Walk in order from the bar burgers are cooked as you wait and the way you ask, no fries available and coleslaw very average but the burger is worth the visit. Nothing fancy!

The debate goes back and forth over whether Duffy's or Skinny's has the best burgers on the island. Heck, try them both! Both serve similar fare, although Duffy's has the tradition, but at Skinny's you can keep your feet in the sand. The drawback to Duffy's is that it is cash only and they do not serve fries, a non...

Went to Duffys in an evening of fun stops around the area. Great burgers as well as pulled pork. Outside seating was available, but a bit chilly. Fun place to meet up with friends.

We enjoyed the juicy hamburgers and ice cold beer. Burgers are very tasty! Homemade cole slaw & potato salad or special of the day, collard greens! Place your order at the counter and they serve you when cooked. Thinking this place could be very fun come St Paddy's day

Small menu, tasty burgers. The bar/restaurant is small and not much atmosphere. But we got our burgers to go and enjoyed a $1 budweiser as we waited for our order.

The service here has always been kind of lackluster, but the burgers (which they claim were oncevoted the best on AMI) have really gone downhill. Years ago, they were fresh and juicy, but for the last two years they seem like they might be frozen and were not very tasty.

Atmosphere and food great! Service was wonderful! The only thing that could be improved is refills on drinks!

Local dive burger joint. Garage doors for windows so more or less open air environment. Nice variety of burgers (veggie burger too). Price was ok for the area. No fries. Burgers were good, not great. No table service so you have to order at the bar. Soda served in cans.
