Great ambiance! Our server was great. She was on top of our drinks and she was very nice. This is the second time we have been to Thunder Burger for brunch and it won’t be the last. The burger menu looks amazing and i really want to try their burgers. Overall a good experience and we will be back very soon.

OK hamburgers, granddaughter enjoyed the steak. I really don't think the hamburgers were 9oz. The waiter did not speak English very well and didn't under my drink order. warm (hardly any ice) margarita with no salt - when specifically asked for it - but a great time with the kids.

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Atmosphere is....well unique and casual, but not in a bad way. Burger options are great. Burger was cooked great. The sweet potato fries were terrific, however would be average without the ginger dipping sauce. Pleasant genuine service. Nice to have several different room options to have dinner.

Low key place to grab a bite n a beer!
Nothing too exciting going on there.
Bartender unengaging but adequate.

Host was prompt in seating us for our 7:30 reservation. Unfortunately, we then sat at our table for 20 minutes being ignored by everyone until I finally asked a server in our area if she was our server. She politely said no, and asked if I wanted me to get them. I asked if she could as we had been waiting for awhile and no one had even been over yet. Once she went and found him, the rest of the meal was uneventful, he was fairly prompt. I don’t know if the host just didn’t tell him that he had seated us where he had. Food was good but not great. Just middle of the bar.

Very Reliable Option in Georgetown

Went before a movie for a cheapish meal in Georgetown that is fairly hard to find. Good burgers, a lot of options and customization. Burgers were made to order and the fries (sweet potato) were very good. Drinks were pretty good as well. Service was good, too. Big space that can handle crowds. A good option in Georgetown.
