Great eat

We just chanced upon this. Gray little find. Had the 1/3 pounder chipotle burger. Very tasty. Slightly on the pricey side. Would go back for just the burger.

The food was ok, but nothing special that would make come back again. French fries seemed to use old oil to fry and the taste was not good.

I've been coming here all my life and I always get the cheese burger basket and it's the best no thrills cheese burger. Whatever they use for their sauce is really good.

The food tasted ok, they had chicken strips, which were very smal about 1/2 the normal strip and the were $1.00 a piece. We ordered 13 strips(we have kids;) asked for dipping sauce and it's an extra .25 per cup....seriously? I just paid 13.00 for strips that are not normal size. My husband said the burgers were good. Nothing special.

Burgers and sandwiches. There is no better burger in the 831. Solid salads, great milk shakes and a friendly no attitude staff.

From the reviews I read I thought these burgers would be amazing but they were just ok. There's almost no room to sit down and if it's even close to busy you might have to pay to park down the street.

I didn't have a burger, but I tried the chicken sandwich and it was very tasty! I've heard the burgers and really good, I'm looking forward to coming back soon and trying one.

A good place to visit. Doesn't look like much, but they are known for their burgers. If you go on a Wednesday...it is right across from the farmers market, so, can visit that also.
