I like the food.. like the prices... Have been there several times and havent had a problem yet.

I would agree with "In Need" the the place could use an overhaul. Cut down the shrubs in the front, spruce up the inside for a nicer atmosphere. Add some tables (lunch it was hard to find a table).

My wife and I finally tried Black Meg. We ordered and our burgers came out in 3 minutes. That seemed strange but not really since our burgers were cold. It was obvious that the patties were precooked and just sitting waiting for someone to order so they could throw it on a bun. The bacon was even cold on my burger! The onion rings were cold and greasy and also sitting around it appears. The fries were OK. I really had high expectations after reading other reviews but the quality wasn't there. If I wanted fast I would have gone to McDonalds. I wanted a good old fashion burger but the cook took shortcuts. Sorry Black Meg but I won't be coming back.
My wife and I had this same issue, we went close to closing time so we thought it was just that they were trying to not fix anything new, that is still no excuse though. But seems this is a regular thing with them. Burgers were big and potential, but the obvious lack of care for customers and quality definitely shows. I don't think I am willing to give it another shot. There has been several businesses go under at this location, if they don't do something about this, I foresee them tanking as well.

I've ate at the Black Meg a several times and I have to say I won't go back there . The inside of the restaurant is very trashy , floor is always dirty and a lot of flies there.
I ate a Swiss Mushroom Burger there and the Mushroom were cold . The last time I went there with my Daughters and had Burgers , we all got sick later on . Sorry to say it , but the people who work in there don't look clean either . Sorry won't come back

The best burgers in town are cooked on the grill that is on my back deck.

Xedash, I think you are making up a story, did you contact The Black Meg and let them know, or are you just full of Bull Crap. TO say the people aren't clean, you are obviously full of S H I T, plain and simple.

and I have been in there several times and the place is not trashy, what a bunch of haters.

the place is a little dirty, but it contributes to the "atmosphere".

I have eaten numerous times at Black Meg's and have never had a bad burger. The service there has been great, except one time with the girl that checked us out, it was not that she was rude, but compared with the other people she was a little quiet (maybe new). I always recommend Black Meg to all my friends and family. Thank you Black Meg for a great burger combo at an excellent price.

Havn't been able to check in here for awhile. As hard as we try, we won't be able to please everyone, We use the best beef around, 100% fresh pure Angus chuck. We offer you the choice of 4 types of cheese which we slice fresh in house,cheddar,pepper jack, Swiss, provolone plus American cheese, and fresh veggies. Our burgers are cooked and held at a temp of 180 degrees for no longer than 10 min. thats about how long it takes to cook a burger that size. For $5 flat you get a 6+ oz burger your choice of cheese, with all the fixings,(we don't charge for grilled onions or to add jalapenos)1/2 lb of fries and a 24 oz drink.If you get a bad burger let us know, we will fix you another. Most people want thier food fast if we waited until you put your order in to start cooking your burger, your wait time would be about 15 to 20 minutes easy. We are trying every time to put out the best burger we can, will we mess up sometimes? of course, just let us know, and we will fix it. Now the cleanliness issue some have raised. The Cove building is very old, but we keep it clean, any time anyone wants to check out our kitchen just ask,(with the exception of lunch time we are just to busy to show you around at that time.)The best time is around 9 am you will be able to see how clean the whole restaurant is every morning, plus see what kind of prep is going on. You don't have to give us a heads up either, just show up at 9 am any morning and check us out. That being said, see how many if any other restaurants will offer you the same invite. Remember our first concern is serving our customers sure we clean as we go, but if you happen to walk in at the end of a busy rush and the restaurant is not up to par, give us a break, our crew is hard working, and they will start getting it back in shape asap. Our last health inspection was not only perfect, the inspector announced to the staff, "this restaurant is one of the cleanest in the city" He didn't have to say that. We don't have new tables and chairs, and the floor is old with terible uneven tiles which cause our tables to wobble at times. we are doing our best, and will continue to keep trying to make it better. Thank you all for your business.

I heard that they fired one of their best employee's that worked there I cant remember his name(the one with all the tattoos the main one I remember was the skull on his hand) but he always worked and he worked at both stores..I recently ran into him the other day at walmart and asked what happened and he said he got fired for missing 1 day...WHAT KIND OF SHIT IS THAT....He seemed like he loved working for your company every time I went there..I just think they made a mistake in firing that guy he worked hard and he made visiting Black Meg fun and entertaining..

They have the best Clam roll. We lived in NE for many years and since Black Meg has came to Copperas Cove I have not missed my Clam roll and they will even toast the roll for you. Keep up the good work.

Mel's has outrageous prices, and now if you and a partner order only one order of fries (because the order is huge) they charge you extra if you share.

We eat at Black Meg's every few weeks, I always get the Bacon burger and when my brotr was stationed here he would get the cowboy. These are some big burgers! My kids and I love the food, especially the seasoned fries and Meg sauce. My only complaint would be sometimes we get an order of fries that does not have seasoning on them.

My husband and I wanted to give Black Meg in Copperas Cove a second try thinking the first time was just a plan mistake but clearly it was not. We thought the burgers were made to order "fresh, hot and juicy". The Burgers were cold as if they were sitting for awhile and not juicy at all and the buns were cold too. The onion rings were also cold and soggy as if they to were sitting for awhile. They also forgot some extras that we ordered and failed to offer anything when we called about it - my husband had to ask. We will not go there ever again and we will make sure our friends and family will not waste any money in there Burger joint too. Burger King sells burgers hotter and juicer than Black Megs so called special ordered burgers.

My burgers were good last week, but were put together very messy.
