“Greasy spoon right in the heart of the city”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The Wallyburger (a burger with peanut butter + bacon) is the best in the city and is also an amazing value. Great fries as well. I also hear good things about the perogies and burritos but I can't convince myself not to get a burger every time. Tasty milkshakes, one milkshake order is enough for two people, I would just avoid the banana flavour. Unfortunately no VISA/debit transactions and the crowd later at night can be a bit excessive.

“As good as everyone says.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Had to check this place out after seeing it on You Gotta Eat Here. We recently moved into the London area and thought why not. The food was outstanding. The prices were excellent for the amount of food you got. Now the service was just okay. The guy that served us didn't seem like he was too happy to be there. There were not many people in the place at the time. He took our order, brought, our drinks and food then any time we need something we had to go see him and trust me the place is small, he could see us fine from where he stood. Otherwise, it was a great place and I would go back. Worth all the excellent reviews.
