“Fun burger place!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Good menu but the best thing about this place is the atmosphere! Lots of fun on weekends as they frequently have live bands. You can eat outside or inside. Good bar.

“Aptly Named”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a nice place to stop for a drink on the shaded patio and listen to live music on weekends. The food however, is greasy and overpriced and the service is always slow.

“Good Big Burgers”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in to eat and kill some time before a concert. Ordered a bacon cheeseburger out front and went in the bar/dining area to wait, they buzz you when the food is ready, you add your own condiments from the burger bar, this night they were down to the dregs on tomatoes and onions. Soft drinks, beer, cocktails are all available. Saw a variety of people, singles, couples, families with young children all blending in. Friendly staff, but mostly self serve. Still it a pretty good place and a fair value. My burger and fries, drink came to 10 bucks. I'll be back.

“Try the Angry Burger”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Being from the desert southwest I appreciate the use of chilies and pepper. The Grease Monkey has created an outstanding blend of chili tastes. The huge piece of grilled meat is piled on with pepper jack cheese, a sliced green chili, chipotle sauce and grilled jalapenos. It is one of the most delicious hamburgers I have tasted since leaving El Paso! The restaurant host live entertainment in their open air restaurant, the perfect place to enjoy an summer evening in downtown Arlington

“Great value for a really really good burger.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

The burgers here are delicious. I love the hand cut fries as well. My husband loves the ghost pepper burger and I am a big fan of the portobello burger. I like the dress- it - yourself bar, because I like plenty of veggies on my burger. I like the decor and it is a great addition to the downtown scene.
