While the service was good and the naming system for the burgers was hilarious, I wasn't overly impressed by the burger I got. Though it was well-presented and had lots of interesting ingredients, I found the meat quite flavourless, though it was juicy. Perhaps though...More

Had some great burgers! Very casual, very crowded but fun. You'll share the table with new friends. The many burger choices are very interesting and delicious! Perfect after our day at Fenway. Go Eat!

Can be a line, but worth a visit. Thematic burgers and decent sweet potato french fries. Get a frappe, not a milkshake.

These hamburgers are special. It starts up with beef that is well marbled, never dry, and always tasty. While the burgers can be dressed up in a variety of cheese and condiments, the main product is a very tasty burger. While it is crowded and...More

A Cambridge institution for decades, the Mr Bartley's burger experience is worth the trip into Harvard Square. There's almost any imaginable variation that you could want, and the satisfaction of allowing a dribble on your chin fits right in to the experience. it's often crowded,...More
