Foursquare Tips

  • An American landmark since 1960 & voted best burgers in America! Try "The American Idol" burger w/ bacon, cheese, mushrooms and onions.
  • Cash Only!
  • Mr. Bartley's in Harvard Square, established in 1960, offers a thick, juicy 7-ounce rounded burger. Bill Bartley prefers a round patty to a flat patty and says that beef chuck makes the best grind.
  • Voted "Best Burgers" by @BostonPhoenix readers in 2012. Bring cash and don't forget the onion rings.
  • awesome burgers! cash only though
  • Mr. Bartley's is good. That's it.
  • Try the Kevin Garnett: delicious, but messy (the way a burger should be!). And the onion rings are fantastic! Worth the wait.
  • Love the burger names in this joint
  • Try The Ocho Cinco, a cajun burger topped w/ bacon/pineapple jalepeno relish, and pounded from ground prime, unlike its namesake, who's probably just past his.
  • Beware: Bartley's does not have a bathroom. Really!
  • The trick is: onion rings ON your burger
  • Try the Michelle Obama, Cajun blue cheese burger. SO GOOD!
  • Eating a Scott Brown burger at Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage - bacon, American cheese, grilled onions & jalapeos. Delicious.
  • For a burger joint, the mac and cheese is surprisingly excellent. Good choice for the vegetarian crowd.
  • Line is too long during meal times. Go at odd hours like 2 or 5 pm to get a seat right away
  • The People's Republic of Cambridge is yum. Be aware-you may share your table w. strangers if it's busy. Worth it!
  • if you're in the area, you MUST try a burger here. absolute goodness!
  • You CANNOT go wrong here with any burger! All the food is great and so are the milkshakes!
  • Get the "Patrick Duval" - any burger with jalapenos is an A+ IMO. ...and bring cash.
  • Brave the queues. Order the sweet potato fries and a veggie burger.
