H&F Burger is a place where food memories are created. Forged in a time of industry and progress, the burger transformed the American food landscape forever, and we aim to do the same all over again. A legend born at Holeman and Finch, this one deserved its own namesake. Griddled double patty, American cheese, red onion, house-made B&B pickles, pan de mie bun. From-scratch ketchup and mustard. Distinctive hospitaliity at Ponce City Market, Truist Park and Mercedes-Benz Stadium from Chef Linton Hopkins.

The restaurant closed for several weeks with no advance warning to anyone that had standing reservations. Kind of difficult to get last minute reservations elsewhere at 7 pm on a Friday. Kind of hard to fathom that lack of service from a James Beard winner.

The burger was fabulous! Selected the restaurant from the Open Table website based on reviews and it was an excellent pick! They didn’t have the onion rings we were excited about, but that burger!!!

Food was excellent. Probably the best burger in Asheville! They have a create your own charcuterie board and it was great. We liked being able to pick out the cheeses and meats that we liked. My partner got a boozy chocolate shake and loved it. We sat outside. There were heaters so it was the perfect temperature. Overall, a really great date night spot.

We’re native ATLiens, so we had to swing by and see if the Asheville location is holding it down. No surprises - wonderful food, reasonable prices, and lovely staff. Cannot for the life of us see why some of the reviews on here talk poorly of the staff, food, and prices. All three were tip-top for us. In fact, we visited 2X in just 3 days! If you’re a burger purist this will come as no shock to you. We sampled the fried chicken skins, pimento cheese, deviled eggs, onion rings, and hand pie in addition to the burger and hotdog. Make sure to try both the homemade mustard and homemade ketchup! Oh, and where else can you get sticky toffee pudding outside the UK - one the the best dessert dishes on the planet?

After reading the hype, I tried them on a very quiet Sunday lunch. The burger, while tasty, was nothing more than a glorified Five Guys or Shake Shack burger. Onion rings light on the onion and salty. Large portion, as were the fries for my buddy. Fried oysters cooked nicely coming with a remoulade. Homemade ketchup was very good.

Heard rave reviews and after some mediocre fancy meals we wanted a good meal, H and F was excellent, we had the fried chicken skins (the buffalo sauce made them a little soft so next time I’ll order it on the side), the burgers were delicious and the onion rings were thin and fried super crispy, best I’ve had in a long time...The service wasn’t the best as my drink wasn’t refilled and it took a while for someone to come check on us but it is a casual place and last but not least the vanilla milkshake was delicious

We love H&F Burger! The food is excellent and they have the best pickles! The cheeses are great and love that you can order them individually, only complaint is that we always run out of toasted baguettes, it feels cheap and I think they should just give you more. Eclectic music, sleek vibe, good drink options. I don't feel like many, if any, other restaurants downtown are this good of a value. This place is underrated, definitely recommend.

I saw this place on Open Table and thought it would be a good place for a late lunch after the outlets. Christa was our server and she did a super job taking care of us. The food was great, and the burger is well worth the visit. Fries, onion rings and potato skins were all freshly made and perfectly cooked. The beer list is full of great local beers (we had the Valdez Coffee Stout - paired well with lunch) and they have specialty cocktails created by their staff. If you don’t want to stand in line at the usual places, definitely come here! We certainly will!

Everyone we encountered was helpful, professional, and friendly. We enjoyed everything: the food & the casual, upbeat vibe. Sure the hamburger was classically delicious but the turkey burger was also delightful. Ordering both the French fries and onion rings is a guilty pleasure you won’t regret as both are perfectly prepared- hot and crispy on the outside but tender and tasty on the inside! I recommend drinking one of their great cold beers with the hot food but then choosing among their boozy shakes to top off the meal. This is not the place to save calories but to savor them. And definitely check out their Sunday Date Night opportunity!

H&F Burger was good, but they should change their name since there is only one type of burger on the menu. The rest is chicken and oysters. They also offer a trio of deviled eggs appetizer that was delicious, composed of 3 types of deviled eggs. The craft cocktails are amazing and it was nice to see a domestic beer on the menu amidst the local fare. COVID practices made you feel safe and healthy. Nice job.

Thank you for joining us! We appreciate your input on our name and want to share a little history on how we got it. Linton Hopkins’ famous “H&F burger” began at Holeman and Finch Public House as a special. From this cheeseburger, H&F Burger was born. While we love the burger, we also love oysters, bone marrow, pimento cheese and so many other items. The deviled eggs are one of my personal favorites! We are very dedicated to the safety of our guests and community. I hope to see you again soon!
