“Great Burger”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Burger is special and worth a taste. Service is excellent too. Not the kind of service you would expect in a fast food environment.

“Just keeps getting better...”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This place is simply the best. The menu offers a wide variety of great fresh made food, Whether it's a burger, a salad, or the sesame seared tuna everything I have tried has been outstanding! It is family run by a family that truly cares and it shows in the super friendly service, reasonable prices, and great food.

If you have room, the fresh made desserts are out of this world! But it's tough to fit it in after a meal here so you might have to take it to go.

“Memorial Day Dinner”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Amazingly the first three places we tried were closed but driving down Cordova St we found this place open. I suspect it is very good for burgers but they are not on my doctor's recommended list so we split a rack of ribs. The service was good and the salad was arrived quickly, the rack was lukewarm and possibly re-heated and my grilled vegetables came some time after. The Key Lime pie was okay but I've had better on this trip.

“Just Go!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

The food was incredible. There is something for just about everyone. They specialize in burgers and my husband was impressed. I opted for the salad which was worth it. If you are looking for a great meal with no frills, go! You will not be disappointed.

“BURGERS”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

The burgers here are amazing. I am not a big beef eater myself, yet I would have to say that this would make me want to eat a burger once a day. The lady that was in charge was very helpful in helping me select the perfect burger, she was very enthusiastic. The chips that were also served with the burger were lush.
I would definitely recommend having a burger or two here if you are passing by.
