“Not a wide variety if you're not a burger lover”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Very casual place. I ordered nachos - it was pretty good but nothing to rave about. Wouldn't be missing anything if I never go here again.

“Old school burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is the best burger in Texas. All the food is great, our party of six all agreed best burger ever. the onion rings very good, little slow no service, live music with open sides of the building in Arlington. the place is packed with people. Building is a old old garage so don't come in your Sunday best. Bar and live music very loud. But you get a great burger.

“Old School Hamburgers with Live Music and Texas Heat. 8 out of 10.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ate outside under the tree with family and friends Labor Day weekend. Live music pumping out of the open sides of the building in downtown Arlington. We sat at a big bench just barely in reach of the misters spraying cool water from the edge of the awning and it was just right. Place was full at 7 on a Sunday night until the band shutdown in a couple hours when things thinned out but plenty of seating outside and you can hear the music fine. Burgers and sides are big, tasty and full of the grease you came here for. Don't review this place and sniff at the plastic fork dispenser and paper towel napkins because thats the whole point. The fat runs down your arms and the beer is ice cold. Burger joint that's an 8 on a scale of 10.

“NO SERVICE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We waited 30 minutes for Service (two waitstaff walked by never stop) so we left. We won't be back. Might be a good place to go to if you like local band and like to drink.
