Service was good and the pricies were,quite reasonable.

It was a regular burger and fry place...nothing special. It wasn't the best place I had while visiting. I would give it a second try

Our server was rude, and the food was average at best. Overpriced burgers in my opinion, and I would not return to this place.

YES, go to this place. You will love their food, their service, their mojitos, very well located; and prices are really good. Try tabasco sauce mixed with ketchup and mustard; with fries. You will love it....
