Went here with friends for the first time. Wonderful drinks, service, food, and atmosphere. We had the fire and ice fries to start with, the Georgia tea to drink, and then a burger and a chicken sandwich with avacado and sweet potstoe fries! Anyone with sweet potstoe fries has their stuff together!! Had a blast :)

Great place for burgers and they have all different kinds of French fries toppings. I had the bacon cheese fries and they were delicious. Very friendly staff.

Burger was great. Service was wonderful!! Thanks to the great staff. Not sure of the waitress name, but she was extremely attentive and did not have to wait very long for anything.

We had several different burgers here. All very good. The port wine mushroom burger was excellent. The fries were good, but they could give you more as the portion was smallish. Lots of good beer.

This is a bar and burger joint. Sometimes they have music. There is a wide selection of burgers--I estimate at least 2 dozen--and a variety of fries. For what it is, it is the best.

I can't put into words how awesome our burgers were. Cooked perfectly, so juicy, so much flavor! Even the fries were perfectly cooked - salty and crispy. Plus there was fun 80's music playing. I highly recommend this burger joint for anyone who enjoys a good burger.

Friday night. We walked in with a burger craving, and felt like we opened a door to Narnia... Not what we expected!

The servers were super friendly (as are... More

After a long day touring the big island with my friend who lives here we decided to stop Hilo at the burger place she likes. The place is a dark area, with minimal parking. When we walked in we were greeted and directed towards a table. Everything was fine, bubbly atmosphere with a bar and tv. The first waitress came... More
