Great selection across the menu, food for all tastes, but selection of Burgers is particularly extensive. Sweet potato chips are a must. I recommend booking as is a medium sized restaurant that is popular.

This is a really yummy place to try! Their fries are really good, and the burgers show a creative freedom of preparing food. The food portions are very large, and the wait staff is excellent.
