Due to the limited seating, plan on a wait (no reservations) but it is worth it. The food is freshly made, organic and many choices for vegans. Lots of flavor! And then a variety of beer choices. A very friendly staff. One of our favorite places for dinner.

The burgers here are high quality and are very tasty. Mine was served on a soft bun that did not get soggy or fall apart. The side salad was made with fresh ingredients and also very good. Ordered a mojito and it was quite delicious as well. The prices are considerably less expensive compared to other quality burger restaurants in... More

Many different hamburgers with stuff I didn't know I needed on a burger but now desperately want. Combinations are eclectic and fun. What makes them delicious is the Tallgrass Beef, a Kansas- based company that supplies the beef for a healthier, tastier, more environmentally responsible burger. The burgers are BIG (6 oz) and often include more meat and/or cheese toppings... More

Lots of tasteful menu choices with reasonable prices. The inside is very small, but adds to the ambiance of the place. Would definitely recommend.

The hamburguesa burger was delicious! As a solo diner, I felt a little unwelcome and the service was a little slow. I would definitely go back for the burger, though!

Three of us all ordered something different. One meal was the pulled pork. It came out on this big bun, and at first I thought they had forgotten to put anything inside. I opened it up and there was literally two tablespoons of meat and a tablespoon of coleslaw. We asked her if there was some kind of mistake? It... More

I went here with a friend and the experience was excellent. Nice location, food, and service. Not totally what I anticipated so I don't think this will be a regular stop moving forward but still a very excellent experience.

Take time while in the area to visit this small and very casual restaurant. The food is just terrific! Beautiful salads, burgers and fish were enjoyed by everyone in our party. Don't miss the sweet potato tater tots, the poor guy in our group that ordered them, had to share with five other people! The black bean burger was excellent... More
