Had the taxachussettes burger, well worth the price ($12 with fries). The mint cookie frappe (not milkshake) was good, but overpriced ($5).

Atmosphere is nice but it's pricey considering it's only burgers and chips. You can find cheaper alternatives around if you're price conscious

Medium was pink and bloody, tasteless onion rings, overpriced for the cramped seating and unpleasant food.

Burguers are VERY good. That being said, the place is tiny, there's no restroom for the customers (I hope that they legally provide one for employees) and the managing people are rough. I would say it's worth trying, but I don't think I'll like to be back anytime soon.

Staff is always friendly whenever I go. The food comes out fresh and is always delicious. The atmosphere of the establishment is always lively and friendly. Can't say enough good things about this place.

It should go without saying -- Mr. Bartley's has amazing burgers. Don't be overwhelmed with the very crowded -- picnic table style dining. The food is fantastic and the burgers are always fresh. I love that they have so many different burger combinations -- I always try something new and different when I go. Definitely try one of their delicious milkshakes on the side!

Good burger, but when it is well done they burn it !! If you are a medium well person, this place is your 5 stars location !!

Haven't been here in forever, but from what I recall they had amazing burgers, fries, and shakes. The burgers always had cool names after presidents and other notable figures. The walls are covered in memorabilia and funny signs. It's a place you have to go and enjoy your time at a communal table. It gets busy from what I remember and still see but it's worth the wait. I hope to go back again soon!
