“5 Star Menu + Service, 2 Star "getting the food right"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The ambiance and wait staff are great, and the menu is varied. We chatted with others waiting for tables and all mentioned they'd tried many different burgers and liked them all. But for a restaurant who's name wants to "say it all", they missed the mark. Two of the 4 of us moved our doneless level from medium to medium rare when ordering, yet we got one on the medium-well side (just a hit of pink) and the other even less pink. Our waiter said "yeah, some times they come out the way you ordered, and other nights not so well". Good, inexpensive beer selection. Not all beef, they have turkey, lamb, etc. We didn't find it too loud, conversation was easy.

“An average burger restaurant that needs to stand out from the rest.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Went here on a Friday night with the family and was immediately seated. Ambiance and decor of the restaurant is very standard to today's "fast casual" restaurants, but you do sit down to order. Waiter that we had was very good, and even though had many tables, we did not feel like we were being rushed. Food was brought to our table quickly and all orders were correct. Children's meal did seem like they may have been sitting for a bit waiting for the rest of our food. The fries and one of the cheeseburgers seemed to have cooled down a bit.

I had the Christmas burger and my wife had the Caprese burger. After comparing notes, we both felt like they were good burgers, but nothing out of the ordinary that makes them stand out from the rest of the other high-end burger restaurants. Not saying they need a "gimmick" to be the best, but something that makes them stand out a bit more. More daring toppings? not sure. The beef is good, but was not outstanding, the size of the patty was plenty big, making me very full after the meal. Toppings were average, guacamole on my burger seemed generic and store bought. The brioche bun was very good and so was the spicy mayo/dipping sauce they gave us on the side. House fries were ok, but again, just ok.

I am not sure if this will be an establishment we will drive out to on purpose to get burger, but if in that part of town, probably a place I would pick before other burger places in the area.

“Share a burger and get 2 house salads: plenty of food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Their house salads are fresh, crunchy and huge. We always share a burger (the fries are wonderful, with the chipotle sauce to dip in) and each get a salad. With a glass of wine, it's an inexpensive, delicious meal.

“Great variety & very tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Even the buns are delicious! Have had the buffalo burger a couple of times here & not dry - cooked to order. The staff are helpful & look after you well. Yummy sweet potato fries & beer/wine & milkshakes round out a great meal.
