We took our kids here on our last visit to Lincoln, and everyone tried something different from the menu. The service was pretty quick, and it is a pretty casual restaurant so it was great for a larger party. Reasonable prices as well.

This place has unique burger combinations with tasty fries. Good comfort food, but nothing fancy. The vegan burger is not worth trying, however.

Walk into a history lesson/hip joint. Learn about Lincoln and stay for a fresh and juicy burger. Also offers a gluten free bun! All of our family enjoyed the burgers. Also, can bring a tub of lincoln logs to your table for an entertainment for all ages.

I love that they offer gluten free buns. The hamburgers are juicy so grab a lot of napkins. The fries are the skinny fries, not my choice, but still tasty. Service is good.

One of the best burgers I've ever eaten. A gourmet burger in a laid back setting. Different condiments than most burger joints. I had the Bounty hunter and my girfriend had the 1809...both were superb. I wish I room for more than one cause the Aphrodite sounded great too!

One of the top three burger places I've visited! It's always busy so be prepared for waiting in line, but the line moves fast. Delicious burgers!
