Excellent burgers and milkshakes. Both are very large so make sure you go there on an empty stomach! Take a salad with your burger rather than fries..! A pleasant surprise were the tasty fried pickles - would highly recommend these! :-) Service is quick and efficient in this very busy little diner. Would certainly visit again when back in the area.

This is your average burgers and fries place with a huge twist and a big plus. They have great beers both bottled and on tap. Decent wine selection. Their burgers are top notch and offer great local grass fed beef. Additionally they have all sorts of fries to choose from. That's just the burger and fries part, they have a great menu.

The thing that brings me back, over and over, is the hand spun malts. Malts are similar to shakes, don't confuse them. They have shakes too.

Excellent choice for when you need to get your burger on!

We heard a lot about this place. But after waiting a bit for a table, it all seemed to be just another in a big bunch of similar burger places. The burgers were good, the service was good, now the sweet potato fries were better than good, the shakes were good, and the experience was good. But there was really nothing to make us want to go back and wait again. Oh... the prices were good also.

I found this place to be underwhelming, given the rave reviews of it by other posters. The burger was fine but not special. The fries were not terribly good. I didn't get a milkshake, and maybe I missed out because of it. I'm not usually one to whine about price (see my other reviews), but this was not terribly yummy for the money.

Ate here twice when I needed something very fast on a straight line from work to hotel. Not a destination spot but very serviceable for a burger and a beer or glass of wine. Onion rings (can be substituted for fries with burger) are excellent. I had the same waiter both times and he took very good care of me even when it was quite busy (plus he recognized me, always a nice touch).
