I heard soooo much about this place, from other websites and people around town. We decided to check it out and boy were we disappointed. The burgers were void of a good beef ta...

Don't Take the Frys 9/15/2010

Food is good; however, the friendliness of the staff is less than desirable unless you are a ""regular"" who they tend to cader too....\r \r Also, don't take the frys of the counter unless they tell you to, if you do, you will probably be informed ""not to do it again"".\r \r Bates Hamburgers LOST two customers today due to their lack of tact, respect and over abundance of rudeness! more

Great Hamburgers 10/24/2009

Handmade burgers cooked in onions, steamed buns, great flavor, good price. Pros: The best ""Sliders"" around Cons: Not many locations left more

GREAT FOOD 4/5/2009

A warm and friendly setting you can sit and relax, and look at the cars go by. AND think of the good old days when times was better. It is the first place i think of when i want a memory of the south!!!!! Pros: BEST BURGERS AND FRIES!!!!!! more

Can't beat the burgers! 1/8/2008

Bates is legendary in Livonia. If you haven't been there, you must try it. The burgers, while a bit greasy are extremely tasty. Try the crinkled fries and a shake with your burgers as well. Bates used to be open much later back in the day. They close earlier these days so check the hours prior to making the trek. more

One of the last ""porcelain palaces"" around 11/8/2006

Oh yes! This place has stuck with the basics! I absolutely love the old ""porcelain palaces"". Everytime I am in the neighborhood I stop by for three with everything, a coke, and an order of fries well done.\r The one MAJOR problem with this place is they have no public restroom! I think that is even against Michigan law! Pros: The ambience is perfect for a ""Porcelain Palace"", I love it! Cons: No public restroom! ***No porcelain pony in this porcelain palace!*** Yikes! more

Very Underrated!!! 10/22/2006

I don't know what ""Very Overrated is talking about below (probably just a complainer)...Bates is one of the last bastions of real take out hamburgers left in the area!!! Crisp crinkle fries, fountain soda, REAL milk shakes and hamburgers that make the so-called sliders kings run in fear! This place is a Livonia landmark that should be revered. Pros: Best sliders in the area! Cons: Hard to park...no arguement there. more

WHAT CAN I SAY-A LIVONIA LANDMARK THATS BURGERS NEVER CHANGED 9/12/2006

I am 49 years old and have lived in Livonia all my life. I must admit I don't go to Bates\r real often, but I would have to say I visit it at least once a month when I get this\r incredible craving for it. The burgers are greasy, but that is the reason they taste so\r fantastic !!! Try their fries extra crispy!!!! I've never had better. Pros: great food, great prices, fast service Cons: parking more

Very best at bates 7/12/2006

we had good friends (Canadian) they come my place before go bowling we chat and got little hungery. I did order and then we ate and they loved it and told me they are good likes the bates better more

Very Over rated!!! 6/3/2006

I heard soooo much about this place, from other websites and people around town. We decided to check it out and boy were we disappointed. The burgers were void of a good beef taste they were loaded with fat and gristle and tasted of grease and old onions. I ended up putting a ton of salt on them in efforts to improve the taste. I waited a few months thinking maybe they were just having a bad day. When I went back to try again I was just as disappointed. Its not worth the trip, even if you live across the street. Pros: Cheap, quick, friendly Cons: tasteless, fatty, parking tight more

amazing 7/21/2005

bates' burgers are by far the best. my dad grew up in livonia and my grandma still lives there. when ever we're on the east side i always ask to get bates. it great to go there, because the food is so good, the place is so quaint, and my dad always has stories to tell about bates from when he was growing up, and it was open 24/7. its an experience in its own. more

best Sliders in the world 5/13/2005

title says it all the best that money can buy more

Mmm... Good 8/7/2002

I've been going here for years just for the burgers. Finally I tried the breakfast and who would of guessed.... its just as tasty as a good ol' white wrapper bates burger Pros: Tasty, inexpensive, Close to Home Cons: Parking, Toast soft (Pkg.) more

Bates Attack 7/24/2002

Went to Ladywood HS, just around the corner from Bates...we used to hit Bates all during the school day....after graduation used to hit it at all hours of the night. Sadly, it is not open 24/7 but, when my daughter (now 18) was very little, I introduced her to Bates and ever since then, she knows the best way to get my attention by saying, ""mom, I'm having a Bates attack -- can we go?"" and we are out the door!! Best burgers ever! more
