“Great Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We had lunch here, twice. You "build" your burger, choosing your meat and accompaniments. Great, freshly made burgers with really good patties, fresh vegetables and sauces. Good fries too. The restaurant is clean and airy and has a nice outdoor seating area too. The staff were very friendly, and were very helpful for directions and suggestions of places to visit nearby.

“Great custom burgers and shakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The price tag is a bit hefty. But for great tasting burgers that you can customize pretty much any way you want ,along with creative house combinations, and also tasty adult milk shakes, it's definitely worth checking out.

“great shakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The handmade ice cream shakes are really delicious here. The burgers rock and the garlic and rosemary aioli fries are wicked good.

The chili is not recommended; it's not very spicy and a little on the watery side. When the market special is a crab cake ORDER IT. You will not regret it.

Not bad for a burger joint.

“Amazing Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is the best place I have ever been for Burgers. You get to build your own from the bottom up. When you are seated you receive a menu to build your burger. Also just keep in mind that the weight of the burger that you select is after it is cooked...So the 1 lb burger is actually 1 lb plus everything you add.....HUGE Burgers, Fantastic Staff, Great location!

“Built my own Yummy Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

A whole new experience for us while on holiday in LA. Built our own burger by filling an order form. We choose the burger, the type of cheese, four toppings from a selection of more than twenty, the sauce and bun. We choose the weight of the burger too. There is options for vegetarians. The service was super. Very friendly staff. Will go back if on holiday in LA again.
