I had the sweet potato fries. Also, quite tasty. We got a tuition discount of 10% when I showed my yeacher I.D. We were... More

This is a fast food establishment that try's to make it's self , at least by way of advertising, some thing it is not. The burgers are at best very ordinary , the help could car less about the patrons & it is very over priced. It could be made into a great sandwich & salad bar with some imagination.... More

I've eaten here a few times with every occasion about the same average. Today for lunch was an old fashion burger with cheese. The young guys working the cash register really pleasant with a good personality. The prices are high for a burger place. I did have onion rings which were ok. Overall, for a burger I'd prefer Whataburger.

While visiting family who recently moved to Georgetown, we went to Burger University for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Their menu items are named in University language and very entertaining to read. The burger, fries and onion rings were all very good. I would recommend going there if you're in the area.

The food & service are very good. The concept is cute. It's called Burger University. I wanted a small meal, so I got the Freshman Cheeseburger plate that came w/drink n fries $6.29. Hubby got a chicken tender salad. They give discounts for kids/seniors, but in the spirit of B.U. it says ask for help w/tuition (instead of discount). So... More

Was on business trip in Georgetown, stop in and have a burger for lunch. Had the exchange student with onion rings. Everything was good, even did a little walk at the blue hole park down the street after lunch.

Burger University has some of the best burgers ever, and the building boasts the original 100-year old wood floor. The building itself is an historic landmark with a very cool vibe. The menu uses college "lingo" in honor of nearby Southwestern University, whose students often frequent the place. If you're looking for an exceptional burger and really good fries in... More

Stopped in here for a break from a long drive with our 1-year old. Staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly and the food was fantastic. The place needs some updates, but was in a nice part of town surrounded by some other fun shops including a coffee and ice cream stop.

Thank Katy C
