I was very prepared for my trip to the Indiana Dunes. This restaurant was our first pick because if the high reviews. We walked in with our 15 month old and 4 year old. We were given the last open table Monday night. When we got to the table we asked for a high chair. The server shrugged his shoulders... More

My husband and I found this adorable little burger place and decided to give it a try for date night. We started off with the hummus which was delicious. I then got a burger with gouda cheese, BBQ sauce, and guacamole while my husband got a spicy burger with onion rings. Now I am pretty picky when it comes to... More

Our 2 visits have good ones. My veggie wife has been given excellent veggie food and my choices have been excellent. Only downside has been strong bleach odor while we ordered(not good)

Love the taste of the burgers! The beef comes from grass feed animals and it makes a difference! Although the place is small and doesn't seat many, it's worth the wait!

They have a great selection of unusual burgers. It was very tasty. If you don't want any pink in your burger I would ask for it well done as even well done there was a little pink to the meat. There are a very limited number of tables so be prepared for a 30 to 45 minute wait. Service was... More

VERY small place. We originally tried it because we saw a lecture on grass fed beef from Bill Kurtis. It made a lot of sense, and we tried it. VERY small place, but the burgers are creative and very good and they offer craft beers. I would have to say a very unusual menu as you may not have seen... More
