“A summer must!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I'm local and Townsend is a small town. Other than Subway and Pizza Hut, it's filled with a variety of mom and pop restaurants. When I go out of town, I always look for places like Burger Master. It's been there for a long time and the current owners are doing a great job. It seems to be clean and the food is good. It's right in the mix of all the campgrounds which makes walking to it on the paved bike trail a fun tradition. They're big on pets and offer a water bowl for your dogs to enjoy. They sell more ice cream than food, but don't let that stop you from eating there. I've only tried the chicken basket and it was really really good. I'm crazy about soft serve and that is their specialty. So delicious! Even their cones seem to be bigger and always fresh. I always get a kiddie cone and can't imagine eating a bigger size. Two things to know before you go: CASH ONLY! It always has been and I've witnessed some grumbling over this. There are about 4 banks 1 mile down the road with ATMs. The other thing is there's always a line and I wouldn't stop in if you're in a hurry. All the food is made to order and takes some time to make. That includes the ice cream. It's just a great, fun place to go and make memories and is a Townsend must!

“ICE CREAM!!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

BEST SOFT-SERVE ICE CREAM EVER!!!! Their Burgers and fries are really good to!! Food is always cooked to order so be prepared to wait a few minutes, they are always busy to. They give you lots of food for your money. Its a great, fun atmosphere for all ages to eat at. The staff is always super nice and friendly. Its outside which is great especially if you've just been swimming, hiking, gardening. You can even bring your Dogs, they do a thing called a "Fido" Bowl is a small vanilla ice cream with a milk bone in it for $0.50 They are a CASH ONLY business!!

“Wet from the Float Trip or Muddy from a Hike...”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This is a place with outdoor dining in a picnic like atmosphere! It is even next door to a Float Trip company (River Rat - yellow tubes)! We stopped there for ice-cream after our float trip. We had at our table a shake, dip cones, and chili cheese fries. They have hamburgers but we had already had our lunch prior to this stop.

Nothing like an ice-cream shack in the middle of the country side to sit a spell and let time pass :)

If you have children they're gonna love it!!!!

“Best chocolate soft serve in the South!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Best chocolate soft serve in the South! Burger Master is a simple walk-up, cash only joint. But great burgers and ice cream, and busy all summer long in the evenings.
