Went there for lunch and paid for a burger, diet coke and some fries USD 28. The food was excellent but it is just toooooo expensive and I am not sure whether their patties are worth USD 10 (when seeing the prices for the sandwiches).

The burgers were delicious, but the fries were very oily and the place is not good. So make sure you order at home or take away! Otherwise you gonna arrive home smelling oil!!!

Wonderful burgers, delicious and cooked to the point. You could taste the quality. Loved the fries as well, only thing that bothered me was the seating - I'd have preferred a real restaurant.

Meat: really really good. Cooked perfectly and very tasty. Toppings: average. Bread: I'm not a big fan of these Portuguese muffins, I'd rather stick for a classic brioche bun. Fries: generous portion but not great tasting, too greasy. Overall: a great burger, probably one of the best in the area, but overpriced. For two 1/4 Lb burgers with fries TO... More

Absolutely loved it here and even managed to go back again during our trip. The kobe beef burgers are really special. And served with toppings such as bacon cheese and jalapeños they are even better. If you like avocado you have to try it on the burgers. The regular Idaho fries are great but the sweet potato ones are incredible.... More

This is a different class of burger. We just aren't conditioned to paying $20 for a takeout burger and fries so we generally treat it as a splurge. Both the Kobe and sirloin burgers are nearly perfect every time and the fries are usually top notch too. Side note, the breakfast sandwich they serve before 11am is amazing. Definitely check... More

Great spot serving up one of the best burgers the city has to offer. Go with the 1/4 pound kobe with cheddar and bacon. They take a temperature on the burger, I ordered medium rare and it was spot on. If you're going for lunch, try to get there before noon as the place is small and fills up pretty... More

We arrived at the financial district a late afternoon, after traveling for 24 hours from Europe. We just wanted a quick and decent meal, before we went to bed. Their burgers are absolutely amazing! I'd rather go there to grab a quick bite, than to all those "chain" places.
