Once you decide that you will try the Local Fries, then you need to figure out which burger to go with them. My two favorites are the Chip Kelly and The Chupacabra.

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.

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!
