We were going to the other place, where the waiting time the was hours, so we came here. We were lucky: great burger, good fries and beer, fairly priced. Good location and friendly staff, fast service. They also made burgers for us to take out

I've tried just about every burger and it is a unique and savory taste. The umami ketchup is a plus, it was almost addicting. Eat in, do not do delivery.

I recommend the Umami burger to accompany your fries and your beer. We ordered a half portion of fries to share and we should have gotten the full portion. Good place on restaurant row to grab a casual bite.
