The atmosphere was better than the burgers

We came for dinner on a Saturday around 6PM and obviously the place was packed. We grabbed a beer from the bar and stood in the crowded entry for about an hour until we were seated.

We go to this place often and it's for two reasons: food and atmosphere. The burgers are the absolute best and we bring friends here all the time to try them out. The fries are also amazing. I don't know what they do but they are unlike any other fries we get at other burger joints. Aside from the burgers... More

Very small place with amazing food. Staff was excellent - explained specials and very friendly. Food was all I heard about and more. Be prepared to have the best burger you've had - ever!

I haven't been here since it burned down in 2010, they rebuilt and is similar to what I remember... Arrived at 12:30 on a Wednesday and the place was full, within 5 minutes a table was ready... I decided on the "classic" Nookie Supreme Burger, was a great burger, the fries are great too! Back in the day I did... More

The food here is the sort of stuff that will ruin any attempt to watch your weight. The Leprechaun Legs are a must, hope they keep the Southern Fries. It's only a monthly special right now. Despite the outward appearance of a bar, this is a nice place to have lunch.

4 Happy campers, have been wanting to stop in and very glad we did. We were told it would be 20 minutes, instead about 5 minutes later we were seated in the basement/bowling area. The atmosphere is fun, great place to hang out while waiting on meals. We all had different burgers and everyone was very happy. The malts were... More
