“Best Burger Ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is the best burger my husband and I have ever had. I had the Surf & Turf shrimp stuffed burger with scampi sauce and he had the Power burger stuffed with fresh jalapenos. The uniqueness of stuffed burgers with fresh ingredients was amazing. We had a large group and the burgers are made to order, nothing is done in advance, so you will wait; it took about an hour. We all thought it was worth it. They only have beer and wine. We will probably be disappointed with any other burger we order out now.

Our server was very nice and knowledgeable about all of the ingredients and how every burger is made.

“Nice People, but not the Best Burger unfortunately”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

We had lunch here today. These people are super friendly and nice. Our server was super attentive,but our burgers took forever to come out. We had to ask if something was wrong. We were all starving and we didn't have time to send anything back, but agreed that they were very dry and overcooked. They are generally hard to pick up and eat, but we expected that from the description. The fries were just okay. Nothing special to speak of.

We are huge burger fans and were excited to try this place out after seeing the reviews here. Like I said, the staff was super friendly and the place is clean and cute. Perhaps the cook had a bad day. But we will not be returning on our next trip to this area. Too many other choices. I try to keep my reviews honest.

Thank you so much for visiting Category 3 and for your honest review. We appreciate the compliments on our staff and cleanliness.. so thank you! However, we are very sorry you did not enjoy your food. As you can see from the vast majority of the reviews, and the fact we are #3 out of well over 100 other restaurants, bad food/and or service is not the norm. Being that we are relatively new and have a very small staff, sometimes we are not prepared for the business that a holiday weekend brings. Meaning, absolute exhaustion and running out of ingredients. It was an off-day for our chef, not that that is acceptable or an excuse, but 98.9% of the time, we have only rave reviews and happy customers. And that is our #1 goal!! We sincerely apologize that your food took too long and that the finished product was less than satisfactory, but I assure you had you told your server or the owner you would not have been charged for any of it. That is our policy. We make it right, or we buy it back. We hope you will change your mind, visit us again and let our chef make you the best burger you have ever had.. GUARANTEED! thank you again for your review. -Management

I got the Category 3 with Swiss cheese. Simply amazing. Juicy and the cheese stringed when I took a bite. Great fries too.
