Almost a sports bar. Burger and fries were great as I watched March Madness game. Beef from organic supplier in Charlottesville. Loved the sweet potato fries. Nice and crispy. Will go again.

If you've never been! Go! My dad told me this was one of his favorite spots growing up, so we made a family trip out and it was great! Amazing burgers! Great chill feel! Locals love it!

While visiting the Carytown section of Richmond, we stopped in Carytown Burger and Fries. They have an extensive menu of burgers. I had the South of the Border Burger without the salsa. It had pepperjack cheese and jalapenos. Burger was cooked perfect and the meat had a great taste with an ample amount of veggies, and as expected very spicy..... More

The title says it all. The burgers were so good but what knocked me away was how awesome and friendly the staff were. Will definitely return multiple times

Went for dinner on a Monday night so it was relatively quiet but still active. The staff were friendly and super helpful with the extensive burger menu. The burgers were great - tasted very fresh.

Doing some shopping in Carytown and we were hungry for burgers and fries. First time trying this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Glad we asked - the fries are seasoned but they made two orders for us without the seasoning. Fries were just as good without the seasoning as with the seasoning. You go in and order and then...

The guys at Carytown Burgers and Fries were SO friendly and genuine. They made our experience fantastic. Food was great, beer was great! Our girls loved it too. They even added extra heaters outside to keep us warm. We will be back soon. Can't wait!

Carytown Burgers is a favorite of my kids (7 & 4). Burgers are large, lots of choices on toppings, and half burgers for kids. I got the Mushroom Swiss, which never disappoints. Decent milkshakes. Servers are super nice.

They advertise fresh beef, but our burgers at Short Pump today tasted like frozen, uniform shape, tasteless and dry. Something's changed from the original days in Cary town. Will not be back.

Carytown Burgers and Fries is a Richmond tradition! We're known for our fantastic, creative and unique tastes in burgers, but our menu includes vegetarian, chicken sandwiches, kid's menu items, milkshakes and more! We take tremendous pride in how our customers feel about us, since we know our food is not the same without amazing customer service. We use only the best ingredients to create the best products. Find us in Carytown, Lakeside and Short Pump!
