We've been here a few times and have always had good experiences. The service is pretty quick, everyone is friendly, food comes out fairly fast and is nice and hot. I love that I can build a burger. As a vegetarian, I'm usually pretty limited with veggie burgers in places - they use 2 different types of frozen burgers, for... More

Some of my high school teachers recommended this restaurant to me, so I thought my husband and I could try it one night. While it is a tiny space and there is no visible parking, the food and service are terrific. There is a small selection on the menu, but then, they also offer a build-your-own-burger option. You check off... More

The only redeeming quality is free dessert on your birthday. No parking, poor service, half hour to get coffee brewed and served, over-priced. 2 hamburgers, 1 onion rings, 1 salad, 2 coffees, tax & tip= $50. Burger King is a better deal all the way around!!! It is a barroom, not a restaurant. If I could rate less than one,... More

After a facial at nearby Ch'i Spa, we used our Groupon coupon for $25 to try this hamburg joint/sports bar. It was quiet in the late afternoon but Tom, the engaging waiter, made us feel right at home. We started off with a cocktail and the Onion Rings ($6.99) which were excellent, came out steaming hot and lip-smacking good. Then... More

This restaurant is a little small only seating 36'ish people at the tables. It does have a bar where you can sit and eat as well. We arrived at 8:30 on a Saturday night and had to wait about 10 minutes to get a seat. Once seated we were promptly waited on and the drinks and food flowed without a... More

The staff was friendly, the food was fresh and had great portions. I absolutely loved the burger I got. I ordered a turkey burger with hot sauce, blue cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato with their homemade fries.

Rare burger bar is a custom build your own burger. You can select your own bread, meat, temp, sauces, toppings and fries. I recommend the rare house burger or the tx burger served with huge onion rings. The specials are awesome ask for the wings or nachos. This is a must eat. Check it out.
