There have been few times in the fat man’s life that a menu has given him anxiety. The menu had a variety of 12 burgers and I wanted to eat each and every burger. My dream of a great eatery is clean, tasty, reasonably prices, waiters and waitresses (not servers) and where I view each and every dish that comes... More

Best Burgers in Town especially the home made relish and rootbeer bbq sauce - service can be a bit slow at times but we expect that since we come for the food and accept the services provided

Very great service. It seemed to serve more of an older crowd, but it was a nice atmosphere regardless.

Stopped during a weeknight to try out their burgers. I got a burger with bacon and gouda with fries. I ordered a blonde ale and sat at the bar. The food was good and the service was friendly enough, but I wasn't really blown away by anything. While I enjoyed the burger, I honestly would have been just as happy... More

Excellent food with some great menu items but small inside and very noisy. It is always busy so be prepared to wait. They need to add some better desserts.

This is a tough place for me to review! Why? I don't like beer and I'm only casual about burgers. On the other hand, my wife loves both. The burgers come in many types, with meat ground fresh from a local independent market that we know is good. You can also build your own burger. There are numerous kinds of... More

A distance from the heart of Dover but well worth the trip. An early arrival is well justified as the locals are there waiting for their turn. The food covers a wide range of delicacies and is always cooked perfectly. It is somewhat pricey but well worth it.
