If you are looking for a white table cloth restaurant, this is not it. We love coming here for the overall experience. The burgers are to die for, the beer is cold and the price is unbeatable.

This place has a lot of burger types and selections. Chili burger is one of my favorites. Place gets pretty busy at times.

The food is just ok at the Burger Barge. I know alot of people go there but just not a big selection for what I am able to eat. The bloody mary bar on Sundays is good.
