Great place to cure that burger craving. Sometimes a little poor on the service, but then this is not really a sit down restaurant.

My father and I were looking for something different, and I happened to find this Burger Joint location online. The menu looked interesting and we decided to try it. The location itself average and the atmosphere is that of a fast food resturant with and `80's theme which is at least intersting. The burgers, however are very tastey and fresh.... More

We love the burgers and have tried the regular burger, tuna burger, and lamb burger. They are always prepared as ordered and very juicy. The French fries are excellent, too. The restaurant fills up and you may have a slight wait for a table.

The Baileys and cream shake was probably the among the five best milkshakes I've ever had! The burger was top notch rivaling those you might order in a good steakhouse. It was over $30 for two people to dine, but the food was good enough to bring us back.

This place is good for takeout or dining in. Fun for groups. My favorite is the regular beef burger w mojo sauce plus an order of fries. They have huge onion rings and a tuna burger that's good, too. One nitpick--GPS seems to have a tough time giving correct directions. I think the street address and business address are different.

Spouse had the lunch special - regular burgers and firies which she liked. I got the "Greek Burger" which was okay - nothing exceptional. Good basic food, but nothing terribly exceptional.

Came with the family, two kids two adults. The burgers were good, but not the best I've had. They were seriously overpriced as well...which was disappointing. The onion rings saved them and left our opinion relatively high.

If you are looking for something light, this is not really your place. If you want a substantial burger with innovative toppings and good sides than you are all set! There is usually a burger of the month as well as tuna, lamb and lobster (in season). The onion rings and sweet potato fries are wonderful. If you have room... More

We don't have these burger places in Milwaukee...I loved it. Great options including corn on the cob! Friendly staff and good food - what more can a girl ask for after a long day of being a tourist?
