“Busy and OK burgers”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Their burgers are flat griddle fried like most others, with the juices squeezed out by "crushing" or "smashing" with a special tool that looks like a trowel. Their customizing is not as extensive as Smashburger. They also do not seem to have a gimmick burger like In-and out. The store is clean, the help friendly. They might need to put just a few more burgers on the grill at the lunch rush. In my opinion just adding a chili burger would bring them to a 4 out of 5.

“Fairly Fast Food”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

I went here on the recommendation of friends who ate at a five guys in Atlanta, GA.
They were talked into eating there by their grand daughters. Later they found that five guys believes that paying their employees a living wage with benefits give them an edge. Corporations are usually not that bright so we were happy to purchase food here.

This is our second time here and it has just opened at this location.

The food is really good for a fast food hamburger joint. Way too much food for old folks like us but well worth the stop.

This restaurant isn't the cheapest restaurant in the city by any means but the food is worth the price. Get the little hamburger which is a quarter pounder. The regular hamburger is two quarter pound patties on a single bun. The fries are abundant and excellent. There is other food here but I was here for the burger and fries and they have:
Dogs
Kosher Style Hot Dog
Cheese Dog
Bacon Dog
Bacon Cheese Dog

The web site has a Click here for Nutritional Information link. For those who are interested. To save you time, this is not a diet food restaurant.
They also have:
Sandwiches
Veggie Sandwich
Cheese Veggie Sandwich
Grilled Cheese

Note: Veggie Sandwiches do not contain veggie burger patties.

Fries
Five Guys Style
Cajun Style

It is well worth the stop.
