Busy!

There was a line to be seated, but we were asked if we'd be willing to sit at the bar which we did. They were very busy! Portions are small, but the prices are good. Nice meal.

A quick food restaurant in side the shopping mall. Quick it was not!! Although we seat at the bar. They probably forgot about our meal.... All in all the food is ok , place is cozy. Price reasonable.

Oh my god I had the best burger here it was so good and i loved the atmosphere here. Real 50s diner feel to it. Despite being so full i was going to burst I still managed to fit in an Oreo sundae and it was amazing. Definitely worth a visit for a nice relaxed family meal. Or just a... More

We had 2 burgers there and both tasted good. If you are in a hurry it may take a while to find a seat during the weekend. Anyway everybody was kind and fast to attend us.

We just walked around and we saw this restaurant that looked like a traditional restaurant from the movies so we tried it. I can really say that it was the best burger in my life and their unlimited delicious french fries I can not describe in words. A must try restaurant where I'm looking forward to come again.

This restaurant is located right in the mall in the food court area. They keep this place super retro, very friendly and have a great menu with very attentive servers. Pricing is incredible, try the cheese fries and their milkshakes. Just a good place to hang out and hopefully you won't have to wait too long for a table, as... More

This restaurant is in the Outlet Mall. It was crowded so we eat at the bar. Food was good (hamburger with bacon) and chocolate shake was also good, as they are handmade. Service was very good and fast.
