Part of the BGR chain. Good to have a burger place in Potomac.

BGR has specialty burgers, but if you just want plain burger or cheeseburger, or whatever you want, you can build your own. Dunno if other reviewers missed that on menu (build your own)?

Place is clean and efficient. They also have one of the Coke mixing machines where you can create just about any type of Coke family type of soda and mix (e.g. - Coke Zero w/rasberry flavor).

This is the best place in town and maybe all of DC (maybe all of the country!) to get a burger. Plus the atmosphere is so much fun! One can eat indoors or outside. It is a fun experience in addition to the great burger. The staff is great!

I was hoping shake shack or even swenson's...I had a burger that was a step up from five guys. Very good for the area but I was surprised about the hype. Didn't live up to it.

We recently visited our family in Potomac MD.

It was our eldest grandson's birthday (11 yrs old) so of course it was his choice of where to go for lunch. He chose The Burger Joint. His younger sister and brother agreed.

Now with a name like this, the place would not be at the top of the grandparental eatery list, but so what? It was what the kids wanted so there we went.

Our expectations were not high but we were pleasantly surprised. The place was definitely OK, The variety of food was good. The Wellington Burger piled high with mushrooms was excellent. And what can I say about the high tech drink dispenser that our grandson demonstrated to us. .
Our grandchildren were happy and so were we. All in all, a fine family outing .

It surprises me when people critique a burger place as though it were a Steak Palace.

This restaurant has counter service and not much in the way of atmosphere. The young staff who take your order are pleasant and helpful, but that doesn't make up for the limited menu of beef burgers. They have a wider variety of alternative burgers, but if you're going for a traditional beef burger, we were not impressed. In addition to our burgers, we ordered sweet potato fries, one of their specialties, and fried onion rings. Of them all, the onion rings were the best. The burgers and sweet potato fries were just average, not good enough to make our family visit again. For the quality and type of service, the prices were a little on the high side when compared to similar eateries in the area.
