“Could be really great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Huge portions, great combinations, fresh ingredients, unique sauces, etc. Out came this monster burger, yet it wasn't really that great. The patty is more round then flat, it was hard to bite into. The bread to meat to topping ratio was off. It was extremely messy to eat. The regular fries were awful, served cold, like McDonalds only four times more expensive. It was really busy, the staff worked hard, the cleanliness suffered a bit. The noise didn't bother me that much. Could be great they just need to figure it out.

“Lots of food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Went here on a Sunday when it opened at 11 and got food for 6 of us to go. Everyone was happy with their meals. We shared 3 orders of fries. Chatted with the owners while waiting for our food to be ready and they were very nice and pleasant to talk to. The burgers are HUGE!

“Awesome Huge Burgers, A Bit Too Much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Tried this because of the great reviews by friends. When I went I was really craving a Turkey burger but they were out by dinner time and I was a bit disappointed with my chicken patty instead. I like the experience of the large burger but it is very expensive and there is no way you can finish it on its own. The bun is fresh but with all the toppings and hot burger, it really makes the bun soggy and hard to finish. I enjoyed my sweet potato fries but they needed more pepper and it was a bit odd to match them with marshmallow fluff. Would come back again but not my favorite burger place in Northern Virginia.

“Will not return.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Horrible Customer Service. Restaurant is very loud, cramped and DIRTY. It was $45 for 2 adults and 1 kid and the food was mediocre. Cheese Fries were imitation bacon bits and nacho cheese sauce. Owners are really rude and could care less if a customer likes their food or has a pleasant experience.

“One time is enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The store is the definition of uncleanliness. The seating area isn't large but the tables and floor were filthy with food and debris. Took about 15 minutes to get our food, not exactly the notion of fast causal. The burgers were nothing of note, buns were fresh.

Had an interaction with the owner, not friendly and failed the cardinal rule when running a business, customer is always right.

For a family of four, plan on paying north of $40 for the meal. Don't plan on coming back.
