There is no doubt that the burgers are very good because of the freshly ground meat and the fries just average, but the prices are outrageous even for the meat quality. I had a Mushroom Burger and my wife had a Patty melt. We could...More

My wife and I visited because of the feature on 3D. Although the burger and Service were great, it was way over priced. Atmosphere and experience was neat, but two burgers, 1 order of fries and two beers for 50 bucks? Hmmmm....
