“Food was delicious, but waited 30+ minutes...”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

The food is good, but be prepared to wait awhile if they're busy. Waited 30 minutes yesterday to get a burger and fries, when I thought this place was somewhat quicker.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Co-workers of mine recommended we all go and I was not satisfied at all. Too greasy and really did not have a good flavor to the burger. This is probably my first negative review for a restaurant. Suffice to say, I won't be going back anytime soon here.

“Best burgers and fries in Richmond”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Carytown Burgers is a creative burger joint that is pretty inexpensive for what is offered. They have crazy burgers with countless toppings including salsa, avocado, onion rings, barbecue sauce, and on and on. The drinks are huge and endless refills. We also got a veggie burger that was phenomenal and a chicken sandwich that was just as good as the burgers. Great price for great sandwiches.

“Creative burgers at the right price!”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Carytown Burgers & Fries boasts down home good cooking with flavors from all over the country. They have everything from a chili cheese burger to a California inspired burger with avocado and veggies. The burgers are great, fries even better and Carytown is a sweet place to hangout! Be warned, however, service can take a while.

“Food over Ambiance”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

The burgers here are amazing; they are always at or near the top in any "best burger in Richmond" poll. I used to lived in the Museum District, so I would eat here several times a week. South of the Border, Greek Geek, and the Rodeo are my favorites. They give generous servings on the fires.

The outdoor seating overlooks a parking lot, and the interior may seem "dirty" to some, but I’ve never seen trash or old food as one reviewer stated. The lighting is a bit dark, so that may throw some people off.

Their dessert menu is suprisingly great! Cakes and pies are always sitting there in the cooler there tempting you.

The only complaint I have it that the folks taking you order seem to be annoyed at times if you don't know what you want right away.
