If you want a burger that tastes like it came off your backyard grill - try this place. Other options too, but the burgers are my favorite. Order at the counter and they bring food to your table/booth.

Has never eaten at one but was a block from where we were working. Great burger menu with much better quality then a big box fast food restaurant. Great waffle fries, tried the turkey burger that's a pass but the regular burgers were great.

I had tried this place a few times and did not like the leather burgers. I found out the key to success is made to order. I ordered mine fresh med cooked and it was wonderful.

I ate the bacon cheese burger, no ketchup. The burger was good and not too much of the other condiments that it would slide apart while eating it. I also had the seasoned fries and some onion rings both were good and hot.

This is the slowest, most expensive burger joint on earth! Food is good, but worth almost TEN dollars for a small size combo meal?? NOT
