There is something for everyone. I do wish they would bring back the Memphis burger though, I miss it! Good place for casual dining. Great spot for kids. If you go on half-price burger night, it is a killer deal for a family!

One if my top 3 burgers in the area, along with Madra Rua and Smokey's. The burger is fresh and hand ground but is VERY expensive. You could grill a good steak for the price. Excellent service as always
