Decent food but nothing spectacular. Don't order a shake bc it will come at the end of your meal. Took forever for the milk shake to come... Won't be going back in any hurry

I was very much looking forward to giving this place a try, and yesterday evening, did so. The experience left my wife and I asking ourselves, "is this all there is". I placed our order using their online ordering system. It was efficient, but there's no provision for ordering extra condiments for your burger. Another thing that got me grumbling... More

The burgers are average and priced kinda high. The atmosphere is bright and clean without charm. I avoid the place and suggeswt you do, too. For a good hot dog, go downtown to the Very Best. Want a juicy-delicious burger? Try the LongHorn on Rte. 100S. Mid-day, it's barely any more expensive, and the sides, atmosphere, and service far surpass.

Not every burger place has a veggie burger option. This veggie burger is my favorite. You can get a variety of toppings on it and it is delish! I like their fries extra crispy with no salt. These 2 options give this burger place on my list for those who are interested in a little more healthier fare when they... More

this restaurant is very clean and the service was great and so was the food. I understand that this restaurant gives back to the community by donating a percent of his proceeds everyday to injured race car drivers.

Great burgers, but grossly overpriced. I also have to say the staff was very inattentive. It took about 5-6 minutes before we were acknowledged and our order was taken.
