Fresh made burgers with fun toppings

When we want a delicious, fresh burger we go here. There are so many options for toppings and I can get a turkey burger. I especially like the Olive You Burger....salty goodness. The onion rings are some of the best we've had and the fried pickles are also very delicious. And if you're not in the... read more

Great choice of burgers and toppings, fries and onion rings, shakes. Vegetarian burger available, though we go for the classics. Really delicious. Quick service.

Always a go to place when we have visitors in from out of town. Huge array of burgers, great fries and shakes...and beer. The owner Chris is always friendly and appreciative of your business.

Near the train in the heart of downtown LaGrange they serve really fresh burgers with all sorts of fun add-ons, great desserts, an array of beverages all in a post-modern diner served by a friendly staff. Really kid friendly.

Some really interesting burgers from classic to olive burgers. The fries are excellent, both regular and sweet potato.

This is a great place to grab a burger if you're in the La Grange area. I love the option of creating your own burger the way you want it. With that I created the perfect burger for myself, and my spouse did the same! If you are not really feeling a burger at the time they do offer great... More

This is our local go-to burger place. Delicious burgers and fries, fast and friendly service and fun atmosphere. And the bonus: a very good selection of craft beers to wash it all down with. Keep up the good work - love the new and more spacious location.

Go to Back Alley Burger if you want a good grass-fed beef burger. There are many to choose from. I have yet to try a burger I didn't like.

Burgers are fantastic, and the salads are good too. Kids love the shakes! Wish there were more parking- in good weather its fine, but sometimes hard to get a spot
