Came in on the rumor of alcoholic shakes - discovered the funnel cake fries. Do you even know how amazing those are? We will be back to try several more items that looked interesting. We might even get around to a burger! Side note - I like your kitchen full of pirates - very charming. See you again soon!

You have to try everything from a side salad reinvented to a corndog to some amazing cheese and bacon fries to a delicious burger while washing it down with a tasty beer and finishing it up with a milkshake!! You wont go wrong any direction you take.

My FB and I went to get him a birthday burger. He had the Kobe and I had the blue cheese burger with chutney. We shared a basket of the truffle fries. His burger was good, mine was great, not too much blue cheese, just a well made and cooked burger. The fries were a bit dry and just ok.... More

Excellent burgers; having the burgers on a bed of greens is an option (for $3 charge). Vegetarian options are very well thought out. Pleasant and open late nights.

I remember when this restaurant opened originally at another location. The truffle fries were and still are the best fries that I've ever had. The sweet potato fries are also pretty decent. The variety of tasty dipping sauces are also an added benefit. The black & blue burger has always been my favorite burger. I also love the Topeka location.... More

This is a place we love eating at with friends and family. It is perfect when you have vegetarians in the mix and you always have the opportunity to try something different. I personally love the sweet potato fries.

This is my go to place when we have out of town visitors. I am in love with the truffle fries and they have some interesting sauces to go with them. I get the Garbo with no bun and they put it on a lovely pile of fresh greens. My friend had a burger he said it was the best... More

Arguably one of the best burger places I've been. Their burgers are fresh and the fry selection is unreal. (Try the sweet potato or truffle fries) also, their alcoholic milkshakes are amazing. Last time I went they forgot to give us the fries we ordered and the wait staff was so friendly and kind with getting them to our table.... More

I have been here several times through the years and I'm never disappointed! Their burgers are SO delicious. Sweet potato fries are excellent as well.
