Always consistent, excellent burgers and milkshakes. Many options, a lot of food for the money. Friendly staff, food cones out quickly.

Coming here quite often, I've tried almost every item on the menu, from milkshakes to the lamb burger to seasonal burgers, like the Oktoberfest Burger, I've had it all. Never once have I been disappointed. They are consistently good, and I highly recommend it. The atmosphere is great. Located in a nice strip mall in Potomac, full of artsy mosaic... More

BGR offers inventive takes on burgers. The Wellington is a flavorful combo of mushrooms, onions, and blue cheese served over a perfectly cooked burger. The garlic fries are quite good but be forewarned, they are STRONG. You must love garlic. Overall a great experience.

Burgers and hot dogs here are consistently good, but somewhat high priced. Fries are kind of forgettable.

Our family went there for burgers. Great burgers and food, but we left hungry. The prices are a little high for the amount that you get. I think they should increase the portion size or have some sort of "hamburger fixing" bar or something.

This is not a restaurant, but a "take in" establishment. Order at a counter and sit at utilitarian uncomfortable tables. There are nicer places to go, but this is not a dining experience: you would go here for one reason only, the burgers which are the best in the business. You can order them the way you like them, including... More

I ate here using a Groupon. I am not a frequent burger joint patron because I don't eat meat. BGR has a vegetarian burger, so I tried it. The best. Great fixings, great bun, great patty. Great onion rings. I would return without a discount coupon.

If you havent tried them you dont know what youre missing. These are THICK, made to order, juicy, and cooked the way you ask --rare or medium rare. (Five Guys and Elevation Burger only make one way--their way--and are not in the same league with BGR). The regular fries are nothing special--the sweet potato fries are better. ALSO NICE --...

The vegetarian burger was really good. It was filling and tasty. The service was fast and the restrooms clean. The sweet potato fries were also good and copious. We were planning on going to a restaurant for dinner and opted instead for faster food; not disappointed.

Part of the BGR chain. Good to have a burger place in Potomac. BGR has specialty burgers, but if you just want plain burger or cheeseburger, or whatever you want, you can build your own. Dunno if other reviewers missed that on menu (build your own)? Place is clean and efficient. They also have one of the Coke mixing machines... More
