We (wife and I) shared breakfast here with a good friend. Food was great; service good; and overall just a fun place to have breakfast at a local place when you're in Back Bay from out of town.

I guess if you like the standard greasy fair, a burger slapped between a couple of bland burger buns and some limp lettuce, loud TV and sticky carpet, this is for you. The burger meat was good, which is why I didn't give it 2...More
