Stopped in for the first time as was not disappointed! Excellent choice of burgers- we got the Firey Ghost with grilled jalapeños and friend got The Boss which he thoroughly enjoyed. Salads were excellent as well and don’t forget to order the onion rings!

They close early so watch the time. Great service and the food was top notch. Great location on Elk right in the middle of town.

Everyone had exactly what they felt like for Breakfast- good options available. It’s busy, so go early or sit on the pavement with a cup of coffee and wait.
