Natonya Groover

Got everything wings ,empire burger with sweet fries and it was all sooo good.Will definitely come again.

Todd Pleasants

Great food, great customer service, if you're looking for a freshly prepared hamburger, this is the best spot in town!!

Jamesha Green

Ok. So I love this place. I went on a Friday “Fish fry Friday “ it was amazing! The atmosphere was chill, people were nice. And of course I’ll support the BOB’s

Bill Maurer

First time customer. I ordered the Bacon & Shrimp Burger with fries, and it had to be one of the best burgers I have ever had. The burger was cooked well done, but was still juicy and tender like it was cooked to a lower temperature. The fries were very good as well. They have earned another repeat customer today!

Jenna Snyder

Please open something in the Peninsula!! Best burgers around from a food truck. I’m dying to try everything else but it’s a day trip to drive out there! Love y’all! Keep killing it!

Angela Faulks

Food was beyond delicious... made to order so it was fresh and refreshing to get what you pay for

Lakindra Bundy

You can never go in this place sad or mad and walk out the same way. The food, the staff, and the environment is so inviting. Prices are great for the portion but with the way it tastes I swear it can go against any 5 star restaurant. Definitely going big places!!!!

Patricia Stewart

The food was awesome everything was fresh and tasted good. I will be going back.

Erik Tuthill

Nice little spot. Super friendly staff. Tasty burgers.

Ciera Ramey

First time there this past Sunday for brunch & it was soooooooo good !!! The staff was very personable, very funny, and super friendly. Felt like me & my family were dining with family. I will be visiting the Norfolk location for lunch very soon to try a burger & other items recommended. A little pricey but I don't mind paying for awesome food & service .

Denise Rutledge

Charlene Henderson

I love their wings, but I think they a litrle to pricey

Pure Brilliance

The best food in town.... The brunch buffet and mimosas are to die for!!! I had and custom ordered omelet, fish, sausage, and french toast (no syrup needed). You must try them!!!"

Marian Rivas

Delicious burgers!! Juciy and full of flavor. Staff was very friendly. 10/10 for flavor, quality, and presentation

Jason Stoneman

Loved this place with its sports atmosphere and housemade everything from the bread to the crabcakes and shredded prime burgers.

Sharon Layden

EXCELLENT!!!! The burgers and fries are delicious!! The fried pickles are better than any I have ever had and the fresh lemonade will knock your socks off! The banana pudding is good and that barbeque sauce is beyond amazing!! You walk up and place your order so no table service. They have a small bar and serve beer and liquor but really it's a hometown burger joint. NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!

George G.

Went there for a burger and ended up getting the fish basket. It was so fresh, 10 minutes into eating it I still had to be careful (temperature). You can tell by just walking into this place that they really care about their customers and products. I'll be back for that burger, soon.

Sea Lionsss

I went into this place for lunch really not expecting much and the bar set high as a self proclaimed 'burger aficionado'. I was surprised, delighted, and more than satisfied. This place is a real hidden treasure-premium customer service experience and the burger I had exceeded every expectation I had. Delicious. What really caught me off guard was the premium quality of food coming out of what I took as a 'mom and pop' sort of location. Well done.

Clifton Pickens

The Best Bugers and specialty dishes, local or Chain in Hampton Roads hands down.. Big ups to the True Burger King!

Donna Claud

This was our first time here & it was outstanding! The burgers were fresh & delicious. Staff was friendly & we will definitely be going back soon.

Debra McDuffie

I love the feeling of coming to a family owned restaurant. The food is great and the owners are real friendly. They treat you like family. I will be back!

Katie Woodall

Best burger I’ve had in a while! I found this place after moving to the area just recently. I read the reviews and figured I’d check it out myself, and I’m so glad I did. The burgers are cooked well done as they say on their website, but they’re still full of flavor and juicy (not dry at all). They’re sweet potato fries are delicious and you can tell they’re home made (shareable size at that, too!). The staff here is so nice and helpful, as well. They made sure to check on us to ensure that we had everything we needed and truly wanted to know our feedback. Highly recommend.

Matthew Crafter

Yo!!! Best burger's in Churchland and quite possibly the best in Hampton Roads. Get the Empire Burger and thank me later.

Sonyta Or

I found this little gem last minute & they sure did not disappoint! If you're looking for a simple juicy burger &'ve found it! Everything is made fresh to order! I really liked how simple menu & the prices were very fair! All the employees were so friendly! I definitely recommend the sweet potatoe fries & tater tots as well!

