First impressions do make a difference! The greeter was less than helpful. I had registered for your so called "wait list" and asked for seating with my name. She replied that they didn't take reservations. I explained about the "wait list" and she shrugged her shoulders and said "whatever". We said we were waiting for another couple and she said we were welcomed to sit at the bar. No menus, no inquiry as to how long, nothing. After a few minutes I asked if we could please have a table and was shown to one. The couple we were waiting for arrived a few minutes later and asked for us, but she didn't remember and said she couldn't help them just shrugging her shoulders. They arrived at our table slightly annoyed. Luckly we were in sight.
The waitress was efficient and friendly. The food was uneven. My wife's steak burger was great. The onion rings too. The fast cow burger was nothing special. There was no response from the person in my party ordering the chicken sandwich. Maybe our food would have been tastier had the evening started off in a more service oriented manner?

The service was very slow. One persons food never came out. I requested to put a table together and the waiter refused. Even though other big parties had done the same thing.

Ate here on a busy Saturday night. I put myself on the waitlist and that helped get us a table pretty quickly. Our server was very personable and attentive. We ordered the burgers which were great and also the pick three menu option. We chose tater tots, fries and truffle fries. It was probably too much for the two of us, but a great deal to share with a group of people! Definitely will come back with friends

Food was very good, but our waitress seemed a bit disinterested and made a couple mistakes with our order. Overall I would recommend because the burgers are so good (and unique). Note we went early so I imagine it is much more crowded/noisy later in the evening.

Always a great experience. Burgers top notch and lots of choices, fish fillet & chips was excellent, and build-your-own Mac &a cheese very unique and excellent too. Add to that a top flight of beer choices and this place never disappoints. Tip - use the Open Table "wait list" option for BRGR and skip the wait.

This place is one of my favorite right before an event at P&L. Their beer list is pretty good, but for "beer snobs" it's all draft or cans (bottles will be gone everywhere soon FYI). The menu is just that burgers just about anyway you imagine them and some tasty sides. Never had a bad burger and the sweet potatoe tots are great.
The main reason I return here, as anywhere is the staff. If they aren't good I bolt. And I followed one of my favorite servers in KC, Janine, here so I'll be back. But the weekday crowd is thin if there isn't a concert or game at the Sprint Center.

The waitress was sneaky with saying "do you want fries or tots with that?" After we ordered our meals, which implied they were included. It was only after we asked that she said they weren't. I'm sure it's an up selling technic, but it made me not want to come back because I knew what she was doing and it's really shady. Be up front about what people are ordering.

While visiting KC, and revising plans during a major series of storms, we walked to BRGR from our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, and the excellent service from our waiter who also happened to give us great suggestions for other KC restaurants. Both the burger and the short rib tacos were very tasty, and the sweet potato fries were fresh and crisp. The highlight may have been the brussell sprouts dish, a unique blend of ingredients including capers. Beer selection was excellent. For a sports bar like setting, the food exceeded our expectations.

Love the variety of drinks they have here. We each had something different and it was all very good. We split a burger (which was huge) and the trio of French fries, tots and onion straws. Very Very good but even though we split it it was still a lot of food. Would highly recommend.

A group of eight of us had a great meal at BRGR. It was extremely busy because of a big concert at Sprint (glad we had reservations!), yet the waitress did an excellent job of taking care of us. It was the fist visit for most of our group, but it won't be their last. Thanks.

The girls and their parents LOVED BRGR!! Everyone thought the burgers were amazing!! I would say that the Juicy Lucy was one of the best burgers I have had in my entire life! The staff did a fantastic job of serving our large tables. The adult beverages were really tasty too!! The atmosphere was unique and very fun! We will definitely visit BRGR when we are in Kansas City in the future.

Food was delicious! Unique and fun variety to choose from. I had the Funky Chicken and sweet potato fries. Teenage girls had build your own Mac n cheese which they described as -"creamy goodness"! Onion rings were huge, yummy! We ran a little late for our reservation due to traffic, but after talking with them they held our reservation of 9! Thank you! Waitress was super helpful & nice, and food was out very promptly! Would definitely go back.

The location is excellent; so close to downtown venues. The service was attentive and fast for the most part.
The food was unfortunately nothing more than average. I had the "new BRGR" burger with fries. (Fries and all the other sides are a la carte). The burger was soaked in grease. I enjoy a juicy burger, but not grease literally dripping out of it.
My wife had the BRGR burger; her comment was it tasted like "freddy's " burgers. Her sweet potato fries were very tasty.
If you are in a hurry in downtown, this place is ideal for a quick meal. We were in an out in 40 minutes.

Great food and drinks! Love the atmosphere though it did her pretty noisy it was still fun and conducive to catching up with friends! Our server on this night in particular left a lot to be desired. She lacked a sense of urgency and continuously blamed the bar tender for drinks taking too long. One order came out wrong - first she blamed our group for not remembering how they ordered and then after realizing that wasn't flying she blamed the kitchen on misreading what she typed in...a simple I am so sorry and I will get that corrected would have sufficed.

BRGR is often a fave and easy spot when attending an event at Sprint Center. Service was off this evening though as we were seriously rushed thru our meal. No really- the waitress came asked if she could take my friends plate when he was still holding 1/2 of his hamburger in his hand eating??! I stopper her and said 'No, he is still eating his hamburger, see?' Disappointed.
