You won't leave hungry after the enormous burgers served up here. They don't skimp on quality, though! Everything is always absolutely fresh and perfectly prepared. The buns are sourced from a local bakery. Really delicious burgers!

Stopped here on a family vacation and had a late lunch of giant burgers, onions rings, sweet potato fries and salad. All were excellent. I got a cheeseburger with blue cheese, and it was done to perfection. LOVED the onion rings. Wish we had been in the area long enough to visit for dinner.

I love burgers, expertly cooked creative burgers. I don't eat them all the time, so when I do I'm looking for a real treat. Godfather's always delivers that treat. All the burgers are terrific but I have to admit the first time I ordered the Soprano burger I tasted an order I couldn't refuse. (Ok, that was lame but I... More

When I need a red meat fix I come here for their great grass fed angus burgers as well as delicious fries, side salad and gluten free buns. The best burgers I've ever had.

Family enjoyed cheeseburger with a side of bacon ("best bacon I've ever had") and grilled cheese ("grilled cheese was epic"). Burgers were tasty and gluten-free buns are available. Service was efficient and friendly. Decor won't make sense to young kids, and it feels more like a bar than a restaurant (perhaps the lighting), but it's actually pretty good for kids.... More

Went for a late lunch and order sliders medium rare to rare. They were weel done and dry. Nobody noticed me tryinfg to get their attention for over 20 minutes and there were only 4 tables filled. Finally I asked manager about it, and was told they it was difficult to cook sliders and they all came that way. I... More

Timothy, I want to apologize for not making a better first impression -- this was definitely not how we wanted you to feel while you were here. First of all, we should have nailed the sliders -- they are a little more challenging to prepare than a regular burger, but that's on us, and we should have made them just... More

Supposed bar/restaurant that serves burgers in dimly lit upscale surroundings which is probably for the best as the food is average at best. It's meant to be a more expensive bar/restaurant deal, but it tastes no better than a burger from a takeout/food truck. Their signature sauce had no discernible flavor besides stale cheese and the food as a whole... More

Our ingredients are exceptionally fresh -- from our free-range beef, to buns that La Boulanger delivers daily, and everything else in between, each item that goes into your burger comes from within 30 miles, and it's the best stuff available to us. That's why I'm surprised to hear that the quality didn't come across in your meal -- if that... More

For the most part, this is our family's go to burger eatery because it's close to our house and 90% of the time it's an excellent burger. The owners always treat you like family and an overall cool setting.
