This place is absolutely delicious!! I always make my own vegan burger and have sweet potato fries on the side :P There is also a great happy hour 7 days a week from 4-7pm! Great cocktails for only $5!

Ate here recently - service was really average - had to wave my arm in the air to get service - and I was sitting at the bar. Onion rings were ok - burger decent.