D Goodrich

Really great find. I had the shrimp burger with fries and had to refrain from licking my fingers afterwards. I don't normally enjoy a well done burger but somehow Gourmet Burger Bistro has created an exception. They have things other than burgers as well, such as fried fish, grilled hot dogs, wings, and fried rice. I will have to go back and try other things on the menu.

Kimmberrlee Ohthatsme

It's a neat little concept at a steap price considering it not being a full service restaurant. Lunch @ a dinner price was a huge disappointment.

Michael Norfleet

Really great place food was delicious

LaKevin Wilson

Excellent da mack

maryland cox

I liked this restaurant. I went with my family when I came down to visit. The staff is friendly. The menu isn't overly complicated so it's easy to find a meal that you want. The food came out pretty fast and it was good. More than likely gonna come back next time I'm in town.

Anna Cook

Excellent food and excellent service!


Good customer service. Good food inexpensive.

Joshua King

Great burger!! Super nice staff enjoyed every minute. My 1st visit was so great I came back three days later and tried the sticky wings and a different burger. If you are in Portsmouth, VA then you should definitely check them out.

Jeremy Miraflor

A pleasant little restaurant and perfect place to grab a quick healthy lunch. The guys at Gourmet Burger came through for me with a low carb burger lettuce wrap and salad. Great flavors and fresh ingredients made my experience great. Looking forward to coming back for more.

Pam Wittman

The food and service is phenomenal! Best around!

Young Corey

Recardo Mills

Tiesha N.

The food is delicious and they have good customer service. I also like the fact that both of the managers walk around greeting their customers, and they make sure they are comfortable.. very comfortable place family oriented.

Roe !

Love their burgers and comfort food. Great place for lunch.

Ashlee Ward

First time trying out. Love it. Had the Chicken and Shrimp Rice Special. Well worth the money.

Courtney&Tay Poole

First time at this place and I must say the food was off the charts! $1 WHOLE Wing Wednesday was no disappointment. Definitely a hidden gem I'll be revisiting. Everything from astronomical customer service, to the great food and one of a kind drinks!

AMBER Sullivan

I’m not a review on the internet person, but this place is amazing. The atmosphere is great, the staff is great, the set up is so nice, but most importantly the food is amazing. (Trying to stay professional in this review lol) I will definitely be back. I had a turkey burger nd went back to order wings for the night.

Katrina Brown

I'm always satisfied when I order food, they are a awesome group of people

Ebony Hawley

very crowded and poor bartender service .......waited 15mins to even get his attention to ask for a drink. also after 9pm the had a 5 menu selection which the plates are very very small so u better eat before u come periodt unless u come earlier

katina artis

Fun atmosphere and delicious food. Quick and quaint. I absolutely love it!

William Carter

Unfortunately I can't give a good and accurate review of this establishment as we were asked to leave since my wife and I both have service dogs. The first employee we talked to said the state health inspector told them no service animals were allowed due to the open kitchen. The kitchen is completely separate from the dining area. We remained in line to order our food and a second employee came over to us and said basically the same thing. I informed him of both the federal and state laws on service animals and asked him to call the authorities if he wanted. He then back stepped and said we could stay but we would have to eat in a closed off section as people have complained about service animals in the past, this area was next to the open kitchen and looked less then clean. My wife and I left at this time not feeling good about the quality of the food we would have received. This is the first time we have had a problem with our service dogs, we have dined in all seven cities in the tidewater area, covering the full spectrum of dining from breakfast and sandwich shops, to pizzerias all the way to fine dining establishments with never a complaint. Most of the time we are complemented on how well behaved they were. Which I found odd since all service animals are trained to be unobtrusive and well behaved before being trained to the specific disability they are needed for.

L Sorrell

Excellent food and staff. The owner is personable. We we impressed overall for our first time trying this restaurant. We will definitely return. This is now my place for wings.

Sammy K

I don't know what everyone saw in the place but for starts I order a burger and fries To-go. It's not busy 3 other people came in minutes after me. They all got their food and I'm still sitting there. I finally get my food my burger was supposed to have lettuce and tomato it didn't they must have forgot it. Fries aren't included so I paid extra for them and they were extremely soggy and the smallest order of fries ive ever gotten. So for almost 15 dollars I got a basic burger and soggy fries no drink. I'm still hungry and I'm only 100 pounds. My patty was dry and crumbly I added pickles they put 2 tiny soggy rounds. I feel straight robbed for my money.

Michelle Johnson

We were looking for something new and this popped up in our searches. Both the food and customer service was amazing! We can’t wait to go back and try different burgers.

