Cheeburger Cheeburger was a 50's-style chain burger place offering burgers in five different sizes, ranging from the 5.5 oz. Classic to the huge (20 oz.) Famous Pounder; add fries, onion rings and a drink. They also offered other sandwiches and wraps plus salads to round out the menu. Their Invent Your Own Shake or Malt was popular as well. See Online Menu for details.
The Rochester location was originally in the Port of Rochester (the former Fast Ferry terminal) in Charlotte, so it was only a seasonal venue. Outside seating was limited, so you sometimes had to wait if you want to watch the boat traffic on the Genesee River. According to the Democrat and Chronicle, the owners closed the Port of Rochester location in August 2015 and re-opened on November 6, 2015 at CityGate, in the Upper Mount Hope area of the city.
In October 2018, Cheeburger Cheeburger in CityGate closed due to eviction. According to WROC TV-8, the eviction notice was given by Marshal Sande Macaluso. See Cheeburger evicted from CityGate in Rochester

2008-08-31 22:27:47 Had lunch there today and really enjoyed the treat. Some of the best onion-rings outside of an expensive restaurant - french fries were excellent as well. The variety of burger sizes is nice with different appetites to whet. Great selection of toppings options for the burgers - you don't usually have grilled red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes selections. The Iced-Coffee had a great fresh-brewed flavor. These theme places really do take me back to my high-school days in the 50's. —BradMandell
2008-09-01 18:14:30 Great burgers and milkshakes- and when it's nice out it's fun to sit on the outdoor patio and watch boats go by. —ShawnaLusk

2010-07-31 17:22:24 Great meal after a day at the beach. Good sized burger and great assortment of topics for them. Seems the challenge is more of a fun thing than a real challenge though, it was pretty simple to eat. Fries/onion rings are cooked in peanut oil, so if you're allergic like me, pass on those. We were seated right away, and considering the size of the burgers, the serving time wasn't long at all. The patio has a nice view of the harbor. —Ackj
2010-11-17 17:48:14 I went to this place a couple of times while I lived in Buffalo and wasn't overly impressed. The burger was... a burger... a typical, chain restaurant, overcooked, burger. Five Guys does a better job. —BatGuano
2012-05-30 16:45:32 Great fries. Great onion rings. Bland burgers (cooked well done no matter how they're ordered). Tattoos and wife-beaters and beer guts abound in the patrons, regardless of age or sex. —bionicsimmons
