The chicken sandwich was good. Very tasty, it was a decent piece of real chicken, not a cheap processed slab. The chili tasted like it came from a can. It was a steaming hot bowl of tasteless paste. I do not recommend the chili, but the sandwiches are good.

This restaurant was just down the street from our hotel so we gave it a try. They weren't very busy, so it was a nice, quiet place to relax and have dinner. The service was great and the food was really good. The hamburgers were especially tasty. Dessert looked good, but we were too full. Maybe next time!

The place looks like any fast food place and the AC is very cold in the summer. But the service was very good and so was there burgers. Very juicy and fresh, They have been around since 1970 started in Libya and the restaurant in Dearborn had been around about 1 year. Try it you won't get disappointed.

I've never had bad food here. I've always had decent service but that's a hit and miss everywhere. They have huge amounts of food and always tasty!

You can tell when a restaurant is serving fresh high quality burgers, and this one definitely does. I really liked the taste of the burger patty itself, it was very juicy and flavorful. The buns were also very fresh and tasty.

Swiss mushroom burger was perfect. my husband had the cheese burger and said his was great too. There is a choice of reg fries, sweet potato fries, waffle fries. Cole... More

The good: fries and onion rings were excellent. My husband also really liked his egg burger The bad: our waiter was way more interested in flirting with the waitress than serving us and we had to keep interrupting this to get any service. My black bean burger, although obviously freshly made, was too spicy to eat. Also note that this... More

We were in town for a festival and stumbled upon this restaurant. I wish we had kept on driving! We ordered two kids meals and my hubby and I split a sandwich. The kids chicken fingers were fried to a meatless crisp, they were not edible. And our sandwich was awful. I am usually not one to complain and in... More

We thought this was just a regular hamburger place but it is more upscale than most. There are many varieties available as well as interesting salads. The Caesar salad was very large and had lots of cheese to enhance the flavours. The other salad was a fattoush, with a lemon juice dressing and fried pita pieces instead of croutons. The... More
