Food is very good. Nice selection. Everything I had was delicious. Staff was pleasant and got my food in a timely manner. Definitely overpriced. If you want to try it for the food fine. If your just looking for a good burger hit some tavern on Burger Night.

Ate here two times. Like their burgers and shakes. Curious to see someone attempt the 9 patty "Triple Triple". Their fries are average. Onion rings pretty good. Had a coffee shake which had a pretty mild flavor, and one of their churro shakes which was good and reminded me of eggnog. Shakes do take a while but seemed reasonable for... More

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.

The cheese fries were fries with some shredded cheese on it!!! And not even melted, no flavor and worst of all the food was... More
