There was nothing big about my burger. The burger patty was so smashed down you couldn't even taste it. Thinnest burger ever! The bun was fresh, lots of ketchup & mustard- that's all you could taste. Thumb's down on this one! And, I thought it...More

We stopped here after a day at Mesa Verde. We were starving when we arrived, and we left stuffed! We all had the big burger and french fries. 3 people=approx. $35.00. The burgers are big but the meat is very flat. It reminded me of...More

Stop in to get something to eat. It did not disappoint. The burger was huge and the green chilli was great.

An old fashioned hamburger joint just off the tourist path. The food is really fine. Great even. But it is really expensive. Half again as much as most places it competes with. So shut your eyes and pay the check. The food is (almost) worth...More

First off, I was overcharged by over $2 yet the girl at the register could not explain why. A little snack ended up costing over $12. The prices on the menu were not what I was charged and I didn't even get my shake until...More
