Great burgers. My wife got a drink off the menu that didn’t have prices. It ended up being $12 and pretty small. Seems expensive but did say it was really good.

We were first seated in a booth that was very tight, then moved upstairs to a more comfortable table but the area was extremely load, we could not carry on a conversation. We waited for drinks and our food order which took a bit of time, but we waited and we were served and finally able to have a chat with friends. The waitress came to us after a short time after we finished eating and rudely said a party is waiting for this table after we over waited to be served. NO EXCUSES

Great setting and ambiance. Quality of food and service of the server was good. We all did the Burger and Bourbon special. The consistency of the pour seemed obvious for the bourbon. The higher end bourbon from the selection was clearly poured very sparingly versus the others. Not sure if it was an inexperienced bartender, short on bourbon or by design. Both of my Basil Hayden pours barely had two sips, and those that got the Woodford reserve had a quarter glass. I expect to pay more for a higher end bourbon, but quantity shouldn't also be less.

It was our first time eating here and it was delicious. We made a reservation and sat down right away. Our server was great and the food was delicious. If we are craving a great burger in the future we will make the trip to East Aurora from Depew for a 189 burger and a shot of bourbon!

As always our experience at 189 was excellent. We had the spicy crab dip appetizer to start. I personally was not a fan, but my son loved it. I thought it was pasty. For my entree I ordered the spinach and artichoke grilled cheese with fresh cut fries and my son had the spicy bbq burger. Both hit the spot. As a side note make sure you order the 189 sauce to dip your fries in! Yum!

Where to begin? We had burgers, mine was the All American and the wife had the portobello swiss. Both were to our liking, flavorful and plenty juicy. The sweet potato fries were incredible and the honey sauce pushed them over the top. A nice selection of craft beers as well. Our server was friendly and attentive. The prices are fair. This was probably our 4th visit and I'm never disappointed.

We went here for the first time Sunday. 5 different orders..5 great meals! Friendly wait staff. Wonderful patio. 4 stars only because we had to deal with a few flies. Maybe screened in outdoor space? Will go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to friends.

189 burger Review
Pleasant
I was looking at the online menu & noticed you could make a reservation on ‘Open Table,’ So I did & was able to get the exact time for the same evening!
I met a friend for dinner. We had a lovely cozy table in the front window where we had great natural light & a great view of Main Street.
We both ordered the spinach artichoke grilled cheese sandwich, mine with grilled brussel sprouts, my friends’ with a small salad. We both loverd our meals and this sandwich was worth writ f this review. It was So Delicious!!!
Our server was great, place is very quaint, clean and enjoyable!
Will visit again for sure, and highly recommend this spot in EA.

Go for burgers and bourbon- or lunch/dinner , it is always great! Always love to try a new burger and the loaded fries can’t be beat. Great bourbon selection and tasty cocktails!
Skip the brunch, it is overpriced and underwhelming.

Made our first visit to 189 Burger and it won't be our last. I had a burger with bacon mayo on it. It was delish and the house made chips were great too! Others in my group also voiced delicious opinions.

Loved everything about 189 Burger during our first visit. The only reason I gave Food 4 stars instead of was I thought that the homemade chips and sweet potato fries were just slightly overdone. And I prefer honey butter with sweet potato fries instead of plain honey. The Greek burger and the Pot Roast Dip were out of this world!
