They claim to have the best burgers. I am not a hamburger expert at all but I liked the burger. I think the just recently opened. Try their Johnson City burger with fries and a drink for only $6.00. Try getting that deal at Whataburger....More

This place is sooooooo slow but the food is good. No big complaints except don't go here on your lunch break because you won't have time to eat when you get back.
