After two weeks of non-American dining, and a walk through the rain desperately looking for ANYTHING open on a Sunday evening, some American comfort food was a welcome surprise. The burgers were quality beef, well-prepared and with tasty added ingredients. Even the french fries were...More

I want there with my family and all of us didn’t like the burgers or the fries as well. They don’t serve soft drinks as they are healthy and their burgers doesn’t taste healthy at all.

The restaurant had a great feel to it with outdoor and indoor seating. The clientele was mostly youngsters and young adults. They had many types of burgers include vegetarian options. They served beers as well. We ate there multiple times and enjoyed all our meals.

Very basic local spot (think beers with plastic cups and picnic table seating indoors, little plastic cups for dipping sauces with giant ketchup/mayo/mustard pumps). Staff seem to want to do their best. Chicken Burger or the blue cheese burger is pretty good to hit the...More
