“A good fit for an enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

The Flip Side is one of three restaurants by the same owner. Ruka's Table is a more upscale place, with good music, good food, and great wine. The Highlands Smokehouse is a great BBQ place, and more of a family place, with a casual feel.

The Flip Side is a Burger Joint. And I mean that in the best way.

I can't say their burgers are the best I have ever had, as I have had some really outstanding ones in my live. But I can say that they are consistently good (praiseworthy in its self), and have a surprising variety of options for them. (My favorite is the "Beelzebub", with not only Jalapeno peppers, but also Habanero peppers, too !)

And their menu is not just limited to burgers. They have a Turkey Reuben that is outstanding. LOTS or seemingly fresh turkey, with just the right amounts of sauce and fixens to compliment the meat, and not overpower it.

And their salads are very good. (Especially the one with the sweet potato !)

The beer collection is fairly wide, including a lot of micro brews that you may not find easily elsewhere.

(My personal opinion is that their wine selection needs work... but that is not what you really expect to get at a burger place. So you can't count off on this. Check back later, as I have a mission to get it worked on... LOL)

The prices are low, for Highlands. And the service is attentive and friendly (Carlea took care of us the last time we were in, and she is great.)

So in short, if you want some good and filling food, this is a great place to consider.

“Awesome burgers”

If you like burgers, this is the place. I tried their signature burger and it was amazing. Well cooked (as requested), service was nice and very affordable!

“Great Food, Friendly Service, in Highlands?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

I love this place, and wish I lived closer. The staff was so accommodating, the beer was cold, and the food was very impressive for a little burger place. Everything was fresh, and made to order. If you want a great meal in Highlands, Go to Flipside.

“Hamburger heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is the place to go if you want to experience burgers, ANY kind of burger. Freshly made and delicious! Buns fall apart and can get kind of messy, but still wonderful. Reasonably priced for Highlands.
