“Wow, burger & shake! Wow, price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Baileys and cream shake was probably the among the five best milkshakes I've ever had! The burger was top notch rivaling those you might order in a good steakhouse. It was over $30 for two people to dine, but the food was good enough to bring us back.

“Burger lover's delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This place is good for takeout or dining in. Fun for groups. My favorite is the regular beef burger w mojo sauce plus an order of fries. They have huge onion rings and a tuna burger that's good, too. One nitpick--GPS seems to have a tough time giving correct directions. I think the street address and business address are different.

“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!
