I went with a friend yesterday, him being a veteran to the place and me going for the first time! I REALLY enjoyed myself! We were greeted right away by a host who was sweeping and keeping the place tidy (something I seriously respect). He was incredibly friendly and seated us right away. Our server came out moments later and... More

Really liked the interior - rustic in appearance. Service was given with a smile and very efficient. Food was good and filling. Would suggest this for families and for those who do like a 'drop in' type of atmosphere. I would go back again.

There are many creative burgers to choose from or you could make your own! The sides range from deep-fried treats to... More

The most difficult decision at the works is deciding which burger to get. There are so many options for your taste buds. From avocado to peanut butter or even an egg you'll find it on the burgers here. The service is just as good as the burgers as well. A hidden gem is the milkshakes. I personally love the chocolate...

Biggest variety of burgers ever!!! (and you can substitute beef burger for chicken breast or turkey burger and others) Everything we ordered was great! Service was fast and friendly and with so many decisions to make that we'll have to come back to try more!

Slow and unfriendly service. Burger was raw, so I only ate pickles. Not allowed take out as their sale was dine in only. Worst lunch I have ever had and will never return!
