“Neighborhood joint”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

What can you say. People line up for these burgers, small slider size, You can smell the cooking for blocks. Most get them to go, very small spot but, they crank out these little sandwiches. Open late as many go to soak up the libations after too many.

“Better Than White Castles??”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Not exactly. But they were very very friendly. They were open late, and the food was fresh, and made to order...

“Like "Sliders"... you'll love Powers”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you like White Castle "sliders", you will love this place. They also make those tasty little hamburgers smothered in fresh onions (instead of the canned tiny onion tidbits). Typical menu items all fresh made to order, priced competitively. Forget the heartburn and try a bag full. You'll be glad you did.

“A third landmark restaurant visit in two days”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

A friend was visiting from out of town so I took her to all the landmark Ft. Wayne "counter" restaurants. Powers Hamburgers was our final stop. Definitely unique and you've had nothing like it before. Try it, you'll like it! I love that Ft. Wayne has kept these type of restaurants alive.

“Fort Wayne Diamond”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Great cheeseburgers; often compared to White Castle but there is no comparison; understand breakfast are good, but I've never had anything but cheese burgers
