I have never been here before. It was different. You ordered your food by a phone in your booth. The service was so so...the food was very good.

Family owned business. Hamburgers are delicious, If coming from out of town this is a must try. Won't ever find anything else like it. My family that visit from surrounding cities always insist on eating at Sumburger when in town. We all love it.

Horrible service, there was an ANT on my plate when they brought it to me. Not one person even apologized. Drinks came out after our food. We never got a refill on our drinks, even after we flagged a waitress down & asked. The last time we ate here in October or November we also had horrible service but decided... More

When we want to just sit in the car and let the car-hop bring the food, this is a good place for it. The burgers and fries have always been good and the drinks perfect. You can also park and go inside and enjoy a nice casual setting. If you are just looking for something to fill the hunger void... More

Place to go for great meal. Always the place I go too when back home in Chillicothe. Nothing fancy but always high quality.

Stopped in for lunch while traveling through Ohio. Neat little place, you place your order by the phone on the wall next to each booth. Service was quick and server was... More

Started in Chillicothe Ohio, this historic restaurant features the famous "Sumburger" sandwich which is a classic! You must try one when in town. The special sauce makes the burger and the crinkle cut fries are to die for. Milk shakes are hand dipped and delicious!
