BUTCHER BURGER - BETHEL

MADE WITH LOVE

Butcher Burger was established in the spring of 2014, specializing in unique burgers, sandwiches, lobster rolls and fries. Since then, Butcher Burger has expanded into the Western Mountains of Maine and most recently, Portland, ME.

We pride ourselves in supporting local breweries and we are pleased to serve you the very best of what the Maine beer scene has to offer. We prepare all of our food in-house from scratch, using fresh ingredients.

Our lobster is locally sourced from lobster boats along the coast of Maine where it is then steamed and hand-picked in house.

All food waste and organic materials at Butcher Burger are composted and donated locally.

“Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”

Ah-maz-ing!! After hearing rave reviews from friends, we finally got a chance to eat here. Wow! If you're a meat lover, this place is a must. Creative menu of smash burgers, fries made with Maine potatoes, plus great selection of local craft beers.My husband and I both had the Hawaiian Burger with 1 lb of sea salt french fries. So good!! The service was fantastic, super personable - the chef even came out to the dining room to chat when the rush slowed down (His favorite burger was the Bacon Bacon which we'll try next time!) They also had fish tacos, falafels, chicken tenders, and lots of other great menu items.Highly recommend eating here if you're visiting Bethel!!

Delicious food perfect after a full day of hitting the slopes. The beer selection was large and had many Maine brews on tap, in cans, and in bottles. They also had a full bar and hard seltzers.They have a falafel burger for those who want a meat-free option. The burgers are delicious they have a unique selection of toppings or combinations. The fries were fresh and crunchy. The sauces were full of flavor.The only reason I didn’t give this five stars was the service on the day we went was less than optimal. There was not many people there and we seemed to be waiting a long time for someone to come out. The drinks were served to us efficiently, and the food time was adequate for freshly cooked burgers. The other reason I gave this establishment 4 stars was that I was charged for a different sauce (bbq rather than the mayo-based sauce) and that cost me a dollar. No big deal but the amount I got for a dollar was not even a full condiment cup. I think $0.50 would have been more reasonable or more sauce for the dollar price tag.

We've only ever had the Bacon Bacon burger, but it's very good. Took my mom there who was disappointed to find out they were smash burgers, but she thought it was delicious. Their sauces are great. The only downside is they're expensive, price on the burgers is like $15 for just the burger. The place is small, not a good place for large parties.

Our lunch was good very expensive, I didn't like that you don't get fries with your burger, if you want fries it's another $4 putting a basic cheeseburger and fries at $18. The burger was good just disappointed with the fry situation.

We moved close to the ME border recently. Out and about, we stumbled across this little gem. Everyone got burgers of some sort and we all shared the fish tacos to start. No complaints from anyone. The service was wonderful and the food was fantastic! The owner/chef? came out to say hi to the customers and was friendly and enthusiastic about his spot. We love supporting local businesses and are already looking forward to the our next trip back! Definitely worth the visit.

We had never even heard of this company, but we decided to look up local eats as we were driving through Bethel. Every single thing we ate here was amazing and full of flavor. Appetizer was these deep fried macaroni blocks with a spicy ranch dipping sauce, which I was surprised by how much there was.We ordered the salt and vinegar french fries, which was the smaller size, and still a good portion size. I ordered the Texas burger, and she ordered the Hawaiian burger. Everything had so much flavor. I can say I now have a new favorite place to get a burger.
