“Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Wait times can be long, but worth it. If you are in a hurry that have food to go. It's fun to come here on Sundays to watch The Walking Dead. Food is always good. The shakes are really good, spikes or not. They also have a great selection of drinks available. A great place to meet up with friends.

“Unique Burgers”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Our experience was ok. We were hungry when we walked in. We waited for an hour to be seated. Probably another 25 minutes for the food. The food was good. Portions were great. Friendly service. I would plan to go again, but make sure you allow plenty of time. Maybe slip in the TO GO line and order food to go?

“Fun, Quick, Freaky Burgers and Drinks”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

No bones about it - this is a burger joint. Burgers, Fries, bar food. But also a fun Zombie theme and a demented mind in the kitchen and behind the bar, willing to serve up artery-clogging, liver-pickling creations which are photo-worthy for their calorie-counts alone. Imagine, for instance, a double-bacon-cheddar cheese-mac &cheese burger sandwiched between two patties of fried Mac & Cheese instead of a bun. Have fun, but get a to-go box for your next 2 lunches.

“Burgers taken to a whole new level!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Try a spiked wedding cake milk shake! and the burger of the week! Not into burgers? Substitute the burger for grilled chicken or Portobello mushroom instead! Don't shy away because of the long line they are fast and have service down to a science! GREAT people, great locale. Try the Ray Gun...one of my favs!
