The Cobb Burger was amazing. Such a cute little restaurant, and the endless French fries made it a great deal!

We had a large group, were seated promptly, orders taken quickly and food delivered after a very short wait. The food was great - Ruby burgers, super burgers, veggie burgers, kids meals, fries, shakes - all perfect. You can't... More

The burgers were great, staff were respectful and geared toward young kids which is a nice change. Someone came around and did balloon animals for tips and there was a train that circulated around a track inside (also visible outside) that our son absolutely loved. My turkey burger with cranberry was delicious and toddler son was occupied for the entire... More

In addition, we will come back for the food. We sat at the counter and watched the food come out and it looked great. I'd say this could be a must... More
