Awesome unique burgers! Reasonably priced as well. Get the truffle fries as an upgrade, yummy! Great service as well.

“Was good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

I have been here three times now. First one was great, second was so-so, third our last. Had the same each time and we won't be going again.

“Very Good Burgers... Very Weird Combinations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

There is no way to describe all the different types of toppings they have for your burgers, and I'm not talking about just bacon (e.g., brisket, duck, pulled pork, eggs, donuts, etc.). The best selling appears to be the Fatty, which is a bacon cheeseburger between two grill cheese sandwiches. Let's break away from this to deal with the basics. A "Plane Jane" is a burger with lettuce, tomatoes and onions. You can order the burger red, pink, or no pink. Excellent burger, usually done as asked (or close). Comes with fries or upgrade to sweet potato fries or topped fires (again, various combinations). Similarly, milkshakes have basic kinds and more elaborate combinations (inc some with alcohol). Even the basic milkshakes are excellent. Malteds have way too much malt in them, so avoid unless you are a huge malt fan. Lots of friendly and attentive waitstaff. Overall, this is a place a burger fan can go to for a very good burger, or a bunch of extraordinary adventurous (and extraordinarily hungry) group. Warning, not priced like a fast food burger joint, but not that much more than the next step up.

“Best burger I've had on 2 week vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Absolutely fresh meat and ingredients make all the difference in the world on these excellent burgers. My family all agreed that this is one of our new favorite places to eat when we come through Colorado again!
Unique menu items mixed with an attitude of "however you like it" really appealed to me right off the bat. When I saw that they had a Peanut Butter burger...I almost lept out of my skin. I adapted it to have mushrooms (which were amazing), cheddar cheese (which tasted excellent), and grated parmesan and olive oil (great touches for taste). WOW, even as I write this, I want to eat it again...seriously that good. My kids loved the sliders. My wife had the plain burger and really loved it too.
Service was great as well.
I hear the shakes are great, so I will try that out next time.
One small downside, price is a bit higher than most burger joints by about $1 or $2, but you won't care once you taste how fresh it is...

“Good Service, Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Great gourmet style burgers. They can do simple burgers as well but where they really shine is in their strange combinations. Combination of donuts, eggs, bacon, and burger patty was delicious. Will definitely stop by again the next time I am in Colorado Springs.
