We stopped in for dinner, just a couple of burgers. They were huge! and very tasty. The cheese triangles were also very good.

I always enjoy whatever I order at The Assembly. Love the Bionic Burger plus a lot of other items on the menu. Been there a lot because it's literally 2 miles from the house. Nice casual atmosphere.
