I have only visited this place once without having to wait a minimum of 45 minutes to be seated, and they do not take reservations. I truly can't understand how their waiting area is actually larger than the restaurant area itself, given the length of the lines of people waiting to eat there. They do make some very large and tasty burgers though, and it is worth visiting.

After my husband saw an episode of Man VS Food featuring the Thurman Cafe and their amazing burgers, we just had to try it! Although it was quite a jaunt to get there from the OSU area, we were very impressed with the food and prices! Can't wait to visit again!

The burger was ok, could cook one just like that at home, but I will say the wings were to die for. Loved them!

Monster sized burgers in a small town bar atmosphere. I'm glad we tried it. Lots of topping choices so let your imagination run wild.

Our friends that live in Columbus were raving about the burgers here, so we were very excited to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Great burgers and fries, in a cute little greasy spoon cafe. Would highly recommend.
