We were really excited to try this place! The fries are awesome. The burgers were nothing special though. I actually didn't like mine at all. Prices are slightly higher than I'd like but an okay place to go if you just want an average burger.

We enjoyed trying the reuben/burger combo--I suggest you split it as my husband and I did, and use a fork rather than try to pick it up. The burger portion was large, but seemed to be a frozen slab, nothing exceptional.

We all had a different burger and they were moist and delicious. My brother had a bloody mary and said it was one of the best he had had. My nephew from California rated it in his top 5 burgers.

Busy but worth the wait!! Burgers are fantastic and ribs are definite sleepers!! Decor is very fun and help is well versed in food allergies, a big plus these days.
