This place cooks the burgers fresh to order if you can figure out what you want. The selection of specialty burgers is incredible! The place is a come in and place your order, fix your drink and seat yourself. The staff is always friendly but you must guide yourself through the process because its a make yourself at home kind...

This is what many affectionately refer to as a "hole in the wall" kind of place -- but WOW! The food and portions more than make up for the lack of chandeliers, wine goblets and fancy china! This is a great gathering place for family, friends, groups, couples, solo dining -- you name it. But bring your appetite -- there... More

Every time I eat here, I struggle with their menu. There are so many delicious choices so I struggle to choose something different. My standby favorite is the O.R.F.D., an awesome sandwich with Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef and smoked cheddar and lots of great toppings. Today I chose the Double Dawg, two foot long wieners with chili, cheese and Fritos... More

I believe that the restaurant is expensive for what you get. Two of use go in there and the bill is more that 20.00 for hamburgers and fries. The orders were incorrect on the last visit.

The menu is extensive and somewhat overwhelming, but I've not been disappointed with anything I've tried. Their burgers are above average and made fresh with fresh toppings, but they seem to cook them all to well-done, even if you request medium. That is the only thing that keeps me from rating them as excellent. It is a local favorite -... More

I saw the rating and I was in the area so I went. The food was good and hit and the service was fast. I enjoyed reading the menu on the wall and figure you could go here 100 times and never have the same thing twice.

I wanted to try The Other Place because of all the great reviews. The place is located in an old strip mall and looks like a dump. I didn't let that scare me off because the food could still be good. I ordered a bacon cheese burger and sweet potato fries and had to wait 45 minutes to get the... More
