very good hamburgers,especially on the sliders which consisted of three good size buns and a side of their very good French fries. This inexpensive meal was enough for 2 people to share.If you want, you can take your burger next door to the "Hoppy" pub for a good selection of beer and music by local bands.

Used TA to choose this bar and grill. A short wait before being seated. Pub atmosphere with marginal service. The menu is small and populated with burgers. We had salad and burgers. You can choose onions, cheese and both came with fries.

My wife and I have been eating here for a couple years and I have never gotten around to reviewing and I really feel obligated as the food is so consistently great. We frequently the Que Cabron (Taco Salad) and it's wonderful. The atosmphere is great, always busy, bustling, lots of diners, lots of families. It really feels like eating... More

Great yummy burgers but a little bit pricey. You can also go next door to Hoppy Brewer and get beer to have with your burger!

This is a small local place in Gresham. The burgers are excellent. The garlic fries are definitely worth a try. The prices are mid-range and the atmosphere is very nice. This restaurant sits right next to the Hoppy Brew (also an excellent stop for beer). The revitalized old downtown Gresham gets better everyday.
