Our 31st Review
Official Review #31

222 Market St, Maysville, Kentucky 41056


UPDATE!  We returned Saturday August 3rd 2019 for the 1st time in 4 years to see if they still had the same awesome burger, and the answer was YES!

3 very nice ladies were working that night, and the cooks suggested the Mushroom swiss burger, but I ordered a more classic one with lettuck tomato and mayo, it was excellent, but I wanted more, so I took her suggestion and got the Mushroom swiss, it was even better, just an awesome burger, and thank you for the 3 very nice ladies working that night and for the suggestion, it has retained it's #3 spot on our list.

Definitely get to Maysville, Kentucky and try this place out, usually they close by 4pm most days, but give them a call if your going, they happen to be open until 8pm on this Saturday night trip. 

This was our first visit to Delites, which is just down the street from Margies Southern Cafe, which we have visited many times & reviewed previously, it's located in Old Downtown Maysville.

Upon entering this Cafe, I noticed several awards in the front window for them having the Best Burgers around.

We ordered 2 Hamburgers: $4.50 w/Lettuce, Tomato & Onion, they were served on a Brioche Bun, here is a detailed description of this bun, as I've never had one before, it's a, pastry of French origin that is akin to a highly enriched bread, and whose high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb. It is "light and slightly puffy, more or less fine, according to the proportion of butter and eggs"[1] It has a dark, golden, and flaky crust, frequently accentuated by an egg wash applied after proofing, hope that helps.

Anyway, the Burger was pretty Big, & worth the price, the Burger was excellent, the Bun, even Better, LOL, the Bun helps it, get a half star better rating, the lettuce & Tomato & onion, were fresh & very good.

I the grill is located right by the Front window & the cook is right behind the counter & can look out onto Market Street & you see in & watch him cook from the sidewalk.

So I got to talk to the Cook & watch him make the Burgers, it was definitely Hand-made Fresh & it tasted like it, there were 3 of us on this trip & although we got them to go, we dug in right away, as soon as we got going, the Cook was extremely nice to talk to, I asked him several questions about the Burgers & the place, & the owners of Delites, also owns the Bar next door, the waitress, was also very nice, while we waited.

It looks like a nice clean, friendly place to eat, with good people running it.

Final Thoughts: I will make this whole review, short, quick & easy, This was a Unanimous Vote, this is one of the Very Best Burgers we have ever had anywhere, & Definitely the Best Bun, I wish every Burger, we've ever tried anywhere, had this Brioche Bun, I surely will look for this Bun for my own Burgers at home.
Top 10, Yes, Top 5, for sure, Depending on your own Personal Preferences, our's included, this just about the Best Burger, you could find anywhere, from Cincinnati to Maysville, & there are a ton of great Burgers in there, But this one ties for the #2 Spot on our list, just Barely Behind Gabby's In Cincinnati, & even though it's rated a 9.0 Star, same as Zola's in Covington, I give it a slight edge, due to the Bun, over Zola's, so lets say a 9.1, LOL.

Final Rating:  9.1* (Exceptional-Must Try it)

Next Tasty Review:  Hutchinson's Grocery, Located also in Old Maysville, Kentucky.

The Big one here, is called the Zeus, I may try it out, on my next trip, LOL.


  1. The market street burger is by far my favorite here it has bbq sauce and an onion ring on it. If you havnt had a bacon double classic burger from Dairy yum yum in nearby Aberdeen ohio you are missing out. you should definitely check it out

    1. We did try the new Location finally of Dairy yum yum, this past summer, I have to get that review posted, but was not impressed at all with their burgers, not very high on the list, they don't compare to Delites for sure.

  2. Forgot to mention that Town and country lanes. the bowling alley in Aberdeen have the best mini burgers I have ever had. they are made with fresh hamburger and the buns are perfect. lunch time you can get 3 tiny burgers fries and a drink for 5 dollars.

  3. Thanks for the Info, we've been to the Bowling Alley, & I wanted to try them out, but did not have the chance, but will definitely do so, soon, & will look for the Dairy Bar this spring, have you tried out, Hutchison's Grocery, not far from Delites, they have awesome burgers, & also excellent Sliders, I rated them & Delites even, but gave the better tasting meat to Hutchisons but Delites Bun evened up the score, but both are awesome Burgers, thanks again for the tips, & you should see the reviews on those 2 places in the coming months, will try the Bowling alley maybe by months end if we can.

  4. We tried out the Bowling lanes for that SLider Burger special you recommended, they were awesome, going back sometime to try other things & their Full Sized burger, will get to Yum, Yum in a couple weeks or so, I think they have moved.

    1. We tried their regular burger and it was nowhere near as good as their sliders.

  5. Best Brioche bun around, great burger.


be respectful and courteous to all, on this blog, no foul language or needless bashing, ect.
