“Ignored,locals favored”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Everyone around us,that came after we ordered,had there meals way before we did,in a very short time!seems like locals,are favored! Our food was overdone,and on the cold side!! The waiters do more visiting than waiting on the customers orders!!
Would not return again!

“Best Burger in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

For a number of years this place has been noted for 'The Best Burger in Town". On my occasions there it has lived up to that expectation. The fries were good, however I like healhtier sides to choose from. It seemed to lack that.

“Great burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Newt's burgers are phenomenal. The only suggestion I would make is to warn that they cook on the rare side. Make sure that when you order a "Med Well" burger that you specify that you want zero pink or you will get a med rare hamburger.

“Great burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Had a chance to go here. Had a delicious burger and some of the best onion rings. It was so good we want a second time the next night. This time we had the nachos which were great and piled high. If you have a chance definitely give it a try.
