Great little burger joint. Seats not many people, just a counter/bar and a couple tables. I believe it's always open, easy access off the main road with easy parking.

This is a small burger joint, so they do a lot of carry out. The burgers are better than White Castle, in my opinion, because the buns do not get soggy. Get them by the sack, it's worth it!

Overheard a couple of colleagues at the meeting talking about this place. Thought would try it out before heading home. Excellent idea!! Had 4 cheese burgers fries and shake. Chocolate is the only flavour. My mate had the same. Imagine white castles on steroids 🤪...More

Went after hearing rave reviews but ended up a little disappointed. I tried a slider and a Coney island. They were ok. The onion rings were the highlight airy and delicious. Ok if in the area but nothing special.

I stopped in here for the first time the other day. I had heard the burgers were outstanding. They certainly are. I will definitely be back. The chili fries were good too. Even treated myself with a chocolate malt.
