Had high hopes, been living in Detroit for few years and finally took the time to stop here for a bite. Looking at the menu, I thought it was pretty expensive. Usually you are throwing down over $10 for a burger or sandwich, it usually...More

After a day in the city we stopped for a couple beers and fries for a snack. They have the best fries and many different flavors to choose from. I'm not a risk taker so I just went for the salt & pepper fries. One...More

Very good burgers with several choices of toppings. Good selection of beer on tap. Parking on street or in lot behind. Outside patio and downstairs space for a crowd. Very good service, not pushy. Nice bar area and booths along windows.

We finally stopped in on a day trip to Detroit and ate lunch. Our server was really nice and friendly and our food was fast and very good. A great selection of beers to accompany your choice. We will be back.

We went here for a late lunch on a weekday and had a great lunch - tater tots to share, a bblt for me and a reuben for my partner. All were delish. Service was superb!

A neighborhood reborn with great food. Indoor/outdoor seating in a relaxed atmosphere. Burgers, shakes & fries, how can you go wrong.
