Mr Bartley's Burger Cottage

Burgers in Cambridge

Packed with small tables and hungry college students, this burger joint has been a Harvard Square institution for more than 50 years. Bartley’s offers two dozen different burgers, including topical newcomers with names such as Trump Tower and Tom Brady Triumphant; sweet-potato fries, onion rings, thick frappés and raspberry-lime rickeys complete the classic American meal.

Be aware that this place is old school: credit cards not accepted; no bathroom on-site.
