I ate at at JB's last night and all I can say is don't eat a burger from there. Meat is the frozen 100 to a box patties that are all fat. Cooked to death, dry and unappealing. Sad thing is I got the JB burger, which is a half pound burger, and paid $5.00 for it. Wish I had gone to Applebees or Lonestar. For a couple of dollars more, could have had a gourmet burger. Burger Hut's food may have gone somewhat downhill, but at least they use real cow, not pressed whatever. Fries were half cooked and greasy. Not impressed at all. Will try it one more time, though before I mark it off the list. Maybe a chicken sandwich or salad.

My family and I have always loved burger hut. The people or usually friendly and the food use to be wonderful. Unfortunately we went to burger hut on TUe and spent $36. Not a single thing my family got was worth eating. The HB steaks were very dry the philly steak sand looked like something someone had chewed up and spit out. The chicken tenders were so hard my 2 year daughter could not eat them. So I am saying next time I will go on up the street and try the new rest.

NO, SWEETIE, I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON TO SAY A NEGATIVE COMMENT ABOUT JB'S. I HAVE HEARD MANY. THE BURGERS ARE NO GOOD AND THAT IS A FACT. I DID NOT SAY EVERYTHING WAS BAD, JUST THE BURGERS. I PAID 5.00 FOR A BURGER THAT WAS SOME SORT OF PRESSED MEAT AND COOKED TO DEATH. NOT APPITIZING OR APPEALING IN ANY WAY. I SAID AT LEAST BURGER HUT USES REAL MEAT, NOT SOME SORT OF 100 TO A BOX FROZEN IMITATION PATTIES. I HAVE NOT TRIED A CHICKEN SANDWICH OR A SALAD OR EVEN A SHAKE FROM THERE, BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE. I WILL NEVER EAT ANOTHER HAMBURGER FROM JB'S. OH, FYI, I AM NOT ONE OF THE OWNERS OF THE BH.
No actually

I worked at the Burger Hut for years...and I assure you they have always used frozen beef patties. The only thing that is real hamburger patted out is the hamburger steaks. But the hamburgers themselves come from a box. Pure imitation I assure you.

well, I can say that me and 3 other family members ate at JB's this week and it is my last time. 2 of us ordered the hamburger steak dinner. What a joke that is. A plain dry piece of hamburger meat with bout 10 fries, 1 veggie n a piece of bread. No gravy whatsoever, greasy bread and unseasoned veggie. And all that for almost $8.00? BS! That's not including a drink either. I could have ate the same thing at Burger hut for much less with a drink and got gravy on my meat and fries. Jb's is busy cause everyone has to try it out at least once, then the new will wear off. Another family member got the philly steak sub, dry as a bone, no mayo, nothing and not lettuce and bout 1/4 ounce of meat. I give them 2 months tops. I have heard from alot of people who ate there and they won't be going back. I have known the former owners of the Burger hut and I know the new owners. Who they choose to sponsor is their business. I like their food, plain and simple.
whatever

Your a freaking moron! why dont you go to fats or applebees or lonestar, or hey take a trip to JC and go to logans road house, do you see roaches crawling around while you are eating, i dont think so! if a place gets bugs or has a problem with them they take care of them. trust me i have worked in the resturant business and when i did we never had bugs. it just shows how disgusting the place has gotten.

well I do eat at Fatz check your spelling,, it's not fats and Applebees and love them both. At least there, you don't get a piece of dry meat like I did at JB's. Anywhere food is served, you may not see them when you're there, but there are bugs of all kinds. Trust me, I know for a fact. Jb's prices are too much for the little of nothing that you get. I can and do get subs at subway for 5.00 for a footlong, not a dry 1/4 ounce of so called philly steak with no mayo or nothing. Just mark my word, they will be out of business in 2 months.
whatever

I could care less if i spelled something wrong, you got the point didnt you? and i sure as hell dont give a shit if you like JBs or not. i really dont think they will be gone in two months just cause a few people dont like their food, i have had several people say they loved it just like people have told you they dont like it and you dont. thats not the majority! duh!!!!!!! and about the bugs, i dont care what you say if a resaturant is really kept clean they wont have roaches! who knows what you are getting in your food at BH is there is roaches running around in the place, you might get a steak burger with a roach in it. i hope iit taste good for ya!

I have ate at both Burger Hut & JB's and to be honest, I don't like either one! I tried JB's last week. I went in with my husband and my son. We all ordered cheeseburgers, fries, and drinks. It looked appetizing until I took the first bite...the patty was so thin and way overcooked until it was almost stiff. The meat wouldn't even begin to cover the buns they use. I wish I had taken a pic and posted it actually. The fries were okay. I paid almost$19 for this and was not happy about it. It was very busy but that's no excuse to serve food like this to your customers, especially during your first week of opening! I'll just stick with BK or Mickey D's when I want a burger I suppose.
