I asked at the REI store where to get a quick lunch nearby and was told about this place. If you are in the mood for a good, regular, not-too-fancy burger and fries, this is a great place. Their service is efficient, the staff is...More

Great burgers with interesting topping choices. Onion rings are good and the tots are amazing. Cute 80s retro decor and music. Service was friendly and quick.

I ordered the 47/53 burger and a small smoothies. The burger was awesome (a little smaller then expected but I was expecting something gigantic) and the smoothie is very good as well. The decoration is also very interesting. Overall a good experience.

My fish and chips were nothing special. I didn't get a burger because burgers are everywhere and their mac and cheese options were minimal and sort of expensive. Decor is fun. The service seemed obligatory. Just okay.
