Hamburgers are fantastic! Well prepared and juicy! Sandwiches are great, too! Has a good selection of food. Friendly staff, great place for lunch. It is across the street from Walgreens, KFC, and James Campbell Kroger. Parking area is a bit small, but a lot of...More

This place gets a lot of hype around town. But I found it very much overrated. When I got my burger it had blood under it on the paper they placed it on. The place looks dirty. And staff wasn't helpful at all.

I've read recently there is another burger place in town that's winning awards-well, they don't even compare to Bypass! Hands down the best! All of their appetizers are outstanding, and the "deli" atmosphere is so unique!

This is a local establishment that has been around for a while and still provides excellent food and excellent atmosphere. This is the place for a cheeseburger and fries. They are the best. The chef hand pats out each burger from fresh ground chuck and...More

Had a great lunch here with a friend. Burgers were very good and the service was good as well. We had nothing to complain about and found it to be very well worth the money.

Stopped here for lunch one day, was not disappointed! Good, greasy burgers and the curly fries were good as well! My mom had the reuben sandwich and it was good. Enjoyed all of the local news articles on the walls throughout the joint. Cool little...More

This is a local favorite established in 1966. A place to have a great burger, reuben, club or sandwich. Voted best burger of maury county many years. Its more than a burger joint, its a place to see friendly faces in a friendly atmosphere. It is an older place but is kept very clean and holds a health inspection grade of 100.
