I love a good cheeseburger but was disappointed when eating at Newts. The bun was not very good and the cheeseburger was as plain as could be. Can they not put lettuce, pickles and tomatoes on the side. It was just meat, bun and very...More

I couldn't finish my shroom burger and onion rings. They were yummy. Super large portions of onion rings cooked perfectly. Buns toasted were a nice touch but the burger itself was just average. Nice server made solo lunch enjoyable.
