We loved the burgers and the fries. The patties were cooked exactly as we'd ordered and the fries were hot and not too salty. The lemonade was very good and we ended up buying a second round for the drive back to the east side.

Great place to eat if you are in hurry! The fries and sauce are amazing, the burger was pretty good as well. The bun is to die for it’s light and a bit sweet.
