“Great burgers, average fries...but would still go back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Had the BBQ burger tonight and my wife had the MGB burger, both were 1/2 pound, cooked exactly like we asked. Both burgers were absolutely fantastic. The only thing keeping this rating from being a 5 - excellent was the fries that accompanied the burgers. For such wonderful gourmet burgers, the fries are standard, krinkle-cut everyday french fries. These burgers deserve better! Service was very good and the bar/restaurant is decorated with a sports theme. Lots of autographed pictures and memorable sports moments from in time thanks to film. A little out of the way, located next to the Days Inn, and outside of downtown Holland, but worth the very short drive. You definitely go back though! They also have a 2 1/2 pound burger and fries and if you can eat them in 25 minutes, you'll get a shirt! Good luck with that!!!

“Generous portions, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We had four different meals: a Big Fish sandwich, 2 different burgers, and the wings, and only could finish one meal. The portions were very generous and filling, and the server was respectful and prompt. We weren't sure what to make of the restaurant from the name, but found it delicious and fine. We ate outside and shortened our wait time, but I don't think the wait would have been too long anyway. I would highly recommend this restaurant for those looking for interesting and good variations on standard fare.

Both my husband and I got The Big GOOG burger, and we added a fried egg to it.....oh man, can you say "Heaven". Wow. It was awesome, juicy and very very tastey. The service was awesome as well. Will keep going back, need to try all the food there....yum yum.

“Good choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Based on the reviews of this restaurant, we decided to check Googs out. We were not disappointed! Burgers may be their specialty, but I ordered the mac & cheese (it actually comes with sausage but I asked them to leave it out) and it was delicious! The rest of my family had their thin crust pizza and they loved it. It's a comfortable place with a sports theme. The service is excellent.

“Fair place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Waitress did a good job. We were seated right away and everything happened in a timely manner. They were pretty full at the time we were there. Two of us had burgers, one had steak, one had chicken strips, one had tacos and one had some kind of a chicken wrap. Burgers were average tasting and did not come to our table hot. The chicken strips, steak and tacos received good reviews, the wrap was pretty bland, even with added sauce. All of the food looked very good and our service was good. Setting was clean and neat, but the food we had was just ok.
