Lindburgers was a "gourmet" burger joint in Wegmans Plaza - Penfield with an aviation theme. They had many (50) different varieties of hamburger. This was the only out-of-state location for a small Florida based chain, as its owner's wife is a native Rochestarian. Closed October 2017.

2006-11-19 22:41:27 Wow, great hamburgers. They are very juicy and are cooked to your specs! —BenMargolis
2007-03-23 08:04:46 Hamburgers are ok here. Sometimes they cook a little too on the rare side even if you ask for medium-well. So be sure to specify how you want it cooked. —KimBee

2007-09-07 19:09:20 Every burger I've had here has been boring. Seriously. Not good, not bad, just plain. —MarcVera
2008-03-27 12:05:13 I have been working at Lindburgers for over a year and I eat there just about everynight i work and am still finding more delicous things, my favorites so far are the McFatty, Penfield Burger, and the Buffalo Sandwich —SeanBateman
2008-06-27 13:10:48 Lindburgers is great. The Gatehouse is better, but Lindburgers is always a good choice for a great burger. Cheeburger, Cheeburger is another equivalent alternative. Never had a bad burger here. —MrRochester
2008-08-16 10:50:42 The Wife and I ate at Lindbugers for the first time last night and while the food was simply ok, the server, Ann Marie S. was very very bad at her job. I had the #31, Naples Chili Cheeseburger. Things could have been a lot better if the chili tasted of something even akin to chili, rather than old beans and weak tomato ketchup. The Wife, she had chicken fingers with fries, both quite acceptable.
The real issue with Lindburgers is the service. Both my Wife and I were both absolutely horrified with the service, in particular, the waitron Ann Marie S. as she was listed on my receipt. I was terribly disappointed to see her carrying on a conversation with the table seated directly next to us. It was the oddest thing I have ever seen from a server in a restaurant where they were supposed to be working. We actually felt like we were sitting in a stranger’s kitchen eating while they kibitzed over coffee. We even felt the need to apologize for interrupting their rather extensive and involved conversation about the couple’s new 3000+ square ft. house with a kitchen that needs much more cabinet space, an island and more counter space too, just so The Wife and I could order something to eat. It also has 3 bedrooms on one end of the house and one on the opposite end, I think I can safely say we both feel really involved in these peoples housing now. I think we should go over and help them renovate, lay tile, refinish cabinets and such like that. As I said it was the damndest thing I have ever seen.
Another waitron brought our meal and again we had to interrupt Ann Marie and the new house having family. I was feeling brave and asked for some side sauces to go with my burger and fries as did The Wife. Ann Marie brings over a vat of bleu cheese that we could have bathed in for The Wife's chicken and she brings me a few grams of mayo, which I put on my fries. Then I asked for another and she brings another copy of the tiny mayo cup. By this time I have tried the burger and realize that the chili has almost no flavor so I asked for some hot sauce. Now what type of hot sauce would you put on chili? Tabasco, Red Hot maybe, and the kinds of things that a normal person might want on a burger I would imagine. The waitron has a litany of questions about what kind of hot sauce I wanted. I pride myself on my culinary knowledge and couldn't decipher a damn thing she was saying. Someone else, later, brings another Vat of Red Hot. I could have taken a bath in it, much like those boys at Burger King did. In fact, the next time I really want a burger, I will take The Wife to Burger King. I am sure the service will be so much better and the food will if not better, at least as good. —ShadoeD
2008-12-30 20:45:05 The food is GREAT, have a wide variation of food, and awesome service!!!!! My fiance and I go in there all the time and never have had a problem. My favorite meal there is the BBQ chicken Salad and my fiances favorite meal is the Hawaiian burger which has pinneapple and sweet and sour sauce on it. People need to understand that everyone has their taste preference, for example that review from 8-16-2008 I believe their chili is very good, yes their mayo portions are small but why waste, when you can ask for more!, and there are plenty of options for hot sauce, for example wing sauce, tobasco sauce, and meat hot sauce (many customers ask for many different types of hot sauces to put on burgers or dip fries in!!!!) Plus I bet the blue cheese is portioned that big because it is usually served for salads! (I have worked as a server in the restuarant business for 8 years so I understand) On one note make sure you listen to the server on temps for your burger, their temps are rarer than most places but it tells you on the menu.
So Lindburgers is a great place to go to get a big and great meal and I would highly recommend it! —lml
2008-12-31 10:47:49 I went back to Lindburgers recently and while my burger was still good, the interior of the restaurant needs to be gutted. It felt really dirty and worn. I suggest the owner do a makeover. While in another city recently, I tried the Counter: http://www.thecounterburger.com/menu/. The burgers at Lindburgers are better, but the Counter had a really comfortable interior. —MrRochester
2009-01-02 04:55:56 Eh, I wasn't impressed. The waitress we had was fantastic and the burger I ordered was served medium-rare, but the atmosphere was sorta drab. My Hawaiian burger could have been more interesting. I question an establishment that is willing to serve a Hawaiian burger but is unable to properly execute one. —MariahBetz
2009-06-23 16:20:34 I took my son to Lindburgers recently. We both ordered burgers medium. Both came out well done, no pink. My asian burger with teriyaki and herbed cheese was dry. My son's cajun burger was very hot, due to the sauce, but the burger was also dry. The waitress was very attentive. I had the sweet potato fries which were limp and not very tasty. His regular french fries were so-so. I have eaten here a number of time and keep wondering why I go back. For a burger place, the burgers are never juicy, like at Flaherty's Three Flags. —MikeSorenson
2010-02-28 14:12:59 This was my worst experience at a burger joint. I found hair in my food but, that was not the most part. I was very disturbed by the manner in which the employees were treated. The owner or chef was yelling and cussing at them. This disrupted my meal and I don't think people should be treated like that for any reason. —Petepenn
2012-06-20 14:37:20 Interesting burger variety, but i wasn't blown away by my burger. My wife's turkey reuben was pretty good. I would certainly go back and try something different, though. Restaurant was pretty empty for being around dinner time. —AndrewL
