We stopped by to drink a beer & watch the football game on TV. The place is small, but offers outside dining too (which probably fills up fast). We sat at the bar and watched, in amazment, as two cooks grilled burgers for hours. They were top notch & we were fascinated just watching them cook. They've got it down... More

I am not a big fan of burgers, but I have to say this place has definitely sold me on theirs.The bums on the burgers were quite thin, warm and soft. The beef patties tasted so fresh and moist. People from the west coast might disagree, but the burgers here were so much better than In & Out's. BTW, you... More

Fabulous! I had the Waygu sliders. My husband had the wings and a Cesare salad. We like wine so we had a choice of Merlot or Chardonnay. This is really a beer joint anyway the Merlot was really quite good and paired okay with the burgers. Great music and great service. You gotta check it out!

Typical college dive bar. Loved it. Brought back memories, not all of them pleasant, but I'm a grownup now and know my limitations. I had the Cowboy Burger, the wife just the regular Cheeseburger. Both were excellent as were the cold beer and the wine. The pièce de résistance were the Fried Oreo's. I could have eaten a 1/2 dozen,... More

If you're looking for fancy, this isn't the one. One the other hand, if you want a good burger and great selection of beers, you should check it out. The owner decided to do one thing and do it well.....he succeeded. Definitely worth a stop and a great place to eat.

If in town, stop by. Friendly, fun and cheap. Great burgers and beer. Extremely small indoor eating area. More tables outside.

This is a great little burger joint that has outside seating. That is great for summer days to sit outside, eat a great burger, and watch the sights of Harrisonburg

Made a point to stop here while driving down I-81 the other day. Boy, was I glad I did. The place is small--only a long bar and one table inside. There were a few tables outside, though. Many different beers available, and burgers of course. My dad opted for a regular cheeseburger, but I had the "Greg Brady." It was... More
