The former Green Wasabi at 703 Chestnut Street has a new tenant. It appears that Prime Burger Co., will be opening shortly and if you trust awnings, the restaurant will be serving burgers, shakes, sandwiches, salads and soups.

    Just ate one. EXTREMELY disappointing and very overpriced. Nothing “prime” about the frozen patty they use.

  • Slim Trent

    If you value Great Customer service and good food, dont go here, it’s the pitts, the servers are cold and so is the food. If they dont do something great quick its going to end up like the last five places that resided there, shuttered, and some of the previous tenants were decent. Go at your own risk. One word I would use to sum it up “putrid”,

    • Shawn

      Funny you mention that about the service. My co-worker wanted to order the children’s burger just to try it and they told her she couldn’t. I’ve never seen a buisness, especially a new one, turn down a sale. I give them till the summer ….

        Never maxe it til Summer

    Don’t waste your time or money. Tasteless frozen food, customer service is horrible, wait time 30-45 minutes for a burger! Definitely will be a temporary spot if major changes aren’t made quickly. Extremely dissapointing.

  • CJ Simon

    Definite disappointment. Burger was bland, bun was stale. Burger and fries were cold.

  • Slim Trent

    Whats crazy about the whole thing is, the food was stale on the first day it opened, pure shite

    The Milkshakes are garbage here. First off, they are $5 and they give them to you in a like a 12 oz. clear plastic cup. I got the Vanilla Bean shake and they put way too much milk in it so it was very, very thin. Taste was well below average. I could walk a block a way and go to Burger King, pay $3 and get twice the amount of shake and it will probably taste better. I’m going to avoid this place until they get their shit straight. Which is a shame because I work less than a block away from this place and I am always looking for a good place to eat lunch.

      AND… It took them at least 15 minutes to make it for me.

    It was rough the first week but Prime Burger Co will only get better with feedback.
    I have seen improvement with their food and staff. The beef and zero beef options keeps me coming. The food and atmosphere is worth my dollar. I had a shake tonight and enjoyed every sip. It was the perfect portion for me (I had the chocolate truffle).

    • Slim Trent

      Really, did someone pay you to say this

  • NotTheOwnerOfPrimeBurgerCo

    Imagine my delight to discover a new burger place opened just minutes from my office. Then my delight doubles when I am informed that they offer both beef and zero beef burgers! Triple my delight to find a perfectly portioned milkshake surrounded by atmosphere worthy of my every dollar!!! I pray that every non-owner review is wrong, and I won’t get assaulted by an angry mob of dissatisfied customers when I try to patronize this ever improving establishment. Or maybe, to avoid any further disappointment in my life, I may just go to Burger King and try their $3 milkshake.

    How do you open a Burger place and the buns are stale??? That immediately tells me the people cooking my food aren’t very trustworthy or sanitary people. I’ll never go back here again.
