I used to work in Columbia, and Booches was my favorite place for lunch. I had a group of friends who ate their at least several times a week. I can't even guess how many "e-grills" I have eaten there. (An "e-grill" is a cheese burger with everything, the onions grilled.) People who once were in Columbia because of the U of MO. return periodically for a football game or another reason. Booches is a place they always come back to. I ate there so often I often times had something else other than a e-grill, like a "Wurst the right way" of maybe a "Fat Freddy." You can't get french fries but whatever you order it will probably be to your liking. If you are there on Friday, they usually have a good soup. Their chili is good also.

This is a pool hall that happens to have a small grill but they use fresh stuff to make some great little burgers. This is just like the way my Grandma made them and they are great. Choices are very simple and cash is king so plan accordingly.
Although I love pool (billiards for the sophisticated types) I still have not played here.

What can you say? It's a landmark in downtown Columbia, just blocks from the University of Missouri. If you like inexpensive GREAT burgers served on paper — and served in a place that has billiard and pool tables and St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia on the wall, this is your place.

Great burgers. Cheap too! Service was good too. It is a Columbia staple and is not going away anytime soon. You will NOT find a better burger in Columbia.

This is a friendly place with good service. Cold beer and burgers as well as a Reuben sandwich and hot dogs. No fries, just chips for a side. No frills but delicious. Bring cash! They do not take cards!
