    Terrible service my waitress was very inattentive. I would not recommend this to any of my family or friends. The food was awful and so was the service. The greeting was even awful when we walked in the two hosts were arguing. Won't be going back!

    The staff is friendly and the food is great. There was a mix up with our reservation, but we were seated immediately anyway. Be sure to have the fried green tomatoes if they are on the menu! Also, the burger with the burnt ends and Caroline slaw was just about perfect: for it it should have been on a bun instead so on grilled sliced bread. Also, great place to go before a concert or event at Sprint Center.

    We had 6 people crammed into a booth when lots of tables were available and we had a reservation. The actual burger was great, but the toppings were awful. The fried green tomato topping was way too small for the size of the burger and the parmesan crisp was awful. Our server was fabulous. Needless to say, we weren’t overly impressed.

    As much as a hassel Power & Light can be, especially with the road construction going on right now, I would put those concerns aside to go back to BRGR. Been wanting to try this place for awhile and it didn't disappoint. I had the BRGR burger, which was cooked to perfection and mighty tasty. My date had the Juicy Lucy and was also quite pleased. Truffle fries and homemade ketchup made a delicious side. Especially loved the dusting of cheese atop the fries. And we also got a side of the mac & cheese. My date loved it, while I thought it was just okay. Very creamy, but not as flavorful as I would've hoped. Great service, cool decor and bar. Definitely worth a second and third visit.

    This restaurant has great food, very good staff (thanks Shaun), and a clean well decorated building. The restrooms were quite unique, well appointed, and very clean. The only negative would be the house fly which kept biting my wife's ankle and the one particular front window which had a fly amusement park going and a population between 30 and 50. I'm sure it was a one time, summer evening thing and then moved on to the next venue. Don't let this small annoyance stop you as the food was prepared perfectly.

    luvburgers
    Dined on 7/8/2014
    My expectations were high since we had tried their other location. The onion rings and truffle fries were just as delicious as always. However the hamburgers at this location were unsatisfactory. The meat had lots of cartilage or gristle. It had a smidgeon of melted cheese and the buns were dry and did not taste fresh. The onion straws on the burger were cold. I took a couple bites and took it home so that my husband could give me his opinion. He agreed that it was not a quality burger. We will not be going back.

    This was my second dining experience at BRGR and I really like the turkey burger I got. The mac and cheese could have used more flavor and the same with the black and white cake. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and will likely go back based on the ambience and quality of the burgers.

    They didn't make us wait for the entire party to arrive before seating, which was great, because we were not coordinated enough for that. The place was loud and busy, but it was a Friday night at P&L and there was a free concert later that evening, so that wasn't unexpected at all (hence why I used OpenTable to make a reservation). I had the Sangria, which was pretty good, and my burger was delicious. I also had the tots and an order of the Sourdough with an array of spreads. The bacon jam was interesting...sortof reminded me of meatloaf.

    Dined on 6/17/2014
    I really want to like this restaurant. I eat out frequently and have dined at this restaurant four times. (I keep thinking it will get better every time, but it doesn't). The service is very poor-having to flag down a waiter to order drinks, having food delivered and the waiter not checking back to see how our food was until dropping off the bill, having the waiter spill drinks on my head, etc. The food is pretty good, but is never prepared how I ordered it (burger not cooked correctly, ordering a plain burger and having it come with mustard, pickles and cheese, having a sandwich with soggy bread, etc.). I have given this restaurant four chances, but have yet to have a good experience. I can't recommend it at this point.

    the food was amazing. i wish it was just slightly less expensive. $13.50 for a burger a la carte is a bit much. if it was $13.50 with a side, i think it would be a bit better.

    My family and I went to BRGR for dinner before a show at Sprint Center. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The noise level was what I expected, this is a busy place on a Friday evening. We each ordered a burger. My son's was undercooked, but the rest were fine. My fries were cold, so our server got me slightly warmer, but much saltier, fries. Overall, we had a good burger and a decent experience. When I've been here previously, I had an excellent burger and a great experience.

    We started off with an appetizer of the pretzel cheese dip. It was thicker than expected and had good flavor, but also felt like there was something missing, but 2 pretzels & chips started off our large dinner. Next, we had the C2 burger and the Porchetta burger. Both were delicious - C2 was extra spicy and the porchetta was good, but thin. The outstanding part of the dining experience was the trio of sides - onion rings (3), tator tots (truffle), and sweet potato fries (crispy) with dipping sauces - love the dipping sauces! There's no way you'll leave hungry! For the negative, drinks took way too long to get to the table - over 10 minutes waiting and they weren't that busy. Our server was okay not great. Enjoyed it and will return.

    This was my first time coming here after my brother raved about it for months. He went to the one in Kansas. The service was just okay. Our server didn't make me feel warm or like I even belonged there. The food was the major let down. My brother's hamburger was sub par and my chili fondue tasted like it came from a can.

    We had drinks here with friends last month and were so impressed by the service we went back for my son's birthday. He is a big burger fan, and we were not disappointed. Had the "small" wedge salad, and probably should have stopped there. We went on to burgers, I had the pork sandwich, and we shared the trio of fries. Everything was delicious! Service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!
