I don't eat a lot of red meat, but when I do, I want to enjoy it, and did I ever! Three of us ordered 3 different burgers, and they were all amazing. My adult sons had a Gamble (chili, jalapenos, etc.) and the McDonald (bacon, cheese, bbq sauce), and I tried - and truly enjoyed - both of those.... More

First time at this location. The service is slow and cannot remember anything. Asked for lime for my water never received it. Asked for a side salad in addition to the grilled veggies that came with my order and she brought me just a salad. They brought the veggies later at what she said was no charge but I was... More

This used to be our go to. The last couple of times we went food wasn't as good. I usually order veggie burger and they changed it and it made me sick. It has a bad taste. Will not be going back for awhile.

My expectations were low - so was pleasantly surprised. Adding bacon makes everything great but the bun is the actual secret ingredient. Not sure where they come from but the bun is soft to eat but holds up well to the Burger! The Burger is worth a trip. Service good, decor standard. Skip the deep fried pickles.

Love this place! Great burgers! Fun atmosphere. Wait staff super friendly and didn't mind keeping the birthday ice cream cake in the back freezer till it was time. Will definitely go again, had a blast!

Hi me and my mom went here today to celebrate her birthday. And the chicken wings that we ordered were half done. Oh yeah this was my first and last visit. The waitress was nice however. The manager offered to cook us more wings. We declined and requested an adjustment on the bill. The manager said that he cooked them... More

A decent place to get a burger. We were sat almost immediately, even though it was a Friday evening. Server came almost as soon as we sat down. Got a delicious appetizer in the southwest egg rolls. The burgers were cooked just right. Got the Kahuna burger with a nice slice of pineapple and a sauce that was a perfect... More

We've enjoyed the Vestavia Hills location a number of times in recent years. Burgers, onion rings, service, all was really good. However, a visit on July 16 was very different. The burgers were not the same fresh meat we have enjoyed in the past. They appeared almost to have been frozen patties. The buns were not the same either. We... More
