We came for lunch. Saw on four square. Didn’t realize it was such a hot spot. 40 minute wait so we sat at the bar. Sat right away. We had cowboy burgers. Amazing. Can’t wait to go back. Service quick and amazing. Loved it.

We love to eat here when we are visiting JMU. Burgers are delicious, served quickly and are reasonably priced. Lots of different beers on tap too. We like to sit outside but there is usually a wait (dogs are welcome on the patio). Inside seating...More
