sure, the philly cheese steak burger is messy, but so what - the treat to your taste buds is worth it! (unless you're on a first date and don't want to appear to be a slob... LOL). Just sit yourself down with plenty of napkins and dig in! The ground rib eye is soooo scrumptious! And once... read more

If a burger's not a little messy, we don't want anything to do with it! Glad you're a fan of the place and not afraid to take advantage of the napkins. Thanks for coming by and seeing us whenever you're in town! Cheers, Mike More

Read good reviews here, so thought I would visit while in the area. Parking was pretty much non-existant. Small place with interesting decor. Owner met as soon as entered and was seated right away. While I was seated quickly took 5 to 10 minutes before waitress took my order. I had read review of previous customer having soggy bun so... More

Hey, Cliff! Thanks for stopping by while you were in the area. Sorry your burger's bun got a little soggy -- we want the patties to be moist, but trying to eat a soggy burger's no fun at all. If you make it back, we'll do our best to get your order taken a little quicker and serve up an... More

The atmosphere is laid back and you don't feel rushed while eating your food. The food is excellent I had the goodfellas pepperoni burger and it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. The staff is attentive and my cup was never empty. I would definitely recommend this place.

Another of my favorite places when visiting the peninsula. I stumbled upon this place by accident and go back whenever I can. They have delicious, high grade burgers. The best I've ever had. This is an independently owned burger place which looks kind of suspicious from the outside. But walk in through the curtain and you find a delightful little... More

Pretty cool that you randomly finding us one day turned into being a regular, Vickie! Proud to hear that we make your favorite burgers ever. Thanks for giving folks who haven't joined us yet an idea of how we do things around here, by the way. See you next time you're on the peninsula! Until then, Mike More

I did a take out, one time, based on many high ratings of the place. I was not impressed: the burger is huge, and the ingredients are fine, but the bread gets soaked really fast and that's one thing is a burger I don't like. I was struck by the interior of the place: it was full (great!) but it... More

Sorry if your bun got soggy -- that's not appetizing! I'm guessing it was because you got your burger rare or medium rare, so we can definitely cook it a little longer next time if you'd prefer. Hope to have you dine in with us if you make it back! The place isn't huge, but I promise you there's plenty... More

dark little hole, black walls. needs a gay interior decorator to help make the place look like a destination. Grease spilled all over the sidewalk on the steep side by the kitchen, be careful walking so you don't slip and fall. food O.k., but over-rated. staff very nice, owner needs a blimp hanger to house his ego.

Sorry to hear you haven't enjoyed the place as much as others. While we value all the feedback we can get, I have to say we found parts of your review somewhat offensive. It would be very much appreciated if you edited it to be relevant only to the food, service, and ambiance. Thanks, Mike More

This is the place to go for a burger, several varieties to choose from & sweet potato fries as well as great onion rings. The portion size is large & I always leave too full because I can't stop eating! I highly recommend this place if you love a great burger.

Stopped in for lunch and the lounge is as advertised, burgers & fries, not much else. Nice variety & selections of burgers to choose from. We had the Untouchables burger w/ onion rings and the Guacamole burger w/ sweet potato fries. Both burgers were cooked perfect and the Untouchables had some great spice to it. Onion rings were nice, could... More
