Went with local friends who said it was an off night. Fried pickles were ok, burgers were ok, fries were good, staff were very friendly.

Three of us visited Wholly Cow the other day. Each of us ordered a burger and we split an order of fries and onion rings. The food is good, but it needs more flavor. I had a burger with double grilled onions, double green chiles,...More

We try to eat gluten free (kids seem to have better behavior when not eating gluten), and Wholly Cow has a gluten free bun. Great! Got burgers and fries all around. Gluten free buns, to me, can run the gamut from cardboard to chalk dust,...More
