The burgers here are outstanding—very juicy, and excellent flavor. Lots of standard and not-so-standard choices for burger toppings. The frappes for dessert are even better—we had the chocolate peanut butter banana. Wash it all down with a beer for a but-gusting meal.

The number of inventive burger combinations on the menu was truly impressive. All in my party were well pleased with their burgers. A full liquor license would be an improvement.

There is a metered parking lot in the back of Davis Sq. near the bowling alley. BBC is like a 3 or 4 min walk from there.
