“Great food, great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Foster's is an easy go to for a good burger and the best fresh squeezed lemonade. The staff is always pleasant and the food is always good.

“Nice little burger place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

This place is located on a corner. There is a train station right across the street. When you walk in there are bistro tables on the right and a bar on the left. There are tables and booths at the back of the restaurant. You order at the counter, they give you a number. You pick where you want to sit and place your number in this stand on the table and your food is brought to you except for the drinks. They have a soda fountain and brewed tea that you have to go get on your own. There is a game room in the back as well. We ordered the hamburger mine was a little too charred. My husbands bun kept falling apart. The fries are hand cut. The food is served in a basket. I saw a lot of folks getting shakes but I didn’t try one. I don’t like the fact that they put the tomato, lettuce, pickles, mayo, mustard etc. on the bottom of the burger. It was good, similar to five guys and the burger is bigger than five guys. I thought it was a little pricy. Two burgers, fries and a drink were over $20.00. This will stay on my return list. I will most likely go back sometime.

“Foster's is always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Foster's Grill always has good food and service. The workers are always pleasant.

One time after hiking all day and stopping there for a beer sitting outside to watch the trains come and go at the train station across the tracks, they brought a bowl of water out for my dog! How considerate!

The hamburgers and fries are my favorite and truly they are always, always good!

Love the trains coming and going. Always makes me smile when they come in because you cannot hear a thing other than the train whistle and the noise of the train on the tracks. I always think why am I sitting right next to the train tracks when you cannot hold a conversation?

Always fun and relaxing.

“Hot dogs reign”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Want the best hot dog and fries....loaded with mustard, relish and chili ? This is your luncheon destination. Burgers are grilled to perfection, never greasy and plenty of lemonaide or choice of drinks....They have fresh baked cookies and if you're not watching your waistline...try one of their chocolate milkshakes.....Excellent food and lots to choose from; great place to meet a friend for lunch...

“Great burgers and fries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Get burgers the old fashioned way...cooked to order. Nice home town feel with an out door patio to enjoy the evening and watch the trains come in with the daily commuter's if that is what you enjoy! :)
