Always try to go when I'm in town. Never disappoints. Not a ton of choices, but everything they do, they do well. You can't go wrong on anything in the menu.

Good service dispite how loud this place is but hey, it's that popular. Cashier was friendly and the tri tip sandwich was very tender and good. They could marinate the tri tip but that's me being picky. Great burgers too.
