Stopped in for a late lunch. Typical chain-type burger joint ... the burgers were good enough, but the place was super-busy, which caused the service to be a little frantic. It was fine; we'd go there again, but wouldn't make a special trip.

Many different kinds of burgers to choose from. I had the olive burger and it was delicious. Cute atmosphere and good food right on the main street of downtown Galena. Make sure you get a picture of yourself on the toilet on your way out.

Come and eat the burgers! The patty is huge and the flavour is great. I had the Blue Moon, and the cheese brings another layer of flavour to the burger. We took the food out hence am unsure of the service.

Eat here if you're very hungry. Sandwiches are great and the alcoholic milkshakes are a must! Great place to stop for lunch and you won't have to worry about dinner!

We heard good things and were very happy with the choice. We split the Sante Fe burger and sweat potato fries and all were good. Great for lunch
