R.I.P.- They went the way of so many others that have tried to cash in on the "expensive burger" market in West Hartford Center. We ate there once with the kids and I'm not surprised that they didn't make it. Just another burger joint that charges 11-12.95 for a $7 dollar burger

For four of us to have lunch at this counter service burger joint, it cost $70. That's an expensive burger lunch. Also, the much-touted soda machine (you pick the brand/type of soda and then you get tons of varieties to choose from -- cherry coke, raspberry coke, vanilla coke, blueberry coke, you get the picture) is a big disappointment.
