“Great burger place for Chapel Hill!!”

My only complaint, wish the space was twice as big! :)
Burger was fresh, cooked just right, juicy! None of the unnecessary seasonings that a good burger doesn't need. The rosemary (crinkle cut, my fav) and sweet potato fries were delicious!!!
Can't wait to try the milkshakes!!
Al is a super nice guy and like that he talks with the customers and gets their feedback!
Give them a try!

I can't understand all of the rave reviews of this place on Trip Advisor. It's a cute little place and the owner is a very nice guy. But a burger joint stands or falls on the strength of its burgers and Al's burgers are good, at best. The burgers lack the meaty and juicy essence that makes a good burger. You can get a much better burger in Chapel Hill at any of the following places: Buns, Sandwhich, Bin 54, Kitchen. If you're willing to travel to Durham, Only Burger and Bull City Burger and Brew should do the trick.

Located on Franklin Street. Eat outside or take it home. Burgers and crispy crinkle fries. Absolutely the very best...anywhere.

We hadn't been before and really liked. kids got the smaller burgers and ate them up - -good size. Shakes were very good with Maple View Ice Cream. Wife had the veggie burger which was incredibly good. I had the Paco - - spicy, still feeling the jalapenos on my lips, but i'd go back. seating is limited - - make others feel welcome to sit with you if there is room at your table....don't be a jerk. can imagine going back again and again and again. People working here were also very very nice.
