Good Burger, a lot of selection

I liked the fact they had a lot of different burgers to pick from. It was also nice they had some brews from the area to pick from. The restaurant had that college town look and feel to it. Overvall it was fun, good, and great atmosphere. I would go again.

Interesting place with great burgers. There is a wide variety of burgers and brews in the small campus restaurants. There is entertainment on the week ends. Don't miss out on the bison burger!

I just made it simple with a bacon cheeseburger and chips. The burger was absolutely delicious, one of the best I've had. The joint is small and has lots of local flare to it. I will be going back.

Although a little pricey, the 'real' food received is worth it. Each of the sandwiches we have tried has been great. The fresh potato chips are crisp and tasty. The servers are all efficient, friendly and helpful. The man who delivered our meal even gave suggestions for sauce combinations for each item. We have eaten there twice and wouldn't hesitate...

An hour after the order was placed I received a call that the one of the items was unavailable, and I was asked if I wanted to replace it with something else. I said I'd just like my money back for the item. They informed me that would be too difficult, and instead I would just get fries. 40 minutes... More

We have ordered these amazing burgers a countless number of times, and are always so happy! I always get the single cheeseburger and fries, it's definitely filling for a smaller person. We also tend to order the Blue Ribbon BLT, or The Matty Plummer is also a winner! If you have a few extra bucks to spare, please try the... More

Location is great but store is a little small. The food however is worth the while, great burgers, local ingredients, great fried green beans and most of all Kool-Aid is an option, couldn't be better.

Delicious selection from their brisket, porkchop sandwiches, burgers, and sides. Everything I've eaten here has ever disappointed me. It can get a little pricey, but you will enjoy every bite of your meal. They are vegetarian friendly as well. Just great foods!
