Good burgers, great fries

It's another Nashville burger place, one of seemingly hundreds. The burgers are good but it's hard to distinguish one good burger place from another in this town. The fries do it here.

It's another Nashville burger place, one of seemingly hundreds. The burgers are good but it's hard to distinguish one good burger place from another in this town. The fries do it here. Perfect combination of crispy and soft, just greasy enough to fully satisfy, but not overly so. Also a nice kale salad. Put a bison patty over the top.

We only eat Bison and the Bison Burgers here are just some of the best ever! We indulge in the fries and it's SO worth it. Everything we've tried is always great including the pimento cheese appetizer. Bring your appetite!

Had a good burger and fries with a good beer. The staff was friendly and service was quick. I made room for the Krispy Kreme Pudding for dessert. The food was good but I wouldn't say over the top. If your in the neighborhood it's worth a stop.

I cannot begin to describe how delicious my lunch was. I ordered the Patty Melt and it was outstanding. The service was excellent and the food came quickly. Thank you, thank you for the great meal. Now, please open a restaurant in California!

A great burger taste good and looks good. Two people can share this burger. We try some of the craft beer too and we like a couple of them, be sure and ask for a sample taste of their craft beer. Very small restaurant but worth the wait or sit at the bar.

Stopped after a long drive. There was a wait which went quickly. While we waited they gave us a small cup of free fries. The place is very cramped, loud and the seats are small and hard. I had a kids burger and it was good, normally small burgers are dry. Price was resonable. I wouldn't return.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat one afternoon. Friendly, fast and the burgers were the best burgers my dining companion and I have had in a long time. Can get busy but absolutely worth the wait.
