Good burgers and great milkshakes. Also they have a lot of coupons online so be sure to use them to save a few dollars. Reasonably priced as well

The service was great with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The burger was fanastic and make sure you get the fries "smashed" (cooked with olive oil, rosemary and garlic) - they are worth the trip alone. The only downside is that it's not a place to...More
