“Cool Hangout!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

We were told about this place by locals who thought it was the place to go for a good hamburger experience, and it didn't let us down. Have ended up there 3 times in the past few months, and haven't been disappointed yet. Try the Pizza Burger with fries, or the Pineapple Bond with onion rings (who knew that grilled pineapple on chicken with honey barbecue sauce would taste so yummy?)

Beware that this place is always busy, and can get very loud. Don't go here to have meaningful conversations, but otherwise a great little place to hang out!

Burgers are really good. Great place to meet with friends for a quick meal. Have tried their burger challenge and coldness finish the burger in time, it is huge. Had lots of fun though

“Best homemade buns”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Just dined at the franchise location in Gulfport, Mississippi. Atmosphere is not even close to the Tuscaloosa location. T-Town wins hands down on that front.

Burgers are very good. Lots of selections and twists to change up your average burger. I didn't venture to far off the normal. Patty is a good size and tasty. Bun, I could eat those alone. Fries are good as well with the beer batter. Onion Rings are good as well.

Will go back

“Great buns!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Lots of burger options but the buns are equally delicious! The fries are hot and cooked in a beer batter. Drinks are huge! Parking is a bit difficult in this section of downtown. We went on a rainy, stormy weeknight. The place was filled with students and locals enjoying the food and typical college town bar atmosphere.

“Popular Bama burger joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

We go here to grab a burger while visiting our Bama student. They offer sandwiches, salads and burgers. All are great and huge. The burgers and onion rings are my favorite though. This place is always full of students and locals. It is always busy! The prices are reasonable too . The family that owns this restaurant also owns Glory Bound Gyros which is right next door. We love it too and hit it every visit to Tuscaloosa . You can't go wrong at either place! Great food and service!
