Mid city has unbeatable cheeseburgers and fresh cut french fries. The restaurant has a BYOB policy and a very casual atmosphere which works great for a relaxed evening with friends. They always have a huge selection of homemade cheesecake if it's possible to save room for dessert.

This is mainly a light night establishment. I think they open at 5 pm and close at 5 am, something like that. In my opinion, however, they have some of the best burgers in town. They have a different variety of burgers and sandwiches with as much beef as you can handle. Up to a 2 pounder, I believe. I'm... More

The food isn't half bad, but that's if your wiiling to deal with the dirty employees and owner. There are pictures of dicks drawn all over the bathroom. The dining area is dirty and smells.

Order was wrong and the owner thought he could fix it by sticking his hands in another plate grabbing bacon and throwing it on mine? I've worked in service industry and have never witnessed this or the way he handled it, more or less harassed me. I've been a loyal customer for years having working in the bars surrounding this...

OPEN LATE! YIPPEE! I have SO enjoyed being able to get great food late at night in JC. The burgers are absolutely the best around: flavorful and juicy! Had the buffalo burger last time. HOLY SMOKES! That thing ROCKS! It was the special that day, and they don't have it very often, but they should put it on the menu... More

We probably would have enjoyed this restaurant more if our expectations hadn't been set so high. Friends raved about how everything was fresh and prepared from scratch. I was excited to see they had fried Portobello mushrooms as an appetizer. I love those and they are so hard to find. The salad came out first and it was really nice.... More

Jeff is a genious. The food at Mid City is creative, high quality and tasty. I would never think to go anywhere else in town for a burger. Get over your opinions of the decor and realize that the owner spends his money on high quality ingredients. Also, make your evening better by taking advantage of the byob policy.

OK, so this restaurant lacks in aesthetic appeal. However, the food is very good, especially the home-made chips and the saucy sauce. They do make a point to carefully prepare vegetarian food separate from meat-containing food.

Really good food, not expensive and the staff is very flexible. You want a cheeseburger with scrambled eggs on the side at 4am, they'll do that. Ask for Fred and tell him Karen said he'd fix whatever you want.

This restaurant has been around for about 5 years and does not appear to have had any updates - the building has been used for many things and little was done to convert to present day restaurant. Much could be done with a simple thorough cleaning (scrub everything). Even first impressions were tainted by grime (cash register and counter were... More
