Hard to pick between my two favorite burgers here - the prime rib burger and Jon's burger. Both come on a pretzel bun and both are delicious. If you're here for lunch during the week, the lunch buffet is hard to beat. Even when it's busy, the staff takes good care of you. Be sure to get the potato salad... More
