One of the best burgers I've ever had. Try the rodeo burger! Only thing stopping me from giving it five stars was the slow service.

Didn't dissapoint! Food was great ..a small atmosphere but fun! The odd thing was that they were open for breakfast and online it said they start serving lunch at 1100..but when we arrived the sign said they were closed till noon..Oh we'll even though we were starving we kept ourselves busy till they reopened. ..was worth the wait.

This family-owned restaurant is not easy to find, but is highly recommended on this site for good reason as even the local workers agree. It's a pretty tight space that they use rather efficiently. They do breakfast in the morning (although we didn't make it for it), closes down for 1/2 an hour, then re-opens for lunch. We got in... More

Grab a seat wherever there is a spot. Waitresses are super friendly and efficient. The two cooks were jamming to Dave Matthews Band on a little radio which provided the tunes for restaurant.

Very small, full of people and excellent food. We had to wait about 15 minutes, but was worth the wait. We sat at the bar and were amazed by... More

Excellent handmade burgers, friendly service, great prices. A little crowded, not much room for personal space but its part of the ambiance!
