I know this place has gotten good reviews re: its hamburgers, but our visit was disappointing. First, the mayonnaise is kept out all day. The Mayo had a watery consistency.

We were very pleased with our experience here. They serve excellent burgers and great beer. There are tv's with games on and it's very casual and family friendly. It was a good value for our dining dollar too.

You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. Loved the Rodeo Burger and the Southwest Burger. Three different types of fries. About $15-$20 per person, with beers.

This is by far the best burger joint around. If it's closed or you want a more restaurant style lunch or dinner head over to 10 Railroad St. In Morrisville for, you guessed it, a blue donkey burger!

It's a burger joint. Staff is friendly. It's overpriced but would you rather eat McDonalds? Not me! Turkey burger and veggie burger options are good. Good beer, casual. Stupid hours of operation. Closes at 8!
