“Wait for Great Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Their burgers are one of the best I've ever tasted. Just about the only place I'll order it med-rare. Kids love them. They ate way more than their usual servings. Always there is a wait line during lunch hours, but always it is worth the wait.

“Local Joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

That never lets us down. Great spot if you don't want to dress up and just want a beer and a great burger. Expect minimal service and you will be overwhlemed

“Great Burgers and fantastic service : )”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Think tavern in the backwoods of Wisconsin. Now think, great burgers packed and cooked fresh. Fresh ingredients made with love! Served by some of the best staff in any five star restaurant. If you return on an infrequent schedule you are still remembered, as is your order. Arrive early or late, or be prepared to wait.

Beware: If you like tomatoes on your burgers, sandwiches, etc. they have ketchup. No tomatoes. And, they take only cash but have an ATM for convenience!

“Back roads Tavern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The burgers are great. There aren't many options on the menu, but everything is great. Cash only, so make sure you have cash. And don't be surprised if there's a wait, but it's well worth it.
