Delicious Burger!

I stopped in for a late lunch ordering a cheeseburger - pretty simple with American cheese, ketchup, tomato and lettuce. I upgraded to a pretzel bun too. It was a homerun! This place is a great burger place - really fantastic burgers and reasonable prices. The fries weren't half bad either, albeit... read more

We came here with my whole family & enjoyed a great meal. The stuffed burgers are a nice touch. The buffalo burger was also very yummy. The burgers are 4 - star, but the milkshakes are 5. Amazing! Better than Moomers ice cream. We also liked sampling local sodas & root beer. Would definitely recommend this as a fun family... More

Great place for a great burger! They are super fresh and HUGE! The stuffed burgers are great, plus hand cut fries and local soda makes it a must.

Stopped by here over lunch while working at the local hospital. The restaurant is in an old house, so not a very large dining area. Luckily, there is a lot of room outside to sit and the weather was somewhat nice. Its a little crowded and awkward to order. I was here right at lunchtime. It didn't seem like many... More

My family and I went here after leaving the Cherry Festival and trying to avoid a parade downtown. So glad I thought to check TA for this stop. I had the veggie burger, so good! We tried the sweet potato fries, house fries and onion rings- we shared all of these as a family. Then had a chocolate shake. Left... More

Drove by going to Dentist. Stopped in on way back. Good, quirky and a nice feel to the place. Lots of patrons told me it was good before we even tried it. Will be going again next week. Had a real comfortable mom and pop feel to it.

Awesome Burgers, no matter which one you get. Great quaint location, just west of downtown, eat inside or out. Fast service for such fresh burgers. Our go-to place when we have company in from out of town!

Great take off on an already great food, the burger. Order inside and make it the way you like and it is served in a paper bag, no plates needed. The price was right and the folks were great.

Always on the quest for the best in burgers, word of mouth took us to visit Slabtown Cafe and Burgers. Immediately fell in love with the decor. Nice option to sit outside in the patio area in good weather. The three of us tried different burgers: Slabby Patty, TC Cherry and a single cheeseburger. Nice taste to the meat, little... More

Our group of 24 ate here mid afternoon & we ordered quickly & were served our food quickly. The food was of great quality. The burgers were flavorful with lots of variety. The chicken Caesar wrap is wonderful. Fries are yummy too! Would recommend! Will come back when in the area.
