We dined here for the first time and we were very satisfied! The place is small but big on flavor and the staff were great too! It was featured on Diner's , Drive-In's and Dives so we just had to try it. We shared an order of mozzarella sticks and they were very tasty. I found the marinara sauce to... More

Best burger - ever. The place is small but delivers big flavors and perfectly cooked burgers. The place is in the center of the town and the staff is great. Only complaint is the homemade potato chips aren't very good. They were over cooked until they were hard like shingles. But overall it is worth the try.

This burger joint was featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives with Guy Fieri so we had to try it. We got there around 3 pm on a Saturday and was told it was a 45 minute wait to be seated. We waited at a table outside. We were called within 20 - 30 minutes. We were seated at a table... More

Was there together with a friend, had the "Hot Mess" burger and was delighted. Though, we had to wait 45 minutes to get a spot but the burger is totally worth it. It was cooked to the point, I like it medium. Just pink in the middle. Not too much sauce and stuff so that the beaf taste comes through.... More

Very Good Burgers, creative combinations, and build your own combinations. We stopped for lunch at this small & busy burger joint. Every table was occupied, but it was not noisy. We had very good and reasonably fast service. We sat near the open kitchen and all the smells made us even hungrier. They have a nice selection of craft beers... More

Hands down, one of the best burgers I've had at a restaurant. I always say that I can make a better burger at home than a restaurant can but this place would certainly give me some competition. Amazing choice of toppings prepared just right coupled with a properly cooked burger patty...add your choice of craft beer and tasty app (if... More

I thought, the food was delicious and plenty. Service was prompt and courteous and the prices were very reasonable ($10-$15 average/burger). Tables are a little tight, but it's not too bad.

Holy cow! I first saw this place on Phantom Gourmet. Then I went online and checked out their menu. That's when I knew I HAD to try this place. I'm so glad I did. Expect a little wait to get a table. But well worth the wait. Burgers were HUGE!! The menu was amazing. Everything looked so good, it was... More
