Always wanted to try it. Finally had the chance and was disappointed. Pulled pork burger smothered in coleslaw with too much mayo. Had to hunt for the pork. Very little. Great if you really wanted a coleslaw burger. Soggy chips to boot.

Have heard mixed reviews about this place but to us it was awesome! I’ve been to a few “American” style restaurants and this is definitely the best. The food is delish and the portion sizes are huge! We had to take it home with us...More
