I ate a smoked Gouda cheese burger, it was delicious. Killer fries and a wide selection of draft beers. Unless you like Karaoke, call to make sure it isn't happening when you are eating. The food is outstanding.

My wife and I are on a "Boston burger quest" and this spot did not disappoint. It is a small unpretentious neighborhood place with an OK beer selection and tight tables. The menu has many burger options and we each chose one. The burgers were both cooked exactly to order and the onion rings were especially good. Definitely one of the best burgers in the Boston area.

Word of mouth told us that R.F. O'Sullivan's has the best burgers in Boston, and we are not disappointed. Absolutely the best hamburgers we've had in years in any city. Not only a wide variety of interesting types (e.g., blue cheese buried inside the burger), but also done to perfection, with a crispy outside and tender but not bloody inside. As a bonus-- the onion rings are the best I've had in years. So often the onion is not cooked down, and so in one bite you get the whole onion and are left with a batter ring empty of onion. These onions were so soft you could actually bite one piece of the ring at a time. Also, one of our party got the fish and chips, and this was also excellent.
Service was impeccable, even though we were from out of town and had the gear on of a rival sports team!

The burgers were delicious! There was a huge variety of burgers prepared in different ways to choose from and I can't wait to go back and try a new one. Cozy atmosphere and open kitchen allows you to watch the burgers being cooked (depending on where you sit). Very reasonably priced a great casual place for beers and burgers.

The burger takes a while to cook so put your order in early. Nice atmosphere with TV's and such, not a great beer selection but a good place to drink a beer. The fries and massive, you get about 5 but they are plenty. Amazing onion rings too, you can order your burgers with half fries and half rings. Any burger you want they can make. Great neighborhood joint.
