Better than Zips????? It is possible...for the most part...

Did I just say this was better than Zips????

It is - in a way. If you're sans-children and want a great house burger - one you'd make in the backyard with all your friends - then this is the place. Re: "sans-children" - Terry's is loud and the seating just isn't kid-friendly. It's really fun - but just not a place I'd go with kids.

We each had cheeseburgers with american cheese and all the good stuff (lettuce, pickle, mayo, etc...). We each got grilled onions - excellent addition!

My favorite part is when you ask for a knife - they bring you a huge serrated knife - wait for you to cut your burger and then take it back. It's jarring the first time - but it's fun.

I also want to let you know about the uniqueness of Terry's. You can get all this wild stuff - you can get goat or blue cheese, wine sauce, portabella mushrooms, scallops, etc... Most of those can even be gotten on the burger. But truly - in the end - just get the burger. It's amazing - astounding - fabulous - yummy - delicious! I recommend the goat cheese though - it's unique and fun.

The other thing that makes Terry's so great is the ambiance. It's got neon signs all over, these huge beer coolers, mismatched tables and stools, etc... It's loud and there's a huge range of patrons - from 21 year old beer guzzling guys to 60 year old Hyde Park couples.

Terry's is a very fun and unique spot to get a great burger and fries. I'd love to see them add sweet potato fries to the menu - I think it easily fits in their niche and would be a nice compliment to the burger.

Terry's definitely gets the 4 star = Oh need a minute here...cuz that is amazing!

  2. Terry's is awesome! I agree! It's not even 10AM right now and I'm ready for a big-ol' burger with a pile of their hand-cut fries. Thanks a lot! :)

  3. I've been there 3x. Only one time did my burger come out how i ordered it.

    Fries suck-out-loud. Every time they came our soft and wliting due to the oil not being hot enough.

  4. I'll have to say, I've been there twice and will go back again. Both times, crowded, both time, the beer was cold and the food was good and hot.

  5. I've only been out to Terry's once, and during the winter time, but did enjoy sitting outside and playing dice games with my GF Rachel at the time.

    The overwhelming amount of goat cheese that they added also makes the place unique.

  6. Word on the street is that Terry's is expanding. I agree that Terry's is not a kid friendly place, but, hope that they are able to accommodate children so that we can frequent the joint more often. I can't wait to try the chili!
