There are several kinds of burgers, including mushroom Swiss, bacon bleu, creole (with grilled andouille sausage, peppers, and onions), and smokehouse BBQ (with applewood bacon and barbeque sauce). At $8.99, they should be substantial, and they are; the burgers are huge and they come with lots of fries.
Also on the menu: several types of sandwiches (grilled chicken, salmon burger, falafel, for example), as well as salads, chili, a rotating selection of soups, hotdogs, wings, chili cheese fries, and onion rings. The most expensive item, the Lucky Seven steak sandwich for $9.99, features marinated filet mignon. There’s also a kids menu with burgers, hotdogs, or chicken tenders for $4.99.
The burgers are made from premium cuts of certified angus beef and are cooked on a wood-burning stove using hickory and oak wood, says Greg Henry, a restaurant consultant with Sysco Baltimore, who has been advising the owner, Saeid Sanei. The chili, soups, salad dressings, and other items are all made in-house.
Dice Burger also has something else a bit unusual—a couple of dice at the cashier. Anyone who rolls a double six gets a free meal.

Sanaei is planning a grand opening celebration for Valentine’s Day. Meanwhile, Dice Burger is open seven days a week, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. He has applied for an alcohol license and hopes to start offering beer and wine this spring. Early plans to include a hookah bar have been put on hold. Sanei now says he’s not sure whether that is going to happen or not.
