I had the olive burger which was a lot better than Anchor Bar's, but as far as price is concerned, you get a better quality burger for half the price at Anchor. I'd love to try the breakfast soon.

The place is a destination for a great meal at a great price. I had breakfast there a couple months ago and lunch this past weekend. They offer generous portions in addition to the awesome value and great food. They're locally famous for their burgers but they offer some variety that I am unable to evaluate. Once I find a...

Loved this place! Their Cream Cheese, green olive burger was very tasty! French fries were home made. Staff was very friendly. In a little strip mall on Piedmont. Will definitely return.

My son and I went here for lunch on a whim. The special was 5.99. The special was awesome. Nice big burger with real fries. Burger was great, too many fries to eat. Great place for a burger. Give it a try. Yum

This is billed (by a review on Yelp I saw) as a great, locally-owned alternative to Five Guys. And, I have to agree. It has the atmosphere of a kind of greasy spoon, with a counter immediately across from the grill, and a number of tables lined up against the opposite wall. The staff were friendly and attentive, and checked... More

I've been a few times now, for breakfast, and have always loved the food. I also have friends of very different demographics who eat here all the time. Everyone seems to be welcome and the service matches the food, for sure!
