The Local Burger Spot

Often very crowded at lunch time with the professional work force, the decorum is no-frills, the ambiance is lively, and the food is D-lish! A highly re-visited local favorite.

I came here with my friends because it was close to a movie theatre we were at. The wait staff were very friendly and the wait time was not long. But the food was only average. I ordered the Swiss Bacon burger. It was not bad, but not particularly memorable in any way. The outdoor patio was nice to sit... More

Went to St. Johns with some coworkers for beer and dinner. Great selection of burgers and different styles of cheesesteaks. Food was tasty as well as the beer. The place gets pretty busy, so I think they'd be able to clean up the place. The tables and chairs looked 20 years old and the carpet was almost black in places.... More

Get your daily quota of grease here. Burgers and cheesesteaks. Only a few barstools, which was disappointing. Lot's of TVs. Didn't expect to have only counter service. Line got very long, fortunately after we ordered.

This is a so-so dining spot. Not great but not disgusting as well. Probably is over priced for its just average food.

I've been coming here for 30 years and if there is one thing I can always count on is a tasty cheesesteak. Having moved to Oregon, I don't get to eat here as often but I am always looking for an excuse to come back. They serve good beer, for burgers, salads, onion rings, fries, and recently slow cooked pulled... More

This place looks from the outside like a typical pub, but as soon as you enter, you notice a long line leading to a counter. You put your order in and are given a "buzzer" which will let you know when the food is ready. They have MANY kinds of cheesesteaks and all can be made with chicken as well.... More

Yummy burgers with fun flavors, awesome garlic/cheese fries and each day there's a special deal like 50% burger happy hour. Great casual atmosphere too!

Been here many many times and have always had a great burger. Every day they have a late afternoon/early evening special that cannot be beat. There fries and burgers make a very filling meal for 1 or light meal for 2.
