When you first walk in you will feel at ease. All kinds of burgers with everything you could imagine. Milk shakes are awesome. Everyone is friendly when serving you. The owners are great people.

Nothing to write home about. Food was adequate but not great. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. I prefer the other burger place north of the tracks because the fries are better and the meat is more well seasoned.

Back Alley Burger is an excellent place for a superb gourmet burger. Pretty cool atmosphere as well but the food is the ticket here.

Back Alley Burger is such a treat! With a great feel to the place, you walk in and get to pick from many other items than just burgers. But the Build Your Own Burger is for sure the way to go! And you can't leave without have a milkshake, they are perfection. I love going there!

When we want a delicious, fresh burger we go here. There are so many options for toppings and I can get a turkey burger. I especially like the Olive You Burger....salty goodness. The onion rings are some of the best we've had and the fried pickles are also very delicious. And if you're not in the mood for one of... More
