Its along the same lines as 5 guys. Given the choice of one or the other I'd go here every time !! The burger I got was absolutely fantastic !!! Enough fries to feed a small village, and that burger was incredible !!!!

Must try it. I️ wish I️ would have found this place sooner. Honestly better than 5 guys even though I️ love them too. Burgers are large and filling and the fries are awesome as well. Don’t be disappointed and try it-

They have great burgers and they aren't stingy with the fries. I've been several times and never been disappointed.

It's a guilty pleasure to eat here. Owner ripped off 5 Guys for their recipes so on the one hand it is a delicious burger and perfect fries, and it is supporting a local business... but the owner is kinda unethical.

Even though the name is odd, the place is amazing! The burgers are the best and it was fast and fun to eat!

We love how the price of the items are affordable. Last time we went I got a chicken wrap which I did not care much for. The food also comes out fast.

My son and I walked in 15 minutes before closing after a long day of travel. I could tell they were cleaning everything up but they took our order with a smile and didn't rush us out. Food is similar to 5 Guys, prices too....More

The food is good but nothing special. Chinese fast food atmosphere. There are 3 better hamburgers within walking distance
