2/17/17 - Looking for a real, no fuss no muss GREAT ass burger? Build-A-Burger Pub is where you want to go! From the ease of ordering, to the friendly, laid back neighborhood atmosphere, Build-A-Burger is a real gem. Start by ordering a soda at the bar. What you'll receive is a small pitcher with enough soda to float the USS Nimitz. Now onto the burger...SIMPLE. It's a sheet of paper with your choices. Hot toppings on the left, cold on the right. Pretty simple so far, eh? Circle your desired toppings, hand the sheet to the extremely friendly/outgoing bartender and sit back with your reservoir of soda. 10-15 minutes later your burger is served. It really doesn't get much better then this in our area. Highly recommended!

8/9/17 - This is my first review on yelp but after trying the burger, I had to review it. If you want a great burger and a beer, this is the place to try. I stopped for lunch and was amazed at the quality of the burger! I got mine with fried onions and mozzarella and it was fantastic. Matt, the bartender is fun, I think he made my burger. If you want a place to have a great burger and a couple of beers, this is the place.

6/15/2017 - 5.0 star rating This place is a dive to say the least. If the walls could talk they would tell quite the story. Here is the thing. The Burger that you can build..... really is one of the best around. Juicy, fat burger that comes out perfectly cooked. Want it Medium Rare? No problem. Five guys cooks them well done no matter what. The fries are also fresh cut and cooked perfectly. This is your local bar and they love you for it. They serve a single order of soda in a small bar pitcher filled with ice lol I have left a phone and a credit card behind at this place. It was there when I returned. Skip the chains and go get a real burger, it cost more but it is completely worth it. They also have a cool backyard patio with horseshoe pits too. If you don't want a burger they have other sandwich options. Not sure I will ever order anything else though

12/9/2017 -It is definitely a dive bar - but that is no bad thing! There's a spacious covered deck out back with wood and plastic tables - clearly the smoking area, and with parking lots on either side, but still green and relatively peaceful, especially in the middle of the day. I enjoyed feeling a breeze and listening to birdsong while I ate my lunch. The food was very good! Burger was cooked right, and the topping choices were diverse and delicious. When I looked at the menu, I thought the price for added bacon ($3) was kind of steep, but when the burger came out, I understood why. There were probably 6 full slices of bacon on top of it! The other toppings I ordered were also plentiful. The fries were hot and fresh, and the drink I ordered was indeed served in a mini pitcher. I really just glanced at the rest of their menu, but it looks like they have about a dozen different kind of chicken wings, so wing-lovers take note. The service was great! The waiter doubled as the cook, and was super friendly and accommodating. If you feel like going to a no-frills bar with great burgers and service, you couldn't do better than this place.
