The steamed cheeseburgers are really fresh and made with a special cheese made for them. Very delicious and filling. Great fries and really nice staff. A small and cozy place to eat or have them pack it up to take home.

This was my first time having a steamed cheeseburger. I didn't think it would be good but to my surprise it was.
