The restaurant uses a lot of local products, including some of their beef. The burgers were delicious; the fries seem to be freshly cut and prepared and although a little heavy, they were excellent as well. A Caesar salad was average but a reasonable alternative to the burger. I definitely recommend it if you are in the downtown mall area and want a pretty quick, delicious burger.

Unbelievably slow service combined with poorly prepared burgers made this a real disappointment. Far better options on the downtown mall.

We had lunch at the Citizen's Burger Bar. The hamburgers were really good. There are many varieties of meat and toppings, and they serve locally produced grass-fed beef. The burger I had was juicy, flavorful, and cooked just right. I went for the multi-grain bun, which was a little dry, but otherwise it was a good hamburger.

The price is a little higher than what you might normally expect to pay for a hamburger, but the ingredients are high quality. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. It's definitely not an everyday place, but it's a great choice for a gourmet burger.

We really enjoyed the service and the atmosphere, as well as the beers on tap. The vegan burger needs some reworking (it just sort of turns to mush), but the sweet potato fries were excellent. We weren't crazy about the style of buns that were used, but the burgers were good.

My husband and I had a very good meal at this restaurant. We weren't in the mood for a "fancy" or big meal, but didn't want fast food/chain restaurant either. We both had burgers, which were great- all natural, grass fed beef!! The rolls were fantastic and from a local bakery. LOVED the onion rings. The service was great, and everyone was very friendly. Great atmosphere, had a grown-up sports bar feel, but saw two tables of "girls" only. Relatively new restaurant I believe. We aren't from the area, but would definitely go back.
