“Really good burger, really good fries”
Review of BurgerFi

BurgerFi
Ranked #57 of 583 Restaurants in Gainesville
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American, Fast food
Description: Your local BurgerFi isn’t some industrialized fast food giant. They were started in a gourmet kitchen, by gourmet Chefs. Not knowing fast food, the back of the house is built to be less burger joint, more five-star restaurant. When they needed a sauce, the Chefs didn’t call a food supplier. They started chopping. Mixing. Cooking. Making better choices. BurgerFi is better to people: serving only the finest natural, certified angus burgers, dogs, hand-cut fries, frozen custard, craft beer, wine and more. They’re better to the environment: each location is built to environmentally sustainable best practices and includes earth-friendly elements. And, they’re better to animals: sourcing from one of the best ranches in the country. Where cattle roam free. Breathe mountain air. Eat grass and are treated humanely. BurgerFi never waivers from this high standard. This doesn't come easy. Certainly not cheap. Truth is there are simpler ways to put a burger on a bun. But, they're not better.

Good news for burger lovers in Gainesville: BurgerFi is clean, friendly service, plenty of parking and delicious burgers. And, you can order you fries just the way you like them.
Bad news: They have wine but you can't drink it outside, too bad for eating al fresco on some of the gorgeous evenings we've had lately.
Will definitely go back.

A burgers and dogs place using quality ingredients, made to order with excellent sides. Food and service are good, portions are large. A good choice for a quick lunch but be advised the place is crowded and the music is VERY LOUD, this is not the place to go if you plan to converse over lunch.

By far, the best burger I've had in a long time with just the right amount of toppings and great fries!

I am pretty particular about my burgers and this one is a great choice for a fast casual restaurant. In my opinion it blows Five Guys and Smashburger away. The shakes and onion rings are great as well. It was a little chaotic with the ordering process and I think the GPS table locator for the servers is hit or mis but I highly recommend for a great meal and burger at a good price.

This is a nicely designed hamburger and hot dog place with none of the fast food look, feel, or convenience. Despite the loud music, orders are taken efficiently and delivered to wireless transmitters if placed correctly on e-mats on the tables -- hence the BurgerFi name (I think).

With the only frozen custard in Gainesville, it was great to find cones, shakes, and sundaes made from something other than yogurt or ice cream. But like everything here, the prices seem way too high for what you get.

In our case a disappointing cheese burger, faux -Chicago dog, greasy onion rings, and $4 draft beers in plastic cups. Though made from Kobe beef, there was no discernable difference in flavor or quality, the beer was not that crafty, and the buns quickly melted into a sodden paste. During our lunch, most seemed to be looking longingly across the street at the 5 Guys, a better value by far.
