“Sliders and nostalgia are a good combo for eating!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Reminded me of the old days of Royal Castle, White Castle. But much better. Loved the onion rings and the burgers had a good taste, not just the fat taste. Enjoyed the simple ambiance and the good price for alot of food.

“Doesn't Live Up to its Hyped Reputation”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

My guess is that Hunter House was once a really cool place to hang out and get good burgers. The place was very dirty, but not in the charming greasy spoon dive kind of way. The staff was not pleasant and despite a considerable wait, neither our cheeseburgers or fries were even warm. How is that possible when you see them continuously loafing up the grill. Not with our wait or money.

“Great Food”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

They have one of the best sliders I have every had. The chili-cheese fries are great. I would strongly suggest this for family and a quick bit. One caution, they only accept cash.

“Sliders here!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

What can I say it's a great spot for a late night burger or just a quick bite. Fries and onion rings are also good. It's consistent and always tasty. You can't lose here.

“A Birmingham Staple”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

I've read some of the other reviews and I must say, people...get a grip. It's a hamburger joint....not Roast or the Lark. You know that going in. It's busy, always packed, (they even have a walk-up window), loud, etc, etc, etc., but they have friendly staff, great burgers, and milkshakes so thick you have to eat them with a spoon. You might even get to experience a "celebrity sighting."
