Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage, Cambridge, MA

Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage Restaurant Review

: Burgers are the name of the game at Mr. Bartley's. Across from hallowed Harvard Yard, this famed burgermeister has been grilling burgers and whipping up thick frappes for decades (since 1960). Freshly ground, hand-formed and cooked as ordered, the burgers --- most named for stars and politicians --- are among the best in town. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and rapper Snoop Dogg are among those honored with custom creations. We prefer the freshly cut sweet potato fries and onion rings to the regular fries. Salads, sandwiches, wraps and plates of baked meatloaf, spaghetti and roast turkey round out the menu. If you have room for dessert, indulge in a sundae, bread pudding or slice of pie. In addition to the aforementioned frappes, refreshing lime rickeys are also available. The quirky, memorabilia-filled cottage's fame far exceeds the bounds of Cambridge, so expect to be sandwiched between not only students but carnivores of all types.
