“Would never come back honestly.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Would never come back honestly for a few reasons.

Everything is a la carte, you have to buy your burger, drink, and fries ALL separate.
Everything is horribly overpriced. ($6 for a small shake?)
Its additional money if you want to share food.
Besides our waiter, the staff were not friendly at all, some came off as very rude.
I understand this is a bar, but it was horribly loud. I was literally yelling to the people at my table and no one could hear anything.
The food was greasy. It is about three times more expensive than just going to your regular fast food restaurant..
Also, parking was terrible.

Save your money and go somewhere else.

“By far one of the best burgers in the area...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

LOVE LOVE the food. Diner atmosphere. Fun menu. The burgers are excellent. Tater tots addictive. They have an awesome Turkey burger. So many places ruin Turkey burgers. Fun fun place. Wish the place was bigger to accommodate all the folks who have found this place! Just a great little gem in the city.

This place looks like a diner, very Retro. Good burgers and great drinks. A lots of Detroit gear and it has a pretty good size lower level.

“Loved the burgers, fries , Detroit dogs, and grilled salmon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Combine a great variety of quality food, attentive service, Motown music , youthful energy , and a historic Corktown location. How could anyone not love this place?
