Typical Tex Mex Restaurant, but with a good Twist. I usually go to this restaurant when I want a good burger cooked to perfection. Nice place trying to bring back the 50's other customers could be attracted if the owner went really deep on this. Service is nice and fast, and more they do not try to rip off you... More

Grab a pulled monster burger. You won't regret it. Great food great prices with friendly service. Also...try the micro brewery beer. Not the micheal buble beer as one of our party misheard. Bit off the beaten track but well worth the time finding. The burrito also looked amazing too. Definitely worth a visit.

We have been in this restaurant several times before, because of the good food. Today we went into the restaurant with my daughters. There were two waiters in the restaurant and they totally ignored us. They were both wondering around, but even afrer 20 minutes neither of them came to take our order. So we stud up and left the...

Dear Katailn! We do apologize for your negative experience in our restaurant. Unfortunately, our waiters were working on a technical problem in relation with the beer taps after you arrived and took seats. So that is why they greeted you at your table a bit later than as usual. At the same time, we are very happy that you are... More

After following the trip advisor map we realised we were going in the complete wrong direction. Finally after stealing someone's wifi we got on course. The service was great, quick and friendly. I only recently started eating chicken but they were really helpful and swapped the bacon for cheese in the crispy Kentucky burger. My fella had the New Yorker... More

Visited this restaurant on our trip to Budapest. We ordered a pulled pork sandwich and a medium rare dallas burger. The burgers are cooked to perfection and served in decent size portion. We've thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend this place to any burgert enthusiasts out there.

We have returned to their new joint downtown and went for the pulled pork again. I think this is the most exclusive meal they have there, their burgers are nice too but nothing to write home about. Can not say the same about the pulled pork sandwiches : THEY ROCK! They are amazing! The coleslaw and fries are nice, too.... More
