“Creative tasty burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Yummy angus burgers with creative toppings including avocado,maple smoked bacon, haystack fried onions, and delicious cheeses and breads. I am always happy with my burger! Fries are sometimes a bit salty but I am a fan of the sweet potato smashfries (tossed in olive oil with garlic and rosemary). The issue here is the wait - often it takes ten minutes or more to place an order and often twenty minutes or more to get your order.....Fresh is good but waiting is not. Great burgers but make sure you are not in a rush....it will take awhile....

“Good burgers, nice fresh toppings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a good burger, the toppings are nice and fresh, and there is a nice variety, guacamole, fresh veggies, chipotle mayo, etc. The burger is high quality, but was cooked more than I like and a bit dry. I understand that burgers need to be cooked to medium or well, but this was more towards well done. The garlic fries are terrific!

“Can't believe all the HYPE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We went to eat here over the weekend. My son wanted to try it out and had heard they had excellent burgers and sides.

This place has only been open since early October. We arrived around 7pm and the place was packed. The line extended out the door. Every single booth, tables inside and outdoor patio area were at full capacity.

Although the line was long we were able to get through rather quickly and place our order.
We came with a party of 6 and placed various orders. They offer flash fried vegetables which include carrots and green beans. I ordered that and a burger. The veges were soaked in and dripping in oil. The burger on the other hand was not so bad. We took our order to go since there were not any seats available. Everyone else in our party was not too impressed. The sides were lacking in size, they were only filled halfway up the container.


This store is part of a chain and I wish they offered wine but, they do not at this time. Alot of their other chains carry beer and wine. But, what do you expect from a burger place right ?

I probably will not go back again. But, for those of you who have not been at least give it a try and see for yourself.
