“Good solid burger - nothing exceptional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Spouse had the lunch special - regular burgers and firies which she liked. I got the "Greek Burger" which was okay - nothing exceptional. Good basic food, but nothing terribly exceptional.

“Ok burgers, but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Came with the family, two kids two adults. The burgers were good, but not the best I've had. They were seriously overpriced as well...which was disappointing. The onion rings saved them and left our opinion relatively high.

“Hearty burgers and great sides!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for something light, this is not really your place. If you want a substantial burger with innovative toppings and good sides than you are all set! There is usually a burger of the month as well as tuna, lamb and lobster (in season). The onion rings and sweet potato fries are wonderful. If you have room left over get one of the milk shakes! I'm partial to a burger with cheddar and bacon.

Kids eat well here too- they can get a meal with sliders or grilled cheese that includes fries. At lunchtime they also offer special deals.

There is always good music on the stereo (and for you children of the 70's School House Rock in the restrooms!) This is a kid friendly, family friendly, solo diner friendly sort of place. In short, one of the places to be sure you check out!

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We don't have these burger places in Milwaukee...I loved it. Great options including corn on the cob! Friendly staff and good food - what more can a girl ask for after a long day of being a tourist?

“Awesome Burgers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Our new favorite joint! I think I have finally succeeded in locating a burger that will replace my love of In-N-Out, as native SoCal person...awesome burgers, sweet potato fries, and the rosemary garlic fries are to die for.

Great service, speedy, cooked to order, and they will doctor up your burger how ever you want it. Fun place to hang out as well.
