Nice place, nice staff, nice food ! Do you really need anything more to enjoy your burger? After my first visit here it has been my reference-point for burgers, and even after having tried other places in the area this is still my favorite ! Suggested !

Very good burgers served with homemade chips, beans or slaw. Their selection of burgers is fantastic but have no fear you can make your own too. I also love their conch fritters but sadly the rocky mountain oysters have not been on the specials menu lately. The prices are more than reasonable and the kitchen usually gets the order to...

Tourist trap! Good food over priced food and drinks. Great service and very long waits. Dessert was Twelve dollars and not worth it.

We went on a Friday night and decided to sit at the bar. The bartender was absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of work she had to do and had little to no help - there was some guy at the end of the bar "helping" her by slowly taking glasses out of the dishwasher, but didn't help at all when...

Need a close place to eat near the Somerville theater and fast. The veggie burger was really good, toasted bun with greens and came with homemade chips. Wasn't overly priced we were in and out within 45mins. Would diffidently go back, it was great that they had an option for someone who doesn't eat meat!

I just happened onto this place in Davis Square and I'm very glad I did. There is a fun and imaginative menu of appetizers, different fries, and burgers. I don't think you can wrong. It's definitely going on my save list and I can't wait to go try something else.

I have have eaten here twice. Both times we had a good time. Lots of burgers to choose from. Pub like atmosphere. Really enjoyed the "Pile" appetizer. We did enjoy the burgers. If you are looking for "hot" spicy, you are not likely to find it. If you are looking for interesting burgers you will.

I don't know where to begin to describe the burgers here other than to say delish, juicy, incredible, unique... yes you can get a burger on a bun with traditional toppings but the UNtraditional is what they are known for. You have to go to the website to understand! For dessert we also got freak frappes that's the name and... More

Went with friends and family while visiting Boston for lunch. The MAC Attack, Green Monsta, 420 Burger, Turkey burger with Stuffing and the special burger with pulled pork, Mac and cheese and bacon were all fantastic!! House made chips are great, baked beans were some of the best I've had. Heard coleslaw was good and had a nice "tang" to... More
