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.

Great burgers, great tater tots! Lots of burger options. Small seating area upstairs. More seating outside. Friendly staff. Easy free parking in a large parking lot nearby and convenient to shops and other areas of Carytown.

I can't eat fast food burgers anymore - they just don't compare! They have just about any burger you could think of - and if you find one they haven't thought of - you can still make it that way! Love the staff at the two locations I've been to. Short Pump looks awesome - love the wall art! Carytown... More
