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

I give a lot of credit to places for originality. The decor isn't much different that a lot of other places these days but the burger menu was unique. Glazed donut bun or french toast, egg and maple syrup on your burger; there are some interesting choices. I didn't care much for the tator tot nachos, they were OK, I... More

It's a little off the beaten path if you're just visiting and are staying at a hotel on the edge of town, but Oddfellows is worth the trip and will be a nice oasis compared to the corporate restaurant madness on South Duff. Yes, it's in a strip mall, but don't let that deter you (Geangelos next door has the... More

My son, his wife, 2-month old daughter and I stopped in here @ about 2pm on Sunday after shopping. The menu was not too extensive, which I like and the food was great. Simple cheeseburger and fries ...served simply on a home made bun. Perfect. If you like your burger with 'no pink' let them know beforehand. They're thick and... More

Let me start this by saying I have a unique way to measure food establishments. I call it the taste to cost ratio. The burgers were strange and entertaining, the food was all right, but the prices are RIDICULOUS. $12 dollars for a burger with some cheap queso, canned jalepenos, and a fried egg on top? And the burger was... More
