Came here with our large family group. Do not come here if you want "Healthy, diet-friendly food!" The burgers are very unique and many different choices. The portions are very generous. The fries are good, the onion rings are tasty. It's fun to see what everybody orders!

This is a very good restaurant, their specialty is excellent hamburgers. They have excellent variety of hamburgers and they are cooked very well. Their prices are also very good for a burger.

We enjoyed our visit to the restaurant after a Cyclones football game. There are many unique combinations for burger choices. My family enjoyed all of the ones we selected. The good was delicious and hot. The service was pretty slow and it was only about half filled. I found the pricing was on the high side. We would definitely come... More

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!!!
