Just good simple old fashioned burgers and other foods. Sinful and delicious! Best milkshakes and best variety in town. We have eaten there five or six times without any disappointment, except a minor mixup on an order of fries.

So we started out with sliders and ended with hand made milk shakes! What a nice surprise in downtown Madison. They are open throughout the night so after the pub a slider hits the spot!

What an atmosphere. Every flavor of shake you can imagine. Thick and old fashioned. I think they achieve the variety with shots of sno-cone syrup. Little single, double and triple burgers cooked up on the grill diner style. We didn’t have burgers because we were...More
