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

I’ve been dining here for years and am consistently impressed with the quality of food and level of service. Tonight we had Marly as a server and Ray, the chef came out to share his love for his craft with us. That is what what made every dish taste wonderfully, pride in work and good vibes. Hate that it’s in a parking lot - everything else makes it totally worth it!

Perfect for me having several food allergies. They can always accommodate me with no issues. And the food is very good. The oysters are awesome too!

It is very difficult to find grass fed meat and tasty gluten free food. They knocked it out of the park. The burger was juicy and super flavorful and the fries were delicious and gluten free thanks to the dedicated fryer. If you’re in the mood for a quality burger check them out you won’t be disappointed! Also the service was outstanding!

After a quick stop at the grocery store I noticed this burger spot and decided to whip out my phone and place an order. I ordered the Original. It was ok.

Excellent burger that comes with a small but surprisingly refreshing salad, good fries with some excellent sauces, and a good selection of drinks. The stem cider, West Coast burger, and poutine style fries have become a quick favorite.

Pronounced “batch” as in bachelor (in case you thought they may have baroque music playing in the background) this gastropub serves up great burgers with great beers. I tried the lamb burger for a change of pace along with a beer flight. Both were outstanding.

I have dreamt about going back- it was that amazing. PLEASE open one up around Kingsport, TN or even Bristol or Johnson City. You would be a huge hit! We need a great burger place around here. We loved the burgers, fries, salad, and homemade dipping sauce. Please set one up in tri-cities TN. I would even drive an hour. ❤

Great selection of burgers, sandwiches, and drinks. Had the fries with gravy and cheddar as an app. Really good! The Wellington burger was cooked great (Really rare) and flavorful. The blue cheese cut through strong! Wife had the Auckland chicken but with a beef patty. She really enjoyed it. I would only say, the mac and cheese needs more of a cheese sauce, semi dry.

We found this place accidentally. Its a great find. Ate the Deluxe burger and its probably one of the best burgers, i have had in North Carolina. We did take away but still great service.

The food and service here is always excellent - this time we ordered the pulled pork nachos appetizer and they were SO good. Perfect ratio of toppings, perfect blend of flavors, chips were delicious, and I would order this as an entree if I could! I think these are my favorite nachos from anywhere I've ever been. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and requires masks.

Excellent burgers complemented by knowledgeable wait staff. I prefer the North Kent lamb burger but the Southern Gent is terrific as well. Fries are wonderful. Side salad has a nice dressing. Totally recommend.

Googled Halal Burgers in Durham and the first thing shows up is this place. Called the place to confirm they verified that they have Halal Lamb and beef. Went in there with a mate and ordered, NZ Nacho (Beef), East Coast and West Coast Burger (Without Bacon). I must say the food was amazing, one of the best burgers I have had in my life. From Presentation to Service absolutely fantastic. Would Definitely recommend someone who is looking for a Best Burger Joint in Durham. (emphasized on Best)

Recently went to Burger Bach with a friend and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was a lovely women named Allison who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We will definitely be returning!

The food is delicious. Everything is incredibly fresh. The blueberry BBQ sauce (burger Bach special) is really worth trying. They have some of the best veggie burgers I've ever had and their meat burgers are really good too. The service was quick and friendly. I look forward to returning.

The food was excellent. Our waitress was friendly but a bit long winded, basically reciting the menu we had in front of us when we were clearly ready to order. She took a little longer to greet us and bring us our bill than expected with the small volume of guests present at the time. This was the only reason it lost a star. I got the burger with bleu cheese, hp sauce (like A1), and brown gravy. Cooked to perfection and achieved party in the mouth status. I can't remember what it was called. Only thing I did not enjoy was the brown gravy. Thankfully I got it on the side. The french fries were the best I've had at a restaurant. The cilantro dipping sauce was superb. Ambience and decor was classy and funky fresh. Seating areas and bathrooms clean. Since it was our first time there, the manager came over at the end and gave us a card for a complimentary small fry. I will gladly return.

The food here never disappoints! The Auckland chick is the perfect keto burger when lettuce wrapped, and it’s so delicious. I love all of their sides too.

A nice play to enjoy a nice Saturday or Sunday meal. They do have happy hour specials M-F from 3-6pm (See attached photo). We both really enjoyed the oysters and enjoyed a nice Lamb sandwich. The outdoor patio is year round with gas heaters and fans installed.

East Coast and North Lamb were our first burgers. Both were excellent, lots of diversity in the flavors. Side salads were delightful; my favorite of the sauces we got was in fact the salad dressing! Fries were a little floppy but we did get them to go, so that does happen. Overall, excellent burgers. We'll be back again to try some new burgers in the future!

Very very good burgers. I like the pairing of leafy greens with the burger. There's probably a chemical reason behind why greens make the taste of the meat shine more. My buddy and I both ordered the lamb and it was amazing. I will have to go back and try the beef.

As an Aussie (New Zealand is not too far from the mainland!) I can easily tell if fresh high quality ingredients are being used. The burgers at Burger Bach are very fresh and of high quality. A very pleasant experience! Will be coming back for sure.

What a great experience! Happened upon Burger Bach for lunch. Start to finish, one of the best food experiences, ever. Greeted by a smiling host that seated us in Allison's section. She was knowledgeable about the products and menu. As first time dinners with Burger Bach, she helped us make great selections from the vast and delectable choices. The fries and burgers were great, but most striking was the staff. Every person working was smiling and truly seemed to enjoy their jobs, each other and their customers. Well done Burger Bach!

Great place to eat, friendly service, and delicious food. The wellington burger was very good, and the disco fries was also good, although a little pricey. In addition, I did had to salt my own food, which is a plus for those who eat less salty, and I'm definitely not a heavy salt eater. The gluten free bun was delicious, so the do have some gluten free options, although we had to send back my wife's chicken burger because the put on the wrong bun. The gravy on the disco fries is also gluten free, so that's nice for the food sensitive! I'll be happy to come back for more

Tasty burgers. The gluten free bun got pretty crumbly (which so many do) - many GF options. The fries were a little soggy for my taste. The food took a while to arrive despite a pretty small number of people in the restaurant. Overall, pretty good and would definitely go back.

The burger was tasty, very tasty. I am vegetarian who wasn't too sure of the vegetarian option they had but I was stumped to experience such good food. The whole vibe of the restaurant is very nice too. The staff is amazing and respectful. Worth a try!

Stopped by for a quick dinner, first time here. Great atmosphere, music wasn't blasting but nice. The waitress was awesome, really knew the food and drinks she was serving and made quite a few VERY well placed suggestions. And the food was awesome ,would defiantly recommend stopping off and trying, I will be back.
