You can select from a variety of specialty burgers...or build your own from scratch. You choose the bun...Burger...sauce...toppings and side. The Greek burger was very good. Chips on the salty side.

I have mixed reviews about the Tin Cow. My family of four decided to try it on a whim. Short wait. Not bad. So the Pros: the atmosphere is causal but upscale. You feel like you could be completely dressed down and feel comfortable or dressed up and not feel overdressed. The wait staff is friendly and very attentive, despite... More

The menu consists mostly of burgers, where the customer marks the options they desire on the menu with a grease pencil. It's good but no where as spectacular as it could be with a little more effort.

We took my fiance here last week for my Fiance Birthday. We live in Destin and drove over to Pensacola because she loves this place so much. We have been many times before and always loved it. This time was different. Our service was mediocre, when I order our drinks the server brought my small children tall cups, no lids.... More

The build your own burger is a great idea! TONS of choices to pick from. The hamburger itself is very good. The chili cheese fries were not very good at all. The sauce for us was just too tomato based for us and not enough of a chili taste. My favorite food there was the blue balls- if you have... More

Located right in the heart of Pensacola. This restaurant is surrounded by shops, coffee shops, and other restaurants. It is a very active place in the evening. This is a build your own burger sort of place. It offers many options of meat, so it has something for every one. My sister, who has gluten intolerance, was able to find... More

I want so much for this place to be successful. But last time my burger was not even close to medium rare at least my wife's was closer. Love the combinations available for your burger just need to be better executed and consistent. Great adult milkshakes and duck fat fries too
