Playground is great for kid's. Fries are good, liked them better than the onion rings. Had two mini burgers which is a great way to try different burgers. Had the Allandale(like better) and Travis heights.

I had the Travis Heights burger. The meat was a little too done and a little dry. The bun was good. I didn't know that I had to ask for condiments and lettuce and tomato to be added. I also thought when they asked if...More

It took forever to get our order. The hamburgers were undercooked. Thank goodness for Amy's ice cream playground next door to entertain our kids while we waited. Not a lot of seating.
