Description: 5 Napkin Burger is an upscale restaurant devoted to the art of the hamburger. The signature is 10 oz of fresh ground chuck topped with rosemary aioli, caramelized onions and melted gruyere on a soft white roll. The full burger lineup includes the all-American Bacon Cheddar, Italian Turkey, Avocado Ranch, Mushroom Bleu, Veggie, Lamb, Tuna, Inside Out, even a Burger Salad. While the burgers may be the headliners, the diverse menu of expertly prepared American classics entice foodies to come back nightly. 5 Napkin is the rare burger restaurant where vegetarians and carnivores are equally at home. Additional temptations include expertly prepared sushi maki rolls, Matzo Ball Soup, Steak Frites and Fish & Chips. The 5 Napkin beverage programs showcases a global selection of 60 wines and 80 beers, 10 signature cocktails, 40 bourbons and a host of decadent milk shakes and floats – all a perfect complement to the cuisine.

We went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Four adults and two young children. The food was good, we all had burgers and fries. Everything we ordered was made correctly and good but certainly not special. The service was sub-par. We must've had a waiter in training b/c two men came to our table, but only one talked to us. Our drinks and food came pretty quickly, but neither waiter came back to check on us while we were eating. Around 15 minutes after our food arrived we got refills on our drinks (without having to ask for them) which was nice but would've been a lot nicer had we gotten them 10 minutes sooner. I would recommend going back if you are in the area and need a bite somewhere other than the Cheesecake Factory or California Pizza Kitchen, but don't make a special trip here.

We sat outside. 3 of us had burgers. We all asked for them to be medium to medium-well. They were most definately well-done and dry. I had the signature burger and that "special" sauce was just mayonnaise. We did sit outside because the weather was beautiful.

We sat outside and enjoyed their signature burger as well as great grilled chicken tacos. Prices were moderate for what we ordered and the service was a little pokey but overall we'd go again.
