Greg Brady is my favorite Burger! Flavors of the beef mixed with the mac n chs goodness! Favorite Burger Ever! Plus the fries with the dipping sauce are amazing! It's their secret dipping sauce but my guess is its some kind of mayo/relish/BBQ sauce/1000 island mixture! Ask for extra sauce, always!

Delicious burgers, friendly staff. Very limited seating... only 1 table inside. Bar seating and tables outside. They give you blankets and have heaters for the outside seating.

I enjoyed my food however I was a little taken back with the size of the establishment. Didn't realize it would be more of a bar than an eatery but still got a burger and it was good as well as sweet potato fries. Our waitress was spot on and that made our experience that much more enjoyable. Overall it... More

There is only one table inside. All others sit at the bar or outside. The selection of beer is absolutely overwhelming. As a matter of fact, the regulars keep cards with tasting notes behind the bar in a file for reference. The only food is burgers and fries. I enjoyed it, but probably will not return. I like more seating... More

Food was amazing, service quick and friendly, and truly unique menu! Only negative was music a little loud, seats were uncomfortable, and very small space.

A nice mix of burgers and Wagyu beef to boot. I had a Jalapeño Popper burger and it was excellent. I dared myself to try the really hot burger with habaneros and a habanero sauce but could only muster the courage to try some of the hot sauce on the side of my Jalapeño Popper burger. Crinkle cut fries, craft... More

This is a very small bar/restaurant with outdoor seating available if the weather is good. Loved the bar area décor, service and beer selection. We were lucky enough to get the table near the front door. Did not eat there but saw some great food, especially burgers being served. If you are lucky to get in you will enjoy. The... More

Burgers were pretty good, but seating not so great if you're looking for a sit down place. Inside is basically just a bar but there is ample seating outdoors. Bathroom was nice and clean so that was a plus. Huge beer selection and interesting ones at that.

This is a go to place if in Harrisonburg! This trendy bar/ restaurant is located in town and about a mile away from JMU University. The burgers are made to order and are the most creative burgers I have ever eaten! This is a well known place to locals and the JMU students. I had the Greg Brady burger which... More

The food we had was fine, but our service wasn't what I would call superb, but she was friendly. Parking wasn't very handy, in fact the restaurant wasn't very easy to find.

Thank Glen S
