The Place for Burgers

As the name implies, this restaurant makes a very good burger at a reasonable price. Menu has a handful of other choices, but if beef isn't your thing, this probably isn't the place for you. Service was friendly and efficient, burgers were delicious, fries were good but nothing special.

Very poor quality burgers, dry, with hard buns. I had asked for some sauce and ketchup for the fries and was rally surprised when the waitress added a $1 for the chipotle mayonnaise that she had brought for the fries. Would not recommend this place

Second time here, nice jazz music in the background, low enough to carry on a nice conversation with friends. Now to the burgers, awesome house specials, but build your own is awesome as well. Nancy is a very gracious and attentive host.

...this place has many offerings including the portobello mushroom burger--a very yummy vegetarian choice. There are a few soups, salads, fries etc. to accompany your burger. Although there are some steaks and sandwich wraps on the menu, if you (or someone in your group) don't want a burger, this might not be the place to go. Check out the menu... More

Had the best gourmet burger last night. Totally recommend the bacon and avocado burger. The server knew the menu, provided top notch service and was very pleasant to deal with. Simple but plentiful uncomplicated menu. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Looked up places to eat before a business trip to Stratford. After reading things about this place I had to try. It was nice but nothing special, especially for the price.

While I hear the burgers are good (two other restos locally have better), the offerings for non-burger folk are limited. So perhaps my review shouldn't count, but I think nowadays, non-burger offerings should not be that challenging.

From the friendly greeting to the excellent food to the great music (at just the right volume and "mood"), this is one terrific place for lunch or dinner. The burgers are substantial and the special is always interesting and inviting (and changing). It is well worth repeat visits! Enjoy.

The burgers at this restaurant are to die for. I normally can not eat a whole burger in a restaurant but the buns on these burgers are so light that I do not have a problem. I like the fact that the offering is different depending on the season. For example they had a special burger for the holiday season.... More

Truly the best burger I've ever had in my life! \My wife said the same thing about her burger too! The meat was tender and juicy though well-cooked. I had the Love Goat Burger with goat cheese and peppercorn crusted burger and it was awesome! The bun was soft and lightly toasted. A nice touch! The onion rings were huge... More
