We had a small family gathering and we all wanted a hamburger for lunch. We found Burger Time Machine and had a very good lunch. The French fries were crispy and delicious. I don't go to Denton often, when I do, I'll keep this place at the top of the list. The nostalgic decorations are great.

Seriously, if you are hungry for a great burger, this is the place! So many kinds to choose from, they cut their own meat, nice big serving a home fries on the side and good service. The burger is very large, juicy, fresh. Looks like a popular place with locals. Bringing my family back for dinner soon.

Some associates and I were in Denton last week, and we decided to stop at Burger Time Machine, as we love burgers. The atmosphere was okay, and the burgers were decent. Overpriced for what they were. Still, probably the best burger in Denton.

If you fancy an old fashioned style burger just like Dad used to grill (but a little bit better) this is a great place for a casual meal. Nothing fancy but delicious, filling, and affordable.

We were in Denton for the DCI event. Looking for a place to eat, we stumbled upon this place. From the outside, it looks like a local burger joint. Some might pass right by but we decided to try it. It was crazy, in the adjacent parking lot the fire department was extinguishing a burning car! But neither caused us... More

Lots of movie posters, arcade games makes the place a "throwback." of the classic roadside burger joint. My girlfriend and I stopped at Burger Time Machine on our way back from Oklahoma; we were served a couple of the best burgers of all time. We both had the original Time Machine Burger with plenty of grilled jalapenos, grilled onions, tomatoes,... More

It is a Time Machine, a pool table, several game machines. Burgers with names like Jurassic Park, Star Trek, Frito Pie Chilli, etc. You can smell the deep fryer when you walk in the door, whether or not that is a good thing is up to you. The food is delicious. I had the Frito Pie Chilli burger and it... More

This place bills itself as biggest and best, but it's the bill that is biggest and the burger is not the best.

I've eaten here 3 or 4 times and the food is always consistently good! The burger combinations are great and the fries are excellent. I also really liked their fried pickles...not the best I've ever had but, very tasty! I do not go here with regularity but I do go on there when the mood strikes. I've yet to be... More

I was passing through Denton and it was lunch time so I thought I would try this place. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you after it is cooked. The burgers were large, juicy and flavorful. I had the combo which included fried and drink. The fries were fresh cut but had a peculiar taste... More
