They have a selection of other things besides burgers which I haven't tried but the burgers are just average. if I have to say anything critical about the place is one worker ( a guy) is very annoying you walk in and try to look at the menu and he will dive in and try to make conversation while I...

I really loved this place till last summer. The hamburgers were the best. That changed last year when in an attempt to keep up with lunch rush they started pre cooking the burgers. This created on numerous occasion dried out burgers!! I stopped going. I did return but now order other items on their menu. Salads are great, breakfast are... More

Burgers are always crazy good here. Can't go wrong. I have friends who rarely eat meat and just rave about the burgers. The fries, however, in my opinion, are just gross. Every time I've ordered them, they are a soggy mess. Once we order them to go and after taking the fries out of the bag they still held their... More

I just had the bomb of a burger! It has pastrami, cheese, cucumbers, special sauce! Yum. Not to mention the best hot dog ever, Miss Piggie with bacon, and pulled pork, oh my goodness!! And shrimp tacos delicious!

A must stop if your craving a burger. Lots of creativity. Mac and cheese topped. Pork belly. Fried egg. You name it... all are excellent! They even offer turkey burgers. Milk shakes are old school home made!

I'm happy I live fairly close to this place! The food is great and served with a smile and conversation! This place has a retro feel to it and the shakes are thick and the fries crispy! The burgers are thick and tasty! This time I ordered the BBQ nachos....

This burger joint has BIG burgers and a variety of styles for everyone's taste buds. I've tried about 5 different types but my personal favorite is "Zombie Apocalyse" with bacon, jalapenos, pepperjack cheese, fried egg and BBQ sauce. Others that I like are "Slap Yo Momma", "Gettin' Piggy With It" and "Area 51". They also have excellent Italian Beef sandwiches... More

I had the Skinny B*@&! sandwich on flat bread- it was delicious! I was told the burgers were great as well as the turkey sandwich on flat bread. Very nice owner and place had lots of room as well as drinks. Thumbs up!
