We love to eat here when we are visiting JMU. Burgers are delicious, served quickly and are reasonably priced. Lots of different beers on tap too. We like to sit outside but there is usually a wait (dogs are welcome on the patio). Inside seating...More

We had the best experience here! We sat on the patio even though it was a little chilly. Our waiter Alex was so wonderful and brought us a few blankets. Drinks were great! We were just passing through but wish we could have stayed longer.

Only burgers, outside dining. Great burger. They have a menu, but basically you can build your own if it's on any other burger, you can add it to the basic. Not too thick, so you don't have to dislocate your jaw to eat it. Really...More

Great little burger joint downtown. They have many different burgers to try, and a great beer menu. Outside tables are always fun as is the fried oreo dessert.

This place is awesome. We stopped here traveling through to Tennessee. It has really good reviews, and sounded like the place to go. Our servers were awesome. All 3 girls waiting tables waited on us. I can see why you guys have such good reviews!...More

Nothing's overdone, nothings underdone. Took the family here after recommendations and couldn't have been happier. Very basic menu, everyone loved the food (even our picky kids) and a great selection of beer. My burger was perfect. If I lived closer I'd be in trouble.

Don't leave without the fried oreos. May as well double up the first time as you'll want another anyway. My health nut wife even wanted another:)
