The atmosphere is very dark. You can barely see your food and there is a lot of red lighting. Tattooed people and mohawks but don't let that dissuade you. Just walk to the back to the order window and get a burger - you will not regret it!! Huge juicy burgers cooked to perfection!!! And the fries were awesome too. A wonderful experience.

Wow, the hamburgers here! Best burger I've had in years (the buffalo burger). I don't get all the people that are down on this place. So you have to go to a window to order your food... big deal. You would do that almost any burger joint, and the burgers here are way better. Great music on the jukebox, kind of sketchy bathrooms. Really great courtyard in the back with a Mesoamerica theme and a nice little fountain. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Yes it's dark and yes you order at a window in the kitchen. So what. This was one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. Three quarter pound burger perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked and perfectly topped with roasted Serrano chiles, jalapeno jack cheese and cilantro mayo. Brilliant.

Music run by a customer driven juke box was eclectic and loud. Strange little place service wise. No service at the table; you had to go up and order at a window and then pick it up when your name was called. You also had to line up at the bar to get a drink.

The burgers were good; in fact, my fiancee claims it (the Pitts-Burger) is the best burger she had ever eaten. My Buffalo Burger smelled great and tasted good - nice and moist and spicy. Fries were mediocre. Prices were reasonable and the burgers big. She'd go back; I wouldn't bother.

This is a place for the weird-o's. The décor is what I'd expect the devil's kitchen or dining room to look like; very dark with evil-looking faces painted into the walls with a slight hint of violence and s&m. 8 of us went to this place based on the recommendation of a local. They stated "best burgers in town". I would 100% disagree. They were edible but only just. Nothing special, but very greasy which can cause adverse gastro-intestinal issues (read: go straight to the toilet after leaving and stay there till the burger has made its proper exit). There isn't table service, get your drinks at the bar from someone who may or may not smile then proceed to the rear of the restaurant to order your burger from the kitchen dictator. Bottom line: won't be back and don't say I didn't warn you!
