Really good food and excellent shakes. Downtown location is great for dinner and drinks. Decoration is really original and they have fantastic burgers. Cheese fries are the best!

I had the "there coming to get you barbara" which is two grilled cheese as buns and bacon with two patties. WOW my mouth is already watering. Its a fun little environment and the burgers are absolutely amazing. Also had a cinnamon toast crunch shake which was to die for.

We saw this restaurant on a food show and decided to give it a try! The wait was a little longer than I would have expected, but the food was most definitely worth the wait! Try the Trailer Trash Burger, it was awesome!

Went here with some friends one night while visiting the area. The menu is printed on the back of a fake zombie newspaper which was pretty cool. There burgers are each named after a perticular zombie movie. They also have alcoholic and non alcoholic shakes that have cereal ingredients in them which is a fantastic idea and they taste great....

Went with friends and to start it was confusing of where to go to get seated.

Waited extreme long time for our food, no apologies given. My burger was barely warm and definitely nothing special. The... More

Zombie burger has the best blend of beef in their burgers. Always good food and good service. I eat there for business lunches atleast twice a month. Everyone that goes with me enjoys the burgers as much as I do. Stop here and you won't be disappointed!!!
