My boyfriend, aunt and her boyfriend really enjoyed the food. Their chili cheese fries were awesome. Their fries are homemade. The burgers were fun, and I liked the names. You should check them out. They even have a patio for the summertime.

Oh my I had the stuffed black and bleu burger - and it was amazing. Cute quaint setting - with walk up and order and table delivery. The shakes looked amazing too.

To my knowledge, they don't sell turkey burgers. But they do have a veggie burger. And they do sell a turkey sandwich.
