I was traveling for work and a colleague and I stopped in for a burger after work. We walked right in, and were immediately seated in a spacious booth. We each ordered a beer, and studied the burger menu. There are some really great burger concoctions on the menu. I ended up having a mushroom and swiss burger with the... More

Hey, Joe! Appreciate the recommendation after you loved your Mushroom & Swiss. I know you guys were here for business, so the least you can do is find some good food in the cities you're visiting, right? Thanks for landing on us! Safe travels, Mike More

Everything I have tried at this restaurant is very good! The Godfather sauce is tasty and the burgers are delicious! The only negative about this restaurant is that it is small and can get quite noisy at peak times! At these times, it is not pleasant to try to have a conversation at your table. That being said, I still... More

Always wonderful to hear from a regular, Lexie! Thanks for the shout out to the burgers and the Godfather sauce. I know it can get a little loud when we're packed, so definitely feel free to give us a call if you want to know how busy we are before you head over. See you next time! Cheers, Mike More

I brought my girlfriend here on or first date. Failing to remember that she is a vegetarian (!) however this was no problem as the veggie burger at the Godfathers was so good she ended up forgiving me for this mistake. I had a regular meat burger and it was fantastic! Been here a couple of times and I always... More

we have eaten there quite often ant overall the food is good, the service efficient and the place is always busy, the manager keeps a close eye on things, so you are always well catered for.

I come here off and on and every time I am simply blown away with how good the food is. The grass fed beef patties are so juicy and taste amazing. Godfathers is just the best burger place I have ever been too. Grass fed beef isn't cheap either, but their prices are still great! Owner is nice and the... More

My wife and I eat here regularly and are never disappointed. Sure it’s a burger restaurant with table service. But if you’re salivating for a gourmet burger this is the spot. Yea you can get a good regular burger at Five Guys or In And Out, but neither compares to the quality or the ambiance of the Godfather’s. The two... More

The title says it all. In talking to the owner, it is clear that the reason the burgers here are so good is because of the quality of the beef. The only downside to eating here is that you won't want to have a lesser burger anywhere else because you now notice more fully what good ground beef should taste... More

Went here with a group of 20+ from work. Given the number of people all at one table in a pretty small restaurant they coped admirably. Great selection of burgers, cooked to your liking...which you don't often get the opportunity from where I come from. I settled on a medium rare with cheese and pepperoni. Great taste , burger juices... More

If there could be one word to describe us, it's definitely burgerlicious! Happy to know you and your group loved what we're all about. We're not fancy, just a nice place that makes a great burger. Glad your medium rare with cheese and pepperoni could hit the spot. Hope you come back for more soon! Take care, Mike More
