We had the best experience here! We sat on the patio even though it was a little chilly. Our waiter Alex was so wonderful and brought us a few blankets. Drinks were great! We were just passing through but wish we could have stayed longer.

Great little burger joint downtown. They have many different burgers to try, and a great beer menu. Outside tables are always fun as is the fried oreo dessert.

Don't leave without the fried oreos. May as well double up the first time as you'll want another anyway. My health nut wife even wanted another:)
