Its in an upscale shopping area. Safe & good parking with a bunch of shops & restaurants. The service is order at counter, find a table or booth, and your food will be... More

We had just gotten to FLL and checked into our hotel next door. It was lunch time, so we wandered over. You order your food at the counter and then it is brought to you. The burger are hand formed and large. The fries are good and look to be cut in the restaurant. The Caesar is very good. Apparently,... More

Great food. I had takeaway with a 10 minute drive back home. The quality always goes down in that amount of time. But not here, The burger was cooked to perfection and the fries were crispy!

This is a family business and everybody knows what that means (in a lot of cases): great customer service, great attentions, it's almost like having home-made food. The owner is the chef. I had "The hottest burger" and it was awesome! Not too spicy because I had the regular pepper jack cheese (but I eat a lot of hot sauce... More

Great chicken wrap and friendly service in a "mom and pop" type of atmosphere. Serves wine and beer. Table attendants are very friendly. Would highly recommend.

It was excellent as usual. Ellie had a great looking salad and I had the Mahi Mahi. Wanted the giant cookie for dessert but resisted it. It was good to see Lenore s smiling face and will go back often.

This restaurant isn't much on ambiance. It's a burger joint. You come here for the food, particularly the burgers. I got my burger with lettuce, tomato, sautéed mushrooms, and grilled onions. The burger was cooked properly to my specifications, medium rare. And it was bun-gaping huge, fully a half pound of meat. The bun itself wasn't much, just your generic... More

Super Hambergers. Rather large, so you might want to split. Rather pricy, and atmosphere not too terrific. I would prefer take-out and eat at home.
