Stopped her on a short trip to Morgantown WV. Heard the burgers were good-but they were GREAT! What a bargain for $10 including fab fries 🍟 with a special secret dipping sauce. We had the Camaro and a special- carmelized onions, bacon, blue cheese and pickles. Both were excellent. Finished off the meal with a shared chocolate peanut shake. Would... More

I've stayed in Morgantown twice so far, while passing through during holiday travel. Each time, I've stayed in a hotel outside of the downtown area. First time through, Tailpipes was closed when I saw it, but it looked interesting. This time, I made a trip downtown specifically for it, and had my socks knocked off (figuratively). Some places put all... More

We were in Morgantown visiting our granddaughter who is a student at WVU. She has been there many times but this was a first for us. Service was good and the burgers were really good.

Quaint little local jewel. Morgantown is the half-way spot between us (Indiana) and our Navy son (Norfolk, VA). We like to find local eats and this time, we were looking for an All-American meal of burgers and fries. While they were busy, it took a while for us to get our food but worth the wait. Burgers are cooked to... More

Five of us ordered and only four of us received our food that took 30 minutes to prepare. Had to wait another ten minutes to get our missing sandwich. My bacon cheeseburger was missing bacon and found a mushroom which I hate on it. Servers were polite to fix problem that comes from the kitchen. Food was delicious and sauce... More

We're glad our servers were able to get everything figured out, and that you all were able to enjoy the rest of your meal. We have... More

Great service and great burgers. If you are looking for something different, try this out. Not many tables, so I could see it getting crazy during peak hours.

This is a great place to go for a quality burger. The menu is unique in many ways! It is not every day that you are able to order a burger that comes loaded with a fried banana and peanut butter! After the burger and sweet potato fires (my favorite) it all settles well by finishing with one of their... More

Judging by the amount of people in this restaurant, I wouldn't think it would take this long to make 2 burgers and onion rings... Hope the food lives up to its name considering I've had enough time to wait AND post this review. *Yawn* *Belly growl*

Came here with friends for some shakes and fries and loved it! It has a cool vintage vibe with red booths and black and white checkered patterns. We tried their maple bacon shake, chocolate pb shake, and the chocolate pb Nutella shake! Also we managed to scarf down cheese fries and an order of fried green tomatoes. For starters, the... More
