a good dive

Kind of a dive, more like a bar with tables than a restaurant with a bar, but the burgers are great, the people were friendly, and the draft beer choices are great. Lots of sports on the TVs, good burgers, definitely a place I'll go back to.

By far the best burgers in the area. Can get them protein style (no bun) with all the other stuff makes for a great burger.

Delicious classic burgers, great fries and milkshakes! When you head here, make sure to ask if they have the captain crunch milkshake, totally worth it!

This is the place to take kids. It is a very relaxed atmosphere, and the food is good and not expensive.

Got hooked going to this place for lunch a few times a week. First it was their blue cheese burger and fries, then their basic burger lunch special. This week a huge potato with broccoli and cheese for $3.50! Everything is hot, and yummy and a good value. Start with the burgers then return to explore the rest.

If you like roasted brussel sprouts with your burgers and sweet potato fries, this is a good place. There's soda and a bar, too. And the usual plethora of TVs for every game that's on.

Went there with my brother and his family and it seemed they knew a lot of people there so it seemed like a good local joint. Very crowded but we were seated right away and the service was good. Definitely a sports bar with great burgers and fries and a good selection of beer.

Great food for a reasonable price. Definitely a local hang-out. Had a great vibe for a sports pub/bar.

This is an overly lit box, and usually the music is up too loud. They make their burgers really on the rare side here, but you can get a decent honest burger and fries. The beer selection is not terribly wide but has a few well selected west coast taps - and the wine list is OK too. Competition is... More

Sometimes you just want a good ole burger...The Patty Shack has it. Great selection of burgers, sandwiches, salads, sides. Good quality meat, choice of three bun types. Always a couple of specials. Love the patty melt and the chili fries are to die for. Best Mac and cheese I've ever had. Place to watch a game or two, have a... More
