100 best bargain - restaurants 2009          2010_bargain_rest_certificate_168pixes

I am from upstate NY and I travel to Arlington from time to time for work. BGR is across the street and honestly...hands down the best burger, fries, and shake I have ever had. The service is exceptional and the food is always consistant (extremely important). I work in customer service as a quality analyst and this is how it is done right. I was telling the person at the register (Michael) that we need a place like this in upstate NY near the SUNY campus. They love burgers there and you can take the likes of Juicy Burger and Five Guys to school. I watched the BGR staff go the extra mile for their customers, including myself. I'm home now and already missing your great food and outstanding service. I now tell everyone about BGR. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you don't mind if I blog with food in my mouth. I am stuffing my face with the best veggie burger I have ever had in my life. As soon as I finish I'm going to race over to the BGR burger joint in Bethesda and ask the guy who made it to run away with me. If you live in the Washington area you've probably read about BGR. It's a burger joint on Fairmont Avenue that has critics from the Washington Post to GQ Magazine wetting their pants as they gasp about an American staple taking them to heights of ecstasy. This is burger porn, people. I'm a vegetarian and I have choked on my share of dried multi-grained pale yellow slabs. And if it prevents animal suffering then, my god, I'll choke them down with joy. But the veggie burger from BGR is a char-broiled, plant-based wonder so deliciously evil that I need to channel Eartha Kitt as Catwoman to truly express how it makes me feel. Grrrrrrrrreeeeeowwwwlll.
Hang on, I gotta dig up my bustier.
BGR is not a vegetarian restaurant. It's a burger joint that offers sublime veggie options. There's the brown rice and black bean burger (purrrrr), amazing french fries, sweet potato fries and simply grilled asparagus (mmmmmm).

Hi! I just wanted to take a minute to tell you that I've had my share of burgers and sliders from DC to Detroit and today was my first visit to your store - at the Bethesda location... the sliders were cooked as requested - medium and they were still hot when I returned to the office to eat them; the buns were soft and magnificent, and the fries... well, I am not a "fry girl" but damn - they were fantastic too! Oh, and the gentleman who answered the phones (I didn't catch his name, sorry) that took our order (at approx. 12:30PM) had great customer service skills - which is usually harder to find than a decent burger!

You are on to something here =) Keep up the great work! We will be back. Thank you!

Best regards,
