It is fast-food, not a restaurant. I came here for the first time with my roommate a few days ago, and it is nothing special. Far better places to eat in the area with a better atmosphere for the same tasting burgers and fries.

They're popping up all over, which isn't a bad thing. Except for the home grill, there's not a place to find a better fast-food burger. And they know how to do fries.

Yes. I am in love with the fries....with the vinegar..... The burgers are so delicious. Cooked to order and on a steaming bun with just the right ingredients. Don't forget to order a root beer. What a meal....
