My wife and I stopped here for lunch yesterday, after having been to J. L. Beers a number of times, and this place just gets better on every visit! It's a noisy, crowded Sports Bar and the atmosphere is like A & W on steroids....More

$5.18 for a measly amount of chips and 2oz. of super salty beer cheese???? Are you freaking kidding me? What a complete ripoff! It was not the least bit worth it. When, if I come back, I'll stick with the burgers. $5.18??? What a joke!...More

Decent draft selection and the burgers are really good! The burger was juicy and the Bun was soft and warm. I would return.

If you want a great variety of burgers and beers then you've got to eat here. Large portions and frosty beverages are worth the price. Peanut butter on your burger? Yup, you should try it once. Everything is made fresh and fast.
