First time to one of these. My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised. We both ordered the black/blue burger. Daaaaaannggg and hooooweee. They were decent and righteous. Would've preferred medium rare on mine. Had no intention of eating it all but couldn't help ourselves. Would have given it 5 stars but the interior needs some serious maintenance.

The place has gone downhill since our last visit a few years back. The burger was mediocre, a bit tough and not much flavor. Our potato soup had uncooked potatoes in it. Quality is no longer a virtue here. The interior needs a remodel badly, very dated and grubby. Never again.

Last time I ate here was years ago. On this trip, due to the job I was on, this was the only place I could stop to get something to eat real quick. Get it and go. I got the basic backyard something ( 7.59 Combo I think was the price plus tax). I cannot remember why I have only... More

I loved my salad and my husband liked his burger, and sweet potato tots, but not a single salad dressing to go with my salad. A raspberry vinaigrette would be perfect. If I can remember, I will bring my own next time. I usually don't eat here spur of the moment because I don't have good dressing with me.

A Burger Shop that has great burgers and equally great chicken sandwiches. Their Turkey Burgers are a great alternative to regular burgers. The Hawaiian Chicken sandwiches are GREAT!!!

Good food, good service. This is a good go to for a quick, delicious burger or chicken sandwich. Desserts are pretty good too.

I think that people forget about adding this place onto their 'good eats' place. It's very good and we always have great service. There isn't anything on the menu that our family doesn't like. If you haven't tried it....do! You won't be disappointed!

Stopped in for a quick sandwich. I ordered the blackened chicken club with vinegar waffle fries. The son ordered a bacon cheeseburger I got a cheeseburger with a weird mayo sauce. The help needs training
