Tried this place on a recommendation from a friend. It was later, kind of near closing time, but they were open. It was crowded, but we found a table. We were served water and the gal took our drink orders, but it must have been at least 30 min later when we finally got what we ordered. We noticed other... More

What a pleasant surprise. Quite the variety of burgers (beef, bacon, turkey,chicken and buffalo as well as vegetarian). Mostly local ingredients. Not at all greasy and the fries were hand cut. Delicious!!!

We came in for lunch. The service was very slow and disjointed. The servers were friendly but didn't actually check in on us. We had to ask for silverware and for refills. The food was good but with lacking service it took away from the meal.

Small place downtown. No problem locating parking. Staff was courteous and helpful in selecting what to order. Burgers were very good. My wife's was very hot because of the peppers but it was advertised as such and definitely lived up to its billing. Would go back again.

We just had two of the daily specials, the Mushroom Burger and the Jackedup Turkey, both with fries. Everything was very tasty. The only suggestion my wife had was a few more mushrooms on the mushroom burger. My Jackedup Turkey was everything as described, nice balance of sauce and peppers. Good portion of turkey and bacon. Looks of fries on... More

We live almost two hours away, but anytime that we are in the Albany area we make it a point to stop at First Burger. Always great. Today was even better!! The special was A Blackberry-Brie-Bacon Buffalo Burger.. WOW.

Love the food and the service is good. Prices are steep, but the atmosphere is fun. Think remodeled old building with great architectural features.

We had a great experience here. The owner was in the day we visited and he sat and talked to us about the restaurant. They cut everything from the fries to the toppings for the burgers fresh every day (except the tater tots). The burgers were top notch! My husband got the 50/50 burger (50% ground beef/50% bacon) and he... More

I had lunch here the other day with a friend who had never been here. We each had a sandwich that was amazing. The fries here are also very good. I've had their burgers as well and they are so good. The service here is great, too.
