    If it happens you're in Columbus therman cafe is the place to be! Mouthwatering burgers, friendly staff and the best part of it is the Dollar Bills all around the place! Got the chance to do one!

    The public transportation directly to the restaurant can be limited and parking can be chaotic. Try Lyft. First ride FREE* We are in the area. Use promo code #NOlyNOft for your free ride up $25.

    Get the Thurmanator Burger!!! It's the Best Burger around and it's piled high to the Sky. Its by far one of the biggest burgers out there and its an incredible accomplishment if you finish it. Eat up!

    Best burger place in Ohio, hands down. Was shown on the travel channel's "Man vs. Food" for their huge Thurminator burger. Come prepared to wait about an hour + for a table and have the burger of yo

    The burgers are legendary, but resist the temptation to come here with ALL of your friends. The waits can be insane for large groups. If you keep your group small you might snag a spot at the bar.

    Cheeseburger deluxe good reminded me of an old school homemade burger. Decor was old, lighting was dark.  Not kids Friendly. Return: Maybe Food/Quality: 7.5  Staff/Service: 7 Decor: 5

    Do not eat here, it's dirty, dusty & I kid you not had worms on my burger & friend's burger. We cut them in 1/2 to try the different types & when I went to eat saw green squiggly worms! Stay away :(

    This is absolutely the BEST burger I have ever had, this coming from a burger aficionado and connoisseur. Try the Blazin Burger if you like some spice.

    The whole building was constructed primarily with hamburger meat. Eat the whole thing for a chance to win a live baby dolphin. Served with slaw and a drink.

    The wait to be seated is well worth your time! The variety of burgers is absolutely incredible, and the quality is the best in the city.

    This place has 18 types of burgers, but one isn't on the menu: a burger created for the Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodybuilding Competition: the Thurmanator. --Adam Richman, Man v Food Nation

    9 times out of 10, the service isn't friendly and the wait is atrocious... But once that glorious burger touches your tongue, you forget the rest!

    Try the A1 Burger: 3/4 pound burger with fried & raw onions, mushrooms, lettuce, & cheese in a bun. AWESOME!

    The wait time around lunch is crazy long, but you can order your food to go and the wait time isn't as long. Amazing mushroom burger!

    Jonnie burger makes the wait well worth it. No vegetarian options though,mainly because vegetarians are dumb and this place is awesome.

    What a sleeper. You'd have no idea what great food this place has if someone's didn't tell you. A delicious German Village secret.

    Delicious burgers and fries! Great beer selection too. To avoid a wait, go later in the evening on a weeknight.

    Their burgers are decent. They are huge hamburger patties. You will most definitely be full after eating here.

    Just do yourself a favor and get the sloppy fries. Whatever else you order will be awesome too.

    Order your burger one below how you want it cooked. If you want medium order medium rare.

    Burgers are the best, but the place is small & wait times are horrendous. Service is so so.

    If you go to the Thurman cafe & there's only 2 of you, your best bet is to get a beer at the bar & wait in line for a bar seat 15min vs. 1hr

    Order a drink while you wait to be seated and the wait is much better and goes by faster
