One. Huge. Disappointment. I live in the area and have been wanting to check this place out for a while. First time was yesterday, got some food to go. The price? Totally blown out of proportion. Now, I am not a cheap person whatsoever. In fact, I work for an actual "celebrity" chef, so paying a little more for things is totally fine for me. I had seen Chef Allen's name on the restaurant and thought the quality would be good. I bought two six-packs of sliders, one six-pack of kobe beef sliders and one of pork belly sliders. Now, if one slider, as also advertised on the menu, is $6.50 and the same normal slider size, that's ridiculous to start. The six-packs for $24 EACH, and I was NOT told the price when I placed my order on the phone, or I perhaps would have asked if it was worth it. That's a huge no-no in my opinion; you should always be told the price on the phone, ESPECIALLY if it's expensive food. So, I let it go, since I had never tried the food here, so I paid for it. Also got a large order of fries. The pork belly sliders were extremely under-seasoned and bland. No "heart..." no "soul..." like the menu says. On the bun was lots of greens and a mango chutney. Diced mangos like they came from a can. A huge fail overall. The kobe beef sliders? Probably should have ordered the classic sliders to spare me the trouble. Again, way under-seasoned and a touch undercooked. Jeez. And the fries. Oh, the fries. They're the same exact fries you get at chains. My gosh what a wreck.

Love Burger Bar. Food is excellent. I get cravings. This is a real Hamburger and slider. The deals they have are excellent! Before they opened I hardly ate burgers they never tasted this juicy! Great atmosphere to be with friends.

I have eaten here three times. Each time it has gotten worse. The menu is completely overpriced but i was willing to put up with it because the dining room is quite nice and the burgers are good. However, there are far too many places in the area to get a similar burger and many of them are better. Also the waitstaff and management is overbearing and unfriendly. The last two times i went there they brought us cold fries and mixed up orders. On my last visit my waitress disappeared and i never got a second drink refill until.she came back to bring the check. For a place that wants to charge like an upscale restaurant for burgers they should at least get some competent employees. I wont be back.

Buster's Dad and I have been to the Burger Bar 4 or 5 times (and, coincidentally, are going to night with Buster's Uncle Bud and Grandparents...). It's our new favorite burger place. Yes, it's quite an upgrade from the others, but it's nice to enjoy a really tasty burger and crinkle-cut fries in an adult environment. All of the burgers we've tried have been delicious and cooked just right. The meat's flavorful and not grease-laden. The fries are crispy and hot. Tonight I'm going to give in and have an adult milkshake, calories or not! In addition to the great food, our servers have all been delightful and attentive without being hover-y. So to those people who wrote a bad review of the Burger Bar - Are you sure you went to the same place? Donald Ross Village? Cus we think it's great.

I think the common thread here is overpriced and overrated'. Someone told me that i should try it out while I was down from DC. First: The beer-a glass of 'Microbrewed Ale'...$8.50.. Second: The Portobello Burger: Dry, tasteless, with a lot of pretty things in it (they even but a 'brand' on the bun), but they forgot the flavor. Third: The fries. They arrived in a small basket, again, very pretty, and then again, pretty unappetizing. They had the texture of cardboard. I ate 3 and left the rest. Fourth: The waitstaff seem generally uninterested and are a bit slow, except when it's time for the bill, which, by the way was about $20.00 plus tip. If this is supposed to be 'The best' burger around, I would hate to taste the worst.. I won't be back.

Went to burger bar last night with my wife and another couple. We were seated right away and our drink order was promptly taken. When drinks arrived, we put in an order of fried pickles as an app. From this point on everything went down hill. The fried pickles were ok, but the waiter didn't even ask if we were done (which we weren't) before he took them off of our table. We then waited and waited and waited... for about 40 minutes for our food to arrive. During those 40 minutes, our waiter didn't come back once to check on us to see if we needed another round of drinks (their lo$$). A runner eventually brought our food out. Two side dishes were wrong, fries not salad. The runner promptly corrected the mistake but the 2 side salads were haphazardly thrown on 1 plate. Everyone said their dish was ok, but not great. After we were done eating we waited and waited and waited for about 30 mins before our waiter brought us our check. He never checked in on us to see how our meal was or if we needed more drinks. With all the burger joints popping up in PBG and Jupiter I don't think I'll be going back to this one anytime soon. I'd rather have an "ok" meal with excellent service, than a good/great meal with poor service. The front of the house needs to get their act in order otherwise I don't suspect this place will make it very long.

Stopped in for a beer and was blown away by the food. I had the Tuesday $2 sliders and fries . . . cooked perfectly - juicy but not greasy. Highly recommend the Brandy Alexander Shake if you've gotten in at least a five mile run. Bartender was great - very professional and took good care of us even though the place was packed Will definitely go back.
