Best burger place I think in downtown Lexington. The service is absolutely wonderful. The employees are friendly and it is a nice atmosphere as well

My wife and daughter had the burgers and I had the fish sandwich and all were loved! The friendliness of the owner was a pleasant addition to our meal as well. I personally will go back just to try the burger myself.

Might be the best burger in town. If you go downtown, you gotta stop in there. They have a "fixin's bar" to suit you burger up to the max. Very casual and about 1 block from Rupp Arena. If you go before a UK game...More
