We walked from the hospital to get a bite to eat while waiting for a baby. The service was quick, burgers were flavorful but small. If we had known the size of the single versus double we would have the double as the single burger...More

Tried it on a whim. Turned out to be a great pick. Fast. Fresh. Friendly. Juicy. Tasty. Hit the spot. Great $4 burger. We'll be back for more.

Good quick, hot lunch... Better than McDonalds, Jack in the Box, etc.... Service is fast too. It may be hard to find parking, but I've been lucky so far. If you are in a rush at lunch, just call in your order. Yum!

Old-fashioned hamburger/hot dog joint that's been in the neighborhood for ages. Nothing fancy here. I got the hamburger and my husband got the chili cheeseburger, and both were very good. Food is made after the order is placed, so it's not as fast as a...More

They ask if you want everything on burger when it is extra and they are very misleading... Use to be one of my favorite places to eat, never again will I spend money there.. Language barrier seemed to be a problem or the rude worker...More
