“About as good as burgers can get”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

This a truly unique restaurant. The options for the burgers are things I have not seen anywhere else. Everything is prepared to order, and the sides are way above average also. All natural sodas complete the upscale transition.

The big downside is the price. Dinner for three people was just under $40. So ... when you really want to splurge on a really fantistic burger this is the place.

“A worthy destination for upscale burgers and fries”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Been here probably half a dozen times with my family (and sometimes extended family). This is a solid destination if you are looking for a more upscale interpretation of burgers and fries, but still keeping the family friendliness of a fast food type destination. In other words, burgers with fork and knife. The line always moves along nicely and wait times to get your order in have been reasonable. You can go as "old school" as you like with your burger, or get funkadelic with gourmet entries like eggplant spread, roasted garlic aioli, ahi tuna patties, and goat cheese. In addition to burgers, they also offer chicken sandwiches, salads, and a kids menu. Service is usually pretty punctual - they bring it out to your table. And you can also order from your table if you realize you want more, or want to order desert afterall. Sweet potato fries, as has been written previously, are awesome.

“Great Burgers and sides”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

This new restaurant really is a great concept. The burgers are delicious and the sides are terrific. They have great beer on tap too. I can't recommend this place enough. It is not fancy or romantic, just a great place for burgers, fries, beer, rootbeer floats and family outings.
