This is a must stop every time I visit. The burgers are worth the drive from Memphis. The place is clean, there's plenty of parking, and the staff is very friendly. We even had a two year old with us, and he enjoyed the French fries. We went early on a Saturday to beat the lunch rush. They were a... More

Great burgers and fries. Amazing sweet tea and the atmosphere is awesome. One of the coolest burger joints I have ever visited. The only thing better than to food is the service. Southern hospitality at its best.

If your looking for something fancy DO NOT go here. This is a very laid back burger joint. They offer unusual toppings such as Mac and cheese, pimento, peanut butter. They also have chicken sandwiches, salads, and a few fish plates. Gravy fries were delicious! Prices were very reasonable.

The look of the place when we first came in was very promising, and the service was very good, but the food was nothing special. The menu had alot of promise, but our burgers tasted like any others from a chain restaurant. The macaroni and cheese burger was made with what tasted like Kraft boxed mac and cheese.

Took in-laws. He liked it ok - a bit surprising; she turned up her nose - pretty typical. (They WILL NOT do fast food, and dislike most chains.) We love the burgers and try to go to one of their locations every time we're in MB. It is seriously nothing fancy!

Don't let the funky turn you off. This is the place to get a "great" burger. We had an open face with gravey, mushroom Swiss, and house cheeseburgers. All were well prepared, fresh, and delicious. Service was prompt and friendly and your state license plate is there. We will all definitely go back when we are in the area cause... More
