Having heard the advertisements on the radio re "the best burger in Frederick", we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is very small & narrow. The bar is on the right, and tables line the left wall. It's a tad dark & dreary....More

Almost missed this eatery situated below street level. Great burgers, tuna melt, and chili. Loved the cozy atmosphere. Be sure to visit the restrooms for a good laugh.

This place is one of those places you just have to try when in town. The price is right and you will get plenty of food. It's a little joint that is below grade and you will miss it if you are not looking. When...More

We stopped on Saturday night and expected to wait but we were served drinks (beer) immediately and the food (burgers) didn’t take long either. Tuesday, our server, was very quick and very personable. We will be back when we are in the area! 👍

We have lived in Frederick for over 25 years, but have never been to Wags, although we've heard of it, and it wins the local "best burger" award year after year. So we went last week. We were disappointed. We each had the "Wags Burger"...More

This review is from a person who has never been here before, so I had no expectations of what I would get. First, the restaurant is in a basement. We walked in and we could barely squeeze through the bar patrons to find a table....More
