salad and avocado humus which I finished - both excellent. Service spotty - two items omitted from order at not too busy time period so no excuse.

The restaurant itself is very stylish with tiles and dark colours. Seating is on normal chairs or in booths - for larger groups as well. I had a burger which was reaally good and an amazing oreo shake. Service was friendly but nothing special. Certainly worth visiting!

We stopped here for lunch and found the staff very accommodating. The burgers we had were delicious and served hot and attractively. They had great (I think) home made chips with the meal and would definitely go back to try some other options. They do have salads, tacos and some interesting appetizers. There is a full bar area and plenty... More

Meh. Husband saw on a Food Network Best of... super disappointing. Had a classic 5Napkin and sliders. Kinda boring and dry. Fries were the best thing about the lunch. Service was good, though.

Tons of better burger places in the area. It's not bad, just expensive for what it is. They do have a palmetto cheese burger that's on point. Getting that with tater tots is your best bet.

For a burger restaurant there wasn't a lot of variety burger wise. I was expecting big menus with lots of burgers to choose from and much more, unfortunately there wasn't a lot to choose from. The food was expensive for what we got, I don't mind paying more if it's worth it but honestly, I've had better burgers for half... More

Went there fir a fast bite. Nice setting with a retro atmosphere. The Korean Burguer was great, real Kimchi sauce....fries also very nice...great selección of beers....on the downside service was slow (and it was nearly empty) and a bit pricy albeit with good quality value....would come back again for fine Burguer.

This place had a great atmosphere and our server, Daniel, took excellent care of us. I had a Garden Burger and my companion had a 5 Napkins Burger. Both of these were huge serves but really well prepared and presented. We just walked in off the street and were seated immediately which was a real plus as it was late... More

This place is well described in its name. The meals are quick, large and tasty. We have been here a few times and it is consistently good if you want a great on tap beer and burger or try the fish tacos which are great.

Thank Papoon

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
