“Great Food, Very Crowded, No Bathroom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I know it sounds petty but I think that establishments should provide rest rooms for their customers, especially restaurants. The food was great but when I asked where the restroom was they directed me to the Holyoke Center a block away. Fortunately we were ready to leave.

“Full of local color and delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is a fun place to eat. There are many varieties of burgers with endless toppings. Fries and frappes are just wonderful. The decor is kitschy and fun. There are even salads available for people who feel compelled to eat something green. Stop next door and browse the bookstore if you have time.

“Outrageously good burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

I had the Dr. Oz and loved it. Beware -there is no bathroom here. Otherwise, great food, shakes and service.

“Incredibly Good Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

There is only one way that such a small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant stays in business - they have some of the best burgers around. Give it a try - you won't regret it.
