I visited this eatery, because of a referral. I am a burger lover! This burger tasted "nice and different". The meat is from New Zealand, so there's a slightly different flavor, but not bad..... Service was great! No matter what you order, you get a small salad..... A little pricey..... I would visit again if I'm in the area...

One may assume, from the name, that the burgers here are fantastic. And one would be correct! The beer is also wonderful, with an array of off-the-beaten-path selections. Dig this place! Belly up to the bar. If I'm in town, it's likely I'll already be there.

Deliciously huge burgers with super topping and fun fries. Went with a large crowd and the seated us without trouble, reservations recommended. Drinks were fast, food was fast and tasty. I love the lamb burger. I also like that you can substitute any protein in their sandwiches. Good beer list. Will definitely return when in Durham.

I almost don't want to write a review so that I can keep "the Bach" a hidden gem but... do unto others... And so here I am telling you all how fantastic and I mean FANTASTIC the burgers and fries are here. The service is always solid, prices very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you get. And your burger comes with a little side salad whether you like it or not so eat up--salad is good for you!

First time coming here. Great atmosphere on the inside. Waitstaff was very helpful recommending items from the menu. It took about half an hour to get our food, but well worth the wait. Plenty of free parking near restaurant. If you are looking for a tasty burger, this is the place to go. Much better than Red Robin.

Delicious food & great service! It was dinnertime and I arrived before the friends I was meeting up with - the hostess went ahead and seated me, and the waiter answered my menu questions, got us waters, and made sure I was well taken care of even though my friends weren't there yet. I had several options for what I could eat that was gluten-free and soy-free. Despite all of this awesomeness, they get a 4-star rating this time because they were out of veggie burgers, and my vegetarian friend had to settle for a salad. That shouldn't happen.

This place was great. They had a wide selection of cocktails, good sodas, tasty burgers, and three sauces that i tried with my fries, and they were delicious. There is also a place to get massages and things like that near it, so that's an option. Would recommend to a friend.

I never really liked burgers before coming to this place. Now it's the only place I will eat one. They have an amazing beer selection. The staff is attentive and extraordinarily nice. All around an amazing experience!!

The gluten free options are awesome. The burger and bun was perfect. Atmosphere was relaxing. The servers attentive. Over all perfect.

First time in Durham and we couldn't have picked a better first meal! We got fries with dipping sauces as an appetizer, and they were great. I ate a South Lamb burger, which ended up pairing perfectly with my Sage Advice drink. My wife got a regular ol' burger and loved it. Also just a very comfortable atmosphere.

Fantastic burgers! High quality meat and interesting/fresh sauces. Would recommend the East Coast burger and the three cream fries

Delicious burgers, perfectly cooked. Range of sauces for your fries is a delight. Seating was quick, service is excellent, and prices are reasonable. You'll be glad you came. We'll be back!

Excellent burger. Who would have thought a burger from New Zealand in Durham would be so good! And in addition they have a burger of the month which they send $1 per burger to charity!

A small group of friends, my girlfriend and I ventured in to Burger Bach on a Saturday evening around 6:30pm. The wait was 45 minutes which was fine, not an issue at all because you could smell the food every time the door opened and it was mouth watering. Once seated, we couldn't order drinks because they were "out of glasses". I get they were busy but my daughter was served water in a plastic cup when we had specifically asked for something different. Her beverage wasn't brought to the table until after our fries were. The beer selection was good but the service was pretty trash. The food tasted great but it wasn't worth not being able to even get a glass of water for 20 minutes. I recommend you go elsewhere like Bull City Burger and Brewery.

Always delicious. Great beer selection and good cocktails. Is nice if you have kids, loud so if your kids isn't up to par, no one else notices. Get here early if you're a family.

I love Burger Bach. Great oysters. Great lamb sandwiches and dishes. Good drinks, good fries, not too expensive for what one gets. Does have outdoor seating facing 9th St Harris Teeter Parking lot

Bach is very good, not great in comparison to the other high end burger joints of recent. Service is okay but spotty when busy. Extensive draft beer menu. They do have a good selection of oysters as well, but those tend to sell out during the night. I go back once a year to replay the experience. There are cheaper and there are better for everything they do, but Bach delivers a solid "good" meal.

Great burgers. The salad vinaigrette was not appealing at all. Amazing beer selection. Just get the fries instead of salad and you'll have a five star meal

I came back today and tried the The Black & Blue Tuna. The Tuna was pretty tasty, but the triple cream blue cheese was nasty. It smelled like sour milk and tasted awful. I’m definitely sticking with a good old fashion burger next time. Original review - Excellent Burgers and Great Fries!!! I love this place! The service is also very good. I usually only eat here on my lunch break, so I don’t usually indulge in the alcohol. But they do have tasty cocktails along with a great beer and wine selection.

Awesome place. All cuts lamb and beef from New Zealand means Halal. Love the quality and service. Lamb can be made medium and well done. I recommend medium. You can try both. Seafood is also great. We love the place.

Nice selection of food. Great variety of meats and healthy options. They have nice outdoor seating. Love the homemade sauce that pair well with the fries. Definitely recommend going during lunch. It can get a bit crowded in evening
