“Consistant and Delicious”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Screw all the fast food chains & their grinning, paper hats!!! This place grills my burger over a mesquite fire inches away from me every time! I've been going here for 10+ years & will continue to frequent it forever. I'll haunt it if I have to just for some of their amazing fries dipped in their ranch....you add your own toppings after moving down a "soup-nazi" like line and sit on crates at copper tables. Nothin' more authentic than that smack dab in the middle of a campus town!!!! I love it & I really highly recommend it. On top of their years of success & service, they didn't sell out like ALL the other businesses around them that were demolished into parking lots, so that just adds respect to respect. Please get in line, but bring bills 'cause this place is cash only!!! (or use the on-site ATM) Enjoy!

“No better burgers anywhere else in Phoenix metro area”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great burgers grilled right in front of you. Small, medium, or large. Plenty of options for toppings and the fried zucchini was fantastic. Fixin's bar to finish your burger out the way that you want it.

CASH ONLY but they do have an ATM inside.

“Great food across the street from ASU”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

The food was very delicious. You order the food at the counter and then wait for them to cook it so it's nice hot fresh food. This is a great place for a college hang out and watch an ASU game. Not many tables and the benches are hard but what do you expect from a college hangout place.

“Great Chicken Burgers”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The food is made to order. We have the chicken burgers which are really great. We go during the summer when the ASU traffic and crowds are minimal.

“Best Burger in Town”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

If you've ever driven past this place, you probably did so without batting an eye. The outside looks like a run down barn, and being able to park presents a challenge if and when you do decide to turn in. But for those lucky enough to do so, it truly is a hidden treasure amongst the never ending strips malls that litter Tempe. As soon as you step inside you realize that the outside decor is just as lovely as the inside, but dont let that stop you. The burgers are cooked on the grill right in front of you, and as you wait (you must wait for it to be cooked) you cant help but get your juices flowing. They allow you to pick whatever condiments you like at the condiment bar in the center, and you can go as crazy as you choose. They have multiple options to pick from, burger wise, but a sure fire winner is always the double big one. It is very filling, and once you load up the toppings, you'll be glad the side of fries you ordered was so small. This is a cash only place, but they make it easy by providing you with an ATM inside. Sit back and enjoy the "ambiance" because places like this are unfortunately dying slowly around town.
