This is a really fun restaurant. The staff is super friendly without being 'fake polite', the food is great and they serve very generous portions- like 1/2 pound burgers-a great value for a sit down restaurant! It's kitschy, campy, fun. I

I do not agree with those who enjoy this place. I had horrible experience there. The waitress took my order as the same time as my buddy and served us 20 minutes apart. The staff was not enjoyable to be around and I hate to admit that I

Hamburger Mary's is a colorful place to eat with good food. The sampler appetizer platter is awesome. The handcrafted beer is unique. If you are a person who has an open mind and loves new things - head on over. If you have a closed mind - skip it. FUN TIME!

Pros: Great Food - Fun Atmosphere

The answer is Hamburger Mary's. What a fun place...anywhere that delivers your check in a high-heel is FINE BY ME. My husband and I love going to this Andersonville riot.

I love going to Mary's Attic upstairs for the karaoek and open mic night. I just wish the stage was big enough so my group could perform there. If you go you will love the atmosphere.

Daytime: First mimosa free with brunch? Done. Nighttime: Mary's Attic upstairs is, well an attic. Tiny and adorable and there is always something fantastic going on, whether it's MaryOke or an open mic night. It's a really cute place all the time.

Great burgers in a kitschy atmosphere. My favorite is their Mary's minis. You can buy them individually, so you don't have to eat a whole plate of sliders. The staff is amazing and incredibly attentive. Where else can you get your bill delivered in a stiletto?

My husband and I were looking for a new place to try this afternoon. He suggested this place, so we went. We were seated pretty quickly, just had to wait for a table to be cleaned off. Host was very helpful and friendly. Our waitress on the other hand... We ordered drinks, I ordered a drink, my husband a soda. It took about 15 minutes for my drink to come, when she said it was going to be a few more minutes for the soda, he switched to a drink and I asked for a water when she had a minute. Which didn't seem to make her very happy. Ordered, food came out fairly quick, it was decent. But our server was too busy waiting on a different table to even check in. Then she disappeared. We had to ask the host for water, which he brought immediately. She did show up to drop off the check (which I agree with previous reviewer, is disgusting to put in a shoe!!)
Maybe we were just expecting more, but we will not be going back to Hamburger Mary's! I think we will try this Huey's, the other's have mentioned.

This is a fun place with really decent flavorful food. A big variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and some really creative drinks. Most of the staff is fun and seem to enjoy their work. Nothing fancy but never been disappointed!

Pros: It feels alive and friendly

Cons: Occasionally a little slow - but not usually

This is the worst restaurant in Andersonville. If you want a good burger, go across the street to Huey's. At Mary's you will just be paying extra for horrible food, bad service, bad attitude and a bad time. How you can make a burger taste that bland is beyond understanding, and a half pound of bad burger is hard to swallow. Don't waste your time telling the owner, he thinks this place is a burger palace. Come to think about it, just don't waste your time in this restaurant.

Pros: They are not the only restaurant in Andersonville

Cons: Stepping through the door!

I went there with a couple of friends from Calif. They had just adopted a child and wanted to revisit Hamburger Mary. On their first visit last Nov. The staff, atmosphere was great, maybe they had just opened, this time around if was a terrible experience. It was a warm July night and we want to eat outdoors. The hostess seemed like she was tired, bored and no personality of wanting to assisted us. It was not that crowded because it was a weeknight. We were told it would be a min. because all the tables were used, and someone had to bring out more. Well that min. turned to 15 mins. Someone did come out to set the tables up, but was told to come back inside. My friend asked the waiter, who seem rude and uncarrying on the situation{if he needed help, he should have asked for assistance]After waiting for over 15min. and those of you who have kids when they are hungry, need I say more.We just left, went to get the kids a hamburger at Huey's across the street. Which by the way, The burgers are much better, and they do have REAL Chicago polish & Fries.We ended up going to Charlie Ale south on Clark st. The eat outdoors, service was excellent, staff is professional and we ended up giving the waiter a excellent tip .With business coming and going in Andersonville abd the resturants are a plenty, I cannot believe that this establishment will be around to much longer with that current staff & attitude. They better hope Mary's attic will carry them because the food is horrible & overpriced. The Hamburger Mary is San Fran. is much more professional and the gay staff is attitude free, this staff should fly out there and get some lessons .

Pros: if you like a drink, wait until Mary's Attic opens

Cons: Bad service,Neg. staff attitude, Overpriced, Food not that great, Staff needs to be retrain on customer service

I went to Hamburger Mary's last night, and absolutely loved it. They have an inventive selection of Hamburgers. I ordered the Big Kahuna Burger with a veggie pattie. Portions were large, fries were great. Quick service. Upbeat atmosphere with hilarious waitress. However, if you lack humor and prefer formality, this spot is not for you.

I have been to Hamburger Mary's 4 times- ok maybe a glutton for punishment - but I so want it to be successful - it is *gay* friendly or gay restaurant depending on when you go - but it seems that the staff equate that with treating everyone poorly - as if that is part of the kitsch. The food is mediocre at best - and very expensive at $15 a burger. The service is horrific - took us a half hour to track down our server who promised new coffee in a few minutes - then got mad when we asked where it was. Hostess was useless when we complained - and so was HM when we wrote them - told us we had their *BEST* server the last time we were in. The worn high heel for the bill is Gross - not cute - had it been a plastic or ceramic high heel - then cute - but when you realize this shoe came off someones foot and sold at Howard Brown - YUCKO. 4th Time was a charm - we won't be back - you're better off at Huey's across the street - prices are right, service at the counter and no expectations and no $15 burger!

Have heard about Hamburger Marys from a number of friends who live in the neighborhood. Interior is interesting (probably looks better in dim lighting). Ordered a sandwich (admit, I did not try the burger) but the food was terrible. Will NOT go back

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: you get what you pay for

The food here is ok, great place to people watch. I ordered tea and the water was not steaming hot. When I said something to the waiter, he was like, there's nothing I can do to make it hotter, and you should drink it faster!!! Helloooo, isn't heat a critical element of a restaurant's operation?

The music is played too loud and the wait staff have an attitude when you ask them to turn it down. I went there with a friend on a Sunday afternoon and could not have a decent conversation because the music was too loud and there was a large group of patrons who were screeching to every word of a song by Aretha Franklin. I eventually had to sit right next to my friend in order to have a conversation. And yes, it is a gay hangout so if one is uncomfortable with that they should steer clear. It didn't bother me as I enjoy people watching:))

I met up with friends at HAMBURGER MARY'S on a Saturday night and it was packed! Good sign! We then went upstairs to their new bar I believe called MARY'S ATTIC. Talk about totally packed which was great! The music was very dance techno which I love but a bit too loud. Great looking crowd of gay men and unfortunately no women. The decor was cool!
