“Fantastic Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

If you enjoy a great burger then you do not want to miss this. It is located in downtown Waynesboro but only about 5 minutes from I64 and easy to get to. The restaurant was clean. The service is good with all the servers having great smiles and friendly greetings. I had a bacon cheese burger that was to die for and my wife had a regular burger and got blue cheese dressing on the side to make it a blue cheese burger. Both were hand crafted. Not like some of the pre shaped, possibly frozen, burgers you get at most fast food places.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Nothing fancy, but the food is very good and plenitful. Great place for a quick bite. One thing, the french fries are fantastic, but for 2 people 1/2 of a small order is more than enough. The regular size is huge! Prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly. It is on my rotation.

“Yum yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

A bunch of friends decided to eat here for a cheap night out. We got what we wanted! The prices here are excellent! I ordered the grilled chicken salad and it was delicious! The chicken was plenty and the produce fresh. My fiancé ordered a burger and said it was great. We shared a SMALL fry... That's right, their fry portions are huge! We will definitely be returning!

“Burgertime!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

if you are looking for a great burger like you used to be able to get-this is it! Fresh and hot-get extra napkins because it's sooo juicy! I love the old-style sweet ketchup as well- the fires are not my favorite- i prefer crinkle cut- but these came out crisp and piping hot.

“It's a big step up from the fast foods in quality but not.price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Always packed which is a good sign. A good place to run into friends with a good local feel to it. The fries are shoestring styles, even smaller than McDonald's, which is how I like them. If there is a downside to them is they get cold quickly. Its noisy and the tables are arranged for maximum occupancy. The burgers are just burgers, nothing exceptional and seem to shine mainly because we have grown so accustomed to the poor quality of local fast food. Service is what you would expect for a crowded small restaurant. Good most of the time but can be spotty. It is a good value in my opinion and a big step up from the fast food in quality but not in price. It is a great place for a quick burger when I don't want to fire up my grill. Every town needs a place like this. It fits a good niche.