Lillian Taylor

Talked to the owner about items for special event. Cool dude.

s davis

Enjoyed my crab cake and burger. They accommodated my request for no bun. Will be returning

Pamela Gray

After searching for "A Favorite Brunch Spot", My Family & I were pleasantly surprised by the unique buffet menu: Traditional Breakfast crossed w/southern cuisine, & even Asian inspiried Vegan Cuisine! Everything was Fresh... and we arrived towards the end of their Sunday Buffet hours! Looking forward to visiting The Gourmet Burger Bistro on a weekday, & sharing our experience with our friends!

Bootsie Jones

I went on $1 wing Wednesday and ordered cheese fries also. Nice clean restaurant & spacious. The owner and workers were nice and courteous and friendly.

Mary Kee

Food is good... service is usually excellent...

Vlad Merine

My wife and I ate here for the 1st time today and we really enjoyed it! The service was great! Really good people there. The burgers were freshly made, served hot and delicious, the Everything wings were AMAZING! We enjoyed every bite. Definitely recommend this place.


Food and service was amazing!

Lasof DaReal

Nice place with good food and atmosphere

Elise Cofer

Awesome burger! Perfect size and the toppings were great. Onion rings were superb, too! We will be back!

Janiece L. Malone

Food is good, but... they don't have menus. They don't tell you the price of anything they just bring you all this food and no one knows how much anything is until you get to the register. Completely unacceptable. They need to do better.


Awesome customer service, very inviting atmosphere, and the FOOD is absolutely DELICIOUS!

Mike M_VB

Went by the Norfolk location in the Military Circle Mall with the nephew. Had the P towner burger. (burger with fried egg. bacon, American cheese, lettuce and tomato). Literally the best burger I've had. French fries are excellent too. Best lemonade as well. Highly recommended!

karl birkland

Excellent tasting burgers!! Staff is very friendly. Even the sweet potatoes fries were awesome. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Abigail Cox

This customer service is literally chic fil a on steroids and even better because they’re open on Sundays. I’ve been to the Burger Bistro 3 times within the past week alone and each time I’ve received better customer service from the last. My first time coming, the customer service was fantastic, I’m just saying that it never waivers; it always stays consistent. I love how the entire staff is devoted to ensuring every customer has a good experience and not just the owner which means that he truly has a good team behind him that wants to see the business thrive as much as he does. Black owned businesses usually get a lot of flack because of their lack of good customer service, but I am so thrilled to say that someone is out here trying to put that stigma to rest. And of course the food is bomb btw, try the lo mein and the yum yum mimosa, it’ll getchu right ! -Abby

Brent gaffey

This place has some generous sized burgers that pack a punch! Order your food at the counter up front and they bring it to you. I do have to say it took about 30 minutes to get our food but it was delicious. I am sure our wait time was because this place was packed. I would definitely recommend it.

Gabby James

Laid back atmosphere. Food was great. Went for a lunch date. I'd go back.

Arjay Reyna

Great food, decent portions. Nice staff too.

Tiara Porter

Food was amazing!!! The bacon and shrimp burger was delicious!!!! Clean environment, friendly staff. Small but nicely decorated!!! Definitely suggest eating here if you are looking for a good burger for an affordable price!!

anthony permelia

They were quick, it's local, the food is reasonably priced, and everyone was polite. I absolutely love this place and will be coming back frequently. It feels so nice to be able to have money going back to the community, and getting a better experience for it. A+

Bea Morrison DuPont

Friendly environment, friendly atmosphere, excellent service, the staff makes you feel very comfortable and welcomed.. I would recommend this restaurant to any and all ages. I certainly will dine there again, good hospitality is hard to come by.

Earthy Thompson

Erica Francis

Fabulous place & fantastic customer service! The food is tasty. Definitely coming back for the brunch

Al Bell

Burgers are amazing!!!! Chicken & Shrimp fried rice is stupid delicious. Everything wings is glazed with a sauce that is delectable. The sweet potato fries are a fun eat. It is a must try store front restaurant. Don't wait another day. It will be well worth the trip.

Nicole Rose

My favorite brunch spot. The food is amazing...they never let me down!

Travis China

Food was phenomenal, as was the service. The female cashier made us feel warm. Try the naked wings and the PTown burger.

Kevin Schoettlin

The burgers here are amazing. The wings are huge. The owner is very friendly and welcoming, as is the staff. I thoroughly enjoyed The Empire and I look forward to trying all the different burgers.

Food was delicious, staff was friendly, great atmosphere.

