    Two reasonably hungry people could split one of the huge burgers with sweet potato fries and leave happy. The #hashtag with Boursin cheese, grilled onions and mushrooms was great.

    The thick, juicy 7-ounce rounded burger doesn't seem like it's too big. Co-owner Bill Bartley prefers a round patty to a flat patty. He also says that beef chuck makes the best grind. Read more

    Took home burger! Not a super surprise, but was good as well, and full of calories as well ;) Didn't try the one Harvard Uni recommend (mushroom onion burger), maybe next time ;)

    This Harvard mainstay is only getting better with age. Their constant inventiveness with topping combos (along with hilarious names!) for their burgers is unmatched by any other joint in the area. A+!

    Do yourself a favour and grab a Taylor Made burger or a Fiscal Cliff. Both excellent choices... I also recommend their chocolate shake and onion rings.

    I eat here every time I'm in Boston. Be prepared to wait and make friends (or stare at your delicious food to avoid eye contact/interacting with strangers) at the community tables.

    Amazing burgers! The Michelle Obama is delicious. The pink lemonade is a bit sweet but if you let the ice melt a little, it's perfect. They also REALLY cook the meat the way you request it.

    If you love burgers you gotta visit Mr. Bartleys close to Harvard. Get the 'Tom Brady' and a Raspberry Lime Rickey. Best in town.

    The veggie burgers are just frozen "Original" Gardenburgers from the box, but they have such delicious toppings and sides that you won't care. Get a frappe and onion rings.

    If you like burgers this is your spot. Be sure to check the board because new burger combinations are always popping up. Hungry? Go for the "Triple D".

    Try the Mitt Romney (Swiss cheese burger with grilled onions and onion rings) or the Michelle Obama (Cajun blue cheese burger with fries). Add a frappe or malt to complete the experience. Read more

    The service, cleanness and ambience of the place is bad, though. Don't come here if you want a comfortable meal as you sit along with strangers to ..optimize seating arrangement!

    Amazing burgers- which are names after celebrities that have been there! Healthy options such as no bun and vegetarian options too. Love this place

    If you love burgers and are in Cambridge, you can't pass-up this legendary burger shop. The rounded burgers are cleverly named and stuffed with toppings.

    Mmm delicious burgers. I got the John Kennedy, mom and dad got the Mit Romney and brother got the Sarah Palin, friend got the iPhone. Good names haha :)

    Try The Ocho Cinco, a cajun burger topped w/ bacon/pineapple jalepeno relish, and pounded from ground prime, unlike its namesake, who's probably just past his. Read more

    The Cajun Burger is incredible. But be prepared for long lines. Although this place harbors a huge crowd, they have some of the best burgers I've ever tasted!

    This place has been slinging burgers for 50+ years. A local institution and a solid menu. Cash only.

    Excellent burger bar- can't go wrong with any of the burger choices. Love the names they've got and also the frappes (milkshakes) are worth a go

    The sweet potato fries take over a day to make, and you can taste it. Try them! Any burger you order will be great, but skip the turkey burger here, don't insult the place. Go beef!

    I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. Very no-nonsense place. Burgers are sublime - but also not to be missed are the sweet potato fries, Raspberry Lime Rickeys and Frappes.

    Try the Kevin Garnett: delicious, but messy (the way a burger should be!). And the onion rings are fantastic! Worth the wait.

    "The Gay Marriage" + onion rings! Personally, I prefer their onion rings over fries!

    Try the Mocha Cake Batter Oreo Frappe - Not on the menu. Out of the mind of server supreme, Michelle.

    Quite disappointing. The burguers have just the meat and the toppings you add, not even a bit of tomato, onion, lettuce, or what regular burguers usually have. 35$ for two burguers with chips??!!

    Read the menu for a laugh or to find inspiration, but you can just describe anything you want on a burger and they can do it.
