This place was really good. The burgers really hit the spot and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely try this place again so we can get some of the other unusual burgers. Wanted to try the pasta but the burgers were calling me!

This place really knows burgers! Terrific variety and very high quality. The salads were fresh and excellent also. Bacon and jalapeño pepper deviled eggs were a treat. Decor is kitschy, but the food is the star here.

I came in late on a Monday night and there was just a handful of people in the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I tried the 50/50 which is a burger that is half beef and half bacon. It's very good, but because its half bacon it has to be cooked well done.... It was very good... More

The burgers here were great and with their noise reduction it was a private and friendly experience.

Great place to go for "not your average" food! Our party of five all tried something different and loved all of it as we sampled each others. The Peanut Butter Pasta is a must though!!!

I liked the unique burgers and the eclectic ambience. My family went, and we all found something different that we liked.

Decent food and excellent value. Prices are reasonable and they have a great selection of gourmet burgers. I don't like thet they opened up the seating so now there are not so many booths however I will still go there for the good food at great value.

I've been here a few times - with friends and on dates. With friends, it's a great place. For dates, not so great as it can be noisy and not at all intimate but what do you expect from a burger place. The burgers are great and creative. My burger, once was a little more cooked than I prefer. All... More

I'm not going to put this burger in my top 5, but it does rank in the top 10! Fun atmosphere; kitschy but clean. Had a hard time deciding between the many "odd" burger choices. Landed on a standard bacon cheeseburger, but next time I'm trying the one with peanut butter. Great tater tots rounded out the deliciousness. Clearly not... More