Allan Gabriel

Great burgers and fries that really have a gourmet 5 star restaurant taste with a bistro chateau feel with stand up counter eatery and a lounge setting on the side with entertaining.

Lisa B

First visit to Gourmet Burger Bistro and I must say it will NOT be my last. They are doing those burgers and wings RIGHT...I asked for crispy and they gave me CRISPY...!! I loved every JUICY bite of my burger! I can't wait to visit again. Go get yours, you'll be GLAD you did...❣✔

Jill W

The staff is super polite and the food is bomb. Very casual atmosphere. Went on a weekday during lunch and it wasn’t loud or crazy. Music was played at a good volume and they had the game on for people to watch.

Lamont Hairston

This place has good food. The Customer service is outstanding. I can't wait to try their brunch.

Meg H

Gourmet Burger is always excellent! My family consist of many different food lifestyles ( vegetarian, pescetarian, a non beef eater, and a beef lover). Gourmet Burger has something for all of us! My whole family loves the restaurant and the many menu options. This is one of the few places we can all eat at together and have us all feel satisfied with the selection. All of the meals we have tried have been great! My personal favourites are the Veggie Melt and the Empire Burger (when I was still a meat eater). Additionally, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. P.S. My daughter says the Sticky Wings are the best wings she has ever eaten.

Jerlyn Allen

Really good. I really liked it. They need to work on the lemonade...however the food is great.

Sir Dominus Lamont

wow. banana pudding is great. not as great as my aunts, but its up there. sweet juicy burger w/ the crab meat was banging.

Billy Harrell

Great food, the cheese fries are on point and the burger was very moist, that's going to be my new burger joint. Friendly people working there tops off the experience. You got a customer for life.

Ellerson Pork

Yes, yes, and Yes! This place is awesome, drinks and staff are very friendly.

Sharon R

I was in the mood for a good burger tonight, and remembered reading about a burger place nearby that we hadn't been to yet. After very little effort, I convinced my family that we needed to try this new place. As we drove up, it was very obvious the owner loves this place. The outside had great signage with eye-catching colors and graphics. There is an inviting covered patio with dining tables, as well as more seating inside. We went inside and were greeted by the incredibly friendly people of Gourmet Burger Bistro, as well as the Burger King himself, the man responsible for the miraculous burgers! We stepped up and ordered, each of us getting something different. We tried The Classic (with corn fritters), The P-Towner (with fries) and the Burger Melt (with onion rings.) We sat inside at a table close to the kitchen and waited with anticipation for our burgers to be brought out. I am happy to say, we hardly waited any time at all, before our food appeared. I took one bite and was stunned by the flavor burst and stream of juices from this delicious burger! It didn’t even need condiments! I have not had a burger that juicy since the days of the original Wendy's burgers, which were advertised as you had to eat them with a stack of napkins to mop up the juices. Each of us devoured every single bite. We also sampled one of the wings that are featured on Wing Wednesday ($1.00 a wing) and have already planned to go there for brunch on Sunday. The owner plans to have a location in each of the 7 cities. With the pending opening of the new location in Norfolk, I have no doubt he will do it. Truly the BEST burger you have ever eaten!

Captain Redfox

Awesomeness! We ordered the Empire Burger with onion rings, the P-town Burger with corn fritters the Burger Melt with fries, and a kids meal. No food was left behind, very fresh ingredients prepared wonderfully. The the only thing better than the food was the customer service. I was informed while dining that brunch is also served (check their website for times because I don't remember exact times) on the weekend.


I've frequented Gourmet Burger Bistro twice. Both times was on Sunday which is their all you can eat brunch only. Loved the atmosphere and they have the best French Toast I've ever had. My family and I dont eat pork but upon request we were able to order Turkey bacon and sausage (very good). They offer this simply prepared rice consisting of bell peppers, onions and seasoning which was absolutely delicious. Their menu items are varied and everything I ordered was delicious! I had only 1 wish and that was for milk which they don't offer. I love milk with anything sweet. (Its probably not cost effective if it's an unpopular request, in that milk carries an expiration date). I In conclusion, Burger Bistro ambience (music) is cheerful and inviting, good freshly prepared food, and prompt friendly service. It's a great oughting for a family meal! Update: Had a visit during the week for lunch, ordered lemon pepper wings. It was a bit disappointing because the wings had chicken feathers on them. I had to remove the skin where the feathers were in order to comfortably eat my wings, They were also overly salted. I will visit time I'll try another menu item. I'm pleased that this establishment is here and want to give every opportunity for success and longevity.

Lameka Mccray
