“Cute fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

RECOMMENDED: Sorta of a local institution, expect periodic line-ups. It's cute, it's quick and it's good. Prices are reasonable and has beer for those in need. They also serve a very nice vegetarian burger as well.

Note: I'm not a big fan of the truffle fries, namely because truffle oil (meaning truffles in oil) is very $$$. Truffle oil is normally a chemical product using thioether (2,4-dithiapentane). So if you like chemicals.

“Best Value and Burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

It is what it is and nothing more. The best little burger you can imagine along with the best yukon gold fries made. Everything is fresh and inexpensive. The beers available are many and also priced right. It is a no frills place that delivers great food at a great price.

“so different than fast food! glad I don't live close to this place or I'd go there more!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Takes a burger to new definitions. I love the goat cheese burger. The buns , the cheese, every piece is special. The truffle fries and the rootbeer float are just divine and I usually am a vegetarian...

“Wow - Truffle Fries... Not your everyday fast food fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Burgers are good, cheap and fast. Watch the fries come up out of the fryer - and get sprayed with an aerosol bottle filled with truffle oil. Sublime.

Worth the hype - gotta have at least one!

Check out the local brew as well. Pick a beer off the wall - and enjoy that burger!
