Their burgers are fantastic which is why they have won awards for them. If you add a cherry Pepsi, that they add he cherry flavor to your meal becomes even better. Don't add fries because they are usually soggy.

Although everyone knows this is LeBron James favorite burger, most do not know it is a great place to try other things like milk shakes or fried mushroom. My favorite place for watching young people really work hard for tips. So, tip well please

Sweet like candy NO, but a hint of sweet can sometimes go unnoticeable w/ the other condiments. You'll love the burger and you can go to Strickland's for some excellent ice cream.
