Best Burger I've had in a long time. My family loved it! My oldest daughter was at the UT game so she wasn't with us and she is the burger fan in the family. I will definitely be coming back here with her! The owner was so nice and the guy in the back with the long blonde hair was... More

We drove through Bristol one Sunday not too long ago and spotted this very cool diner. Unfortunately it was closed, so we made a two hour drive from home the following Saturday to check it out. The trip was definitely worth it. I had a very good burger and the best onion rings ever. I didn't save room for a... More

Greasy burgers, fries, onion rings and scrumptious milk shakes in over 30 different flavors.......this was a fun little place that I am glad we took our kids to while passing thru the area. It looks like it is straight out of the 60's. The service was great. We were there at a "slow" time....not sure if it gets busy, but... More

Cool retro decor, friendly service, and a fun menu. The Burger Bar doesn't take itself too seriously, but makes some tasty "drive-in" style fare - notably burger and fries. If you opt for one of the loaded burgers, get lots of napkins!

this place has a great burger. Fries are so good too. The food is basically like you would fix at your backyard bbq. Cute atmosphere and service is good

This is a very interesting place for the unusual burger. The burgers are excellent and so are their milk shakes.

We were driving through Virginia by way of Tennessee and were looking for a place we could eat outside because we had our dog with us. The Burger Bar had good reviews on TA and looked cool with a vintage vibe. There were four tables outside and two available. Our waitress was very friendly and bubbly. Our burgers were great....
