  • kjmtemps reviewAll of the problems in the last review are true- if it's a nice day anywhere near lunch or dinner time you can forget getting one of the ~10 tables. One of the best burgers you will ever have though. They do also have carry-out, you'll lose the ambience of the place (it's a pretty cool family-owned type place) but you'll also save yourself the couple hour wait for a table. Just be sure to call ahead- the last time I called for carryout it was an hour wait for that. My favorite is the bleu cheese burger

  • crichelle reviewThe good - Arguably the best burger in the city.
    The bad - Slow service and few waiters.
    The ugly - Tiny resteraunt and looooooonnnngggg wait times for tables due to popularity.

    The verdict - Go for a late afternoon lunch and enjoy the best burger in Columbus.

  • Kirsten G.We had to wait almost 2 hours for a table and once we were finally seated the service was mediocre. The food was great, but not that great.

  • mike m.If you go to the Thurman cafe & there's only 2 of you, your best bet is to get a beer at the bar & wait in line for a bar seat 15min vs. 1hr

  • Sarah H.Must try the sloppy fries! Absolutely unbelievable!

    55555 by Sarah H.


  • Patrick L.The burgers are legendary, but resist the temptation to come here with ALL of your friends. The waits can be insane for large groups. If you keep your group small you might snag a spot at the bar.

  • Kate R.The whole building was constructed primarily with hamburger meat. Eat the whole thing for a chance to win a live baby dolphin. Served with slaw and a drink.
