We went on a Sunday morning and told there would be about a ten minute wait. There were a number of tables for four waiting to be cleared so we were okay with the wait. However, three people came in and were asked how many....They were then immediately seated after a table was cleared for them. We were shocked, but decided to stay anyway and wait for a table in hopes we would be seated soon. After twenty minutes, we were finally seated only to have to wait another twenty minutes to order. My friend’s food was fine; however, my two scrambled eggs looked more like a half an egg. Needless to say, we won’t be going back.More

Our office ordered carry out today from this restaurant and I was not impressed with any of the food. This was the 1st time eating here. My burger had onions and tomato and I asked for only mayo and lettuce. Got neither one of those....And if I would have known what focaccia bread was I never would have ordered! I hate onions. The fries were soggy and most were very dark brown. I asked for extra ketchup and I got one packet. My co workers were also not very happy with their food. There was at least correct, just didn't taste very good. I will never recommend or eat here again. The only reason I gave a 1 star was because the strawberry milkshake was good.More

This is one of my favorite places to eat! The service is fast. The staff is friendly. They make the BEST turkey BLT. Also, go for the cheesy tots. You won't regret stopping here.

We finally decided to give them a try and were so pleased with the food that we ate there two days in a row! The menu has plenty of burger choices as well as some sandwiches. While the sandwiches are good, the burgers are absolutely...wonderful. Consider sharing a side as the burgers and sides are huge. Looking forward to taking our friends there. You order at the counter and take a number to your table. The menu is large, but they have a copy on the wall near the door so you can study it before getting in line. The staff was very helpful. We had lunch here about 11:30 and it was quiet and fast considering they cook to order.More

My wife and I went here because we had heard a lot of great things about their burgers. We don’t use a lot of salt in our cooking so we were a little turned off by the saltiness of the burgers and sides. If you...like a lot of salt in your cooking, then you will Love these burgers.More

This family owned business serves delicious sandwiches on wonderful focaccia bread. Fries and tots are great too. On top of that, prices are very reasonable.

Visited at about 6:45 pm on a Monday. About 4 tables with about 15 people dining in; 2 or 3 waiting at counter for take out orders. Partner ordered tenderloin and I ordered chicken salad and a milkshake. Wanted to wash my hands prior to...getting food. Men’s bathroom was locked. Waited outside BR door for >5 minutes but still locked. 2 others came to wait for bathroom to open up. I gave up and went back to table. Kept my eye on bathroom door and no one came out in over 20 min. Other men came and tried door to find it locked in this time. Took about 25-30 minutes for our 2 sandwiches to arrive at table. Asked server if men’s bathroom was out of service. He said “Oh, is it locked again?” Said he’d get the key and unlock it right away. He went back to front ordering area and never got key or unlocked bathroom. Guess he forgot or was too busy with other things. We finished sandwiches and still my shake had not arrived. We were about to leave when young woman delivered shake, apologizing for long wait (about 40-45 min after it was ordered) and apologized as they had ‘run out of whip cream’ as well. Staff person stopped by table as we were leaving to ask how everything was; told him politely about our experience and suggested he unlock men’s restroom for those still dining. Food was OK and shake (which I drank in car on way home) was pretty good. Will likely not return; wait was too long. Food OK but nothing spectacular. Not unlocking bathroom when told by customers it is locked not good. Would suggest management put a sign on bathrooms saying something like “If bathroom locked for >5 minutes, please let us know.” I understand anyone can have a bad day, so maybe we just hit this place on one of those.More

Up to three weeks ago, the burgers were juicy and tasty. Yesterday, I ordered a burger that had the juices literally pressed out of them by cooks who used metal presses. They flipped the burger and repeated the process. The result was a thin, overcooked,...dry, tasteless burger with no juice or body. The manager said he had received complaints from customers who said the burgers were too juicy. Go figure. Much pricier than fast food chain burgers but with the same quality. So disappointing. So, go dry or go elsewhere.More

Decide on your order from the menu above the cashier. Limited menu and sides. OK for a quick bite. This is not one for the health conscious diner.

Within the NewBo Market, this place has a great variety of burgers with creative ingredients. The burgers have a great taste, and my son really like the mac-and-cheese on his burger.

I visited the "Fountains" address, which is a full restaurant compared to the New Bo location (IDK if that is still open). It was fast, decent priced and delicious. The burger is large and filling. The fries had a great seasoning/taste to them as well....The place is clean, has great service and a nice open atmosphere.More

Saucy Focaccia was a finalist for the best Burger in Iowa. It was really pretty good too! It's a fast food type restaurant. The food came out pretty fast and it was pretty good. The kids that work here are very nice and explained things...as it was our 1st time. They feature gourmet burgers and hand cut fries, although our fries for a little under cooked. The buns were very good!More

Just a head's up, the website says the 3rd street location is closed. We went to 5100 Fountains Drive NE. We came here for lunch on our way back from camping. We all ordered bacon cheeseburgers, except for the 4 year old, who loves mac...and cheese. We added large fries with cheese and bacon. They brought the food out to pretty quickly. The fry portions were huge, but good to split for a few people. The burgers were very good, everything from the focaccia bun to the cheese sauce. We'd eat here if we were in the area again. Staff was pretty friendly too.More

Great food and atmosphere for a fast food restaurant. Unique menu items served fresh and hot. Nice outdoor seating area near water fountains. Emailed receipts nice for business travelers.
