Just great burgers that taste home-made on buttered buns with home-made pickles and condiments, as well as great fries. More satisfying than Shake Shack and not as massive as the Tasty Burger. Also nice outdoor seating. Very friendly staff that cares about quality.

I was craving a burger so in I went. Service was very friendly. Place is clean. Burgers are a notch above fast food places. It's cooked once you order as well as the hand cut fries. Has all the fixings. Very small place so you have to either go early to grab a table or take it to go.

There are a lot of choices for burgers within a two block radius of this place. However, the sauce here is crack. The custard too!

Great food and service. Best place for burgers in Harvard Square area. I go there regularly and I've always had a great experience. The service is quick and and the staff members are friendly. Highly recommended!

Always busy. The food is fresh and well-prepared. Good menu variety focusing on burgers but offers sandwiches and salads too. Eat inside upstairs if it's cold (get ready for it) or outside if the sun's out. Prices are very reasonable, $5-$7 range. Service is quick. This is not gourmet dining, but they're good at what they do.

I had the double cheeseburger. The cheese is delicate but tasty, and the meat is simply delicious. The fries are nothing special, but the tastiness of the burger more than makes up for it. One of the best burgers I've had in a long while, overall.

I had a bit of time before my bus came after work, and was looking for a quick spot to satisfy my hunger. There was no line in Flat Patties, so I decided to go with that. The first thing I noticed was the reasonable price, especially for Harvard Square. Under $6 for a souped up burger is quite remarkable... More
