HH is a fun, local burger stand. It's wonderful to be able to get "fast food" from something that isn't a chain. The staff was friendly and helpful. The burgers and shakes (malts) were excellent and big. For us, it's only a short walk when...More

I'm 70, and I can remember this place since I was old enough to read! Good hamburgers in the 1950s style.

My Mother took me to Hamburger Heaven years ago. It was her high school hang out. I go there for lunch. Double Hamburger, fries and a root beer float. Life is good! I believed it opened in 1948. Outdoor eating or in your car.

Great burgers and great root beer. Portions are generous, patties are 1/3 pound and topped with bacon, cheese, tomatoes, and even olives. Only outside seating is available in some old picnic tables, which is the one thing I'd improve on. Everything else was great.

Stopped here as we got into town. Those who ordered burgers and fries enjoyed them. I ordered the chicken ceasar salad and it wasn't good at all. Homemade croutons that tasted like greasy balls of bread Something in the salad was rancid. I don't know...More

Since 1948, we've been proud to serve the village of Elmhurst some of it's favorite food. Along the way, we've managed not just to live history, but to see the young grow old and graceful. Nostalgia?...perhaps, but it's has been a true "Back to the Future" journey for all of our past & present friends. Thank you to all that have supported us through out the years. We truly appreciated it! We promised then and we promise today to make great food and link generations with every little bite.
