Merv's is no-frills kind of place where you know without a doubt that you're biting into meat. They cut their burgers in half so you can handle them. They serve fresh cut fries. I recommend you try the spiral slides. You can get a 12 oz mug of beer for about $2. There's a game room in the back, including... More

We have lived here (on the other side of town) for almost 20 years and heard about this place 18 years ago. "Great Burgers, but rowdy bikers bar", so we never went. We're always us looking for great burgers and we found ourselves "in the neighborhood" at lunch time and decided to check it out. It was really good. So... More

The sign on the door says the best burger in town and I believe it!! The burgers are fresh not frozen parties you get at a lot of places. They have hand cut homemade fries. We got the large order to split between the two of us and I believe the small would have been plenty. I would definitely recommend... More

Great food and service!! Fried pickles are yummy. And the French fries are amazing. Video games for the kids to keep them occupied.

When you do not want to take all of the effort to make burgers at home, try Merv's. Consistently good. Far better than any chain, and I would say they edge out other excellent local burger places due to the size and pricing. We have not been disappointed in the years we have been enjoying their burgers.

The sign is true. They have the best burger in Tennessee. The only downside is they don't serve Coca-Cola products. :( Order a basket of fries to share.

The food is good with many great deals for the prices charged. The chili cheese fries are fantastic and large enough for two or a growing teen. Merv's is famous for their hamburgers and they live up to their legend of one of the best hamburgers in Chattanooga.

The three magpies is just across the road from park inn hotel. Great atmosphere and great food and service. Much better than staying in the hotel with poor reviews for food. Thoroughly recommend it. The steak and ale pie is as good as it gets. Sublime

A good friend & I have lunch together every few weeks since both of us craved a cheeseburger with fries or onion rings we decided on Mervs...we were not disappointed. Burgers made to order with all the additions. If this is the fare you like give Mervs a try
