Handy if staying nearby, but I wouldn't come here if I was staying in the town. The atmosphere and staff are nice but food very expensive and although the burger I had was tasty, the meat was very hard. Burger with no chips 164 nok...More

When in town for a burger this place is a must. Especially the pretzel bread was a new and delicious surprise. Easy dining after a visit to the local brewery for a tasting experience. You can’t go wrong with this burger place.
