Probably best burger I’ve had in a very long time. Crazy good. I got paleo and added gluten free bun. I cannot wait to travel to gaslight district again. Wow.

This place has such healthy and delicious options for "burgers". Also the portions are a good size! The staff was friendly and very helpful despite being busy! Parking is sometimes an issue but normally you can get a parking spot within a few blocks! Anyway...it's worth the trouble!!!More

I ordered the vegan burger. It was very good and filling. The onion rings were crispy but really greasy. Staff members were very friendly!

The menu and the ingredients are simple but the quality is above and beyond. You can tell it's grass-fed and cooked to perfection! One of the best burgers I had despite the fact it's a chain!

Super friendly and helpful staff. Nice clean place. I tried the 1/3 lb Lounge Burger combo with 1/2 (fries) and 1/2 (onion rings). The food was fresh and served quick.

Being alone awaiting my flight home the following day I didn't really fancy a full restaurant experience as it's just not the same on your own. That's why I opted for a more informal burger style place, like most where you order at the counter,...unlike most fast foods they give you a number a bring to your table. The menu was a little confusing but I managed to work it out, however when I asked for the mix of onion rings and fries I just ended up with fries. When it was brought out and placed in front of me I said "I asked for both onion rings and fries?" The server just pointed at my receipt and said "it says just fries on there" which wasn't helpful. I was also surprised that I wasn't asked what size burger I wanted because there are two options I suppose being in a foreign country I didn't ask as felt bit silly. I wouldn't mind but I bunged then a couple dollars tip in their tip jar on the counter which considering they are offering table service was more than enough. I'd say it was t any better than a bog standard fast food jointMore

My experience here was an excellent one. The staff was friendly. The burger was excellent. The onion rings were some of the best I have ever had. They also have a decent selection of other menu items. There are multiple locations and this was the...first location I have tried, but definitely won't be the last location visit. I definitely recommend this place.More

This is an order at the counter and then they bring it to your table type place. The process works efficiently and within minutes you have your meal. In our case the crispy chicken and fried cod options. Both were tasty and satisfying. Also, my...wife really liked the fries, but I was a little disappointed in the onion rings, which were tad overdone.More

We were looking for a quick lunch and very convenient downtown location. We both ate a Husky burger with no bun, conveniently wrapped in lettuce. There was a bit of a long line, but service was quick and friendly. We were able to find a...spot to eat outside which was nice.More
