    I hardly ever get over to Waltham; however, there is a Halfway Cafe in Watertown Sq which has good burgers and fries.

        I think Tempo is still serving Kobe burgers.

          Not in Waltham but close by Fordee's Grill in Watertown makes an excellent 10oz cheeseburger. Also the Halfway Cafe in Watertown has really good burgers and hand-cut french fries. Sadies in Waltham has tender teriyaki steak tips but I have never tried their burgers.

            I like the mushroom swiss burger at the skellig with curry sauce on the side to dip it in. A little weird but good. They never overcook it and its juicy.

              John Brewer's tavern (I think that's what it's called)

                It's been a while, but Joe Sent Me on Main St. has decent burgers, with excellent fries. Salad selection isn't bad, either. Pretty basic atmosphere.

                As mentioned above, the Kobe burger at Tempo is very good for a more upscale (and noisy!) environment.

                  Tempo has best burger in Waltham. Actually best burger in the immediate area. Won't be disappointed.
