My son wanted chicken strips and unfortunately (or fortunately), four other places we tried were closed for spring cleaning/repairs. We had not eaten at Empire Burger on previous trips, but we will in the future. My bacon cheeseburger was great and my son's chicken strips...More

Friendly wait staff, quick service. Husband had one of their burgers and I had the grilled Hawaiin chicken sandwich with pineapple. Both were really good. Prices good as well.

Excellent cheeseburgers and fries. The staff was very friendly and the service was very good. The margaritas were delicious. I had a strawberry basil margarita and my husband had the pineapple. Would definitely recommend for dinners or drinks and snacks.

Don't be distracted by the name. The menu is extensive. I had a turkey burger which was good and not all restaurants can cook these to taste great. I recommend the onion rings. Minimal batter and lots of onion. Great service.

The guacamole bacon burger was not great. Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but the bacon was barely cooked and the beef had zero flavor. I was also surprised to find the $11 burger didn't come with fries. The chicken tenders tasted frozen....More

Do you serve anything other than beef? Chicken, turkey or salmon burgers?

I have had their bison and turkey burgers. Both are great.
Do you take reservations for large parties?

It's the beef!! Harris Ranch, all natural, super selective on choice cuts from A-1 ranchers. Also, we grind all our hamburger ourselves, which helps. We'd love to add more of everything but we're limited on space for draft kegs/storage and on space for, well, more space. ;) See you next time.

Our mission is simple: build a better burger. Empire Burgers are made with freshly ground Harris Ranch Beef. 20 House-made dipping sauces to choose from to complement our fresh cut fries, onion rings, and zucchini chips. Open until 1 in the morning.
