“Portion out of proportion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

My wife ordered the footlong hot dog. Be warned if you do they really mean it's over a foot long. The "sliders" are really quarter pound cheeseburgers, or enough food for a table of four, not two. Just an overall fun place with good food and you get good value. Get the sweet potato fries, and save room for a malt.

“Family friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is one of the very few restaurants in Galena that is family friendly. The menu is mostly sandwich type items (burgers, Reuben's etc). No fresh fruit as a side substitution. Salads are available though. What they make is good for the kind of meals they are.

“Great burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Had a great burger. Fun atmosphere, good service. Looks like they have awesome malts and shakes. Family friendly. I would definitely go there again. Probably the best burger in town.

“eh...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

either you like the "durty" theme, or you don't. Food was fine. Service was average, if that. I feel there are better places...... much better places. Bathroom was kinda gross, which never makes me happy....... I'd pass

“Great lunch value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Visited for lunch during crowded Labor Day weekend. The wait wasn't long. The waiting area has toilets as decor to sit on! The waitress was awesome- got us exactly our customized meals ! Shakes were very small portions . Burgers were great . Each of us tried something different from the tombstone to a melt and it was delicious ! Better than Chef Ivo where we lunched the day earlier !
