“Where the Locals Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

This little place doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's all a part of the old-fashioned atmosphere. Many people carry out. Others, like us, sit outside on picnic tables in the shade. All of us stand in line to order and then for our number to be called. It goes very fast, just enough time to chat with others in line. The burgers and fries are delicious, but there is plenty else on the menu. One burger is fine for a light eater; otherwise order two ($1.40 each). Cheap, good eating. Limited hours,11:00-1:30 and 4:00 to ?; no Sunday.

“Inexpensive and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

While traveling we like to go where the locals go- the "holes in the wall". Well Just Hamburgers did not disappoint! The food was ridiculously cheap and the food delicious. We fed our family of 3 for $9! There is no indoor seating (no need to tip a waitperson) and the food is a tad greasy, but we would definitely go back!

“Tasty Burgers and Local Legend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

After moving to the area last year, we began hearing from everyone that one of our food destinations HAD to be Just Hamburgers. The hype turned out to be real -- the burgers are amazing! Definitely more along the old-school, greasy spoon style of eatery with quick (and cheap) counter service and burgers served on warmed buns with plentiful fries. They feature a different special each night of the week (chicken finger basket is a great night to go). There is usually a line, but I've never had to wait longer than 10 minutes to order and get my food.

“Midwest Burger Gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

The double cheeseburger from here on July 1, 2013, rivaled the burger I had at The Burger Joint in NYC weeks ago. It may not be Pat LaFrieda beef, but it definitely is DEE-LISH!!!

The service was quick and the burgers were delicious and hot unlike some other fast food places in our area. Will stop there again when I'm in Paxton.
