Delicious food !!

Had the chicken burger it was very tasty. Side salad nice and fresh with a great dressing. Dessert was yummy especially shared with a friend. Pleasant hostess and clean atmosphere. I'll be back to experience more tasty dishes.

This is one of my go to spots in town. Always have a great meal and a great time with friends. Burgers are awesome and the pizza is good. Soups are always different everytime I go and I've never had one I did not like.

The burgers here are certainly a highlight, but don't be shy to try their pizza - it does not disappoint! The mini tuna tacos (wrapped in a lentil cracker almost like a poppadum) were a great starter! My wild mushroom burger was truly excellent, with a great mushroom flavor. My wife had the tandoori chicken pizza and loved every slice.... More

Lots of unique combinations and all the ones I've had have been really good! I'd stay away from the potato side and choose salad as it brought nothing to the party. Good selection of beer and cocktails, staff have always been friendly and fun.

We bought a deal through groupon, glad we did pay full price. Our first exposure was not great ... we were not very impressed about the decor, more like a kids burger bar, the waitress first said the booths weren't open, we asked the second waitress why not, I guess the few booths in the place were reserved, although they...

The food is so good. I had the little tuna tacos and then shared a pizza with my husband. Both were delicious, the service was great. I will be going back.

Amazing, wacky looking food. Taking ordinary food and adds an interesting twist to the food. So good food it was featured in "You gotta eat here"

Aside from the mad chef burger, the rest of our food was terrible. The service was atrocious. We will never be back. The overall experience was very unwelcoming and disappointing.
