Title says it all. They offer tons of choices to customize the burgers, but each option costs a bit more.

This belongs in New York with these prices. Better burgers elsewhere. Salty and sloppy.

I had the Wild Truffle Burger ($10) and "Gourmet Crispy Onion Rings." The onion rings were fine (hot and crispy), but nothing extra special. I couldn't taste the Leinenkugels in their beer batter. On the other hand, the burger was juicy, flavorful, and served on a delicious brioche bun. There is nothing in the way of ambiance here (including boxes... More

Best burger I have had out to eat in a very, very long time. Their food is cooked fresh to order, even the fries. We had sweet potato fries and the small was more than plenty for the 2 of us to share. They claim to serve only organic foods, and by the freshness of it all, I am sure... More

I was worried this place would not last because the prices are a little high, the service was just ok, and the location is not optimal. A few decent restaurants have come and gone at this location because it is small and not in the Fox River Mall. But the burgers are some of the best I have ever had... More

Wow! Scrumptious! (Dare I say salacious?) I indulged on the "Wild Truffle" 6oz steak burger prepared with roasted Crimini mushrooms, caramelized onions, black truffle sea salt, smoked provolone and an organic sunny-side up egg and kept in place by a brioche hamburger bun. Had a small order of sweet potato French fries and iced tea. The bill was $15.49 -... More
