“Well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

Two things. Burgers (with side of fries/chips) and beer. If you want anything else, this is not the place. There is no gluten-free and not much for green leafy vegetables.

The two things they have though are well done. Lots of different burger choices and impressive beer selection. Different spices on the fries, I had Cajun and loved it. Good atmosphere, good service.

“THE BEST BURGERS!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

This is a favorite spot for my friends and I! They have the best burgers! These are small places, hold 50 people or so. They make the food right in front of you so you know it's fresh. My favorite is the Humpty Dumpty- with the egg! The burgers are inexpensive, so you have more money for the beer! The fries and chips are great. I would recommend trying the R-dip with the potato sides. Delish! The beer selection is great! You cannot get free water, only bottled, so if you don't like beer- be brave and try the raspberry one! We get food to go quite often and the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because once in awhile the burgers are very pink in the middle and I don't like that. We now ask for them to be well done and have had no problems! Go try it!

“Don't want to miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2014

Interestingly most the reviews are talking about the burgers. The burgers and chips were very good, but the beer selection and knowledge of the beers was great. The taste portions were more than generous. The staff was extremely friendly. We had a great evening, especially writing "beer mail". You write postcards and they mail them for you. All our friends and family thought the mail was fun to receive, and enjoyed knowing they were thought of while I was away.

“YES.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

Go here! Bring your friends! Come hungry! Make sure you get two orders of fries and remember that water is not free here (the point is that you get a beer, duh). The burger with the egg on it is fantastic as are the sweet potato fries, but really you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all awesome!

“Burgers and burgers. Brilliantly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2014

Came highly recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. Really nice burger in a lively atmosphere. You're really eating in a bit of a cramped bar but the burgers are tasty and the portions are generous. Nice selection of beers. We also found the waiters to be friendly too.
