Reviewed 25 August 2017

Ate here yesterday for the first time. Was a tad bit concerned upon arrival due to the fact that there were only two couples eating there. We were greeted by a polite young lady who was manning both the grill and the cash register... yep she was indeed "working her buns off.."

We ordered two of the large (8 oz) burgers on wheat buns. We ordered them well done and they came out just perfect. Well done but not burnt. The quality of the meat was very good. We both added cheese which was good as well. The bacon on mine was also very tasty. The buns are served grilled but "naked" and you are encouraged to a make a run over to their "salad and fixins" bar. Nice touch for sure.

We both also ordered fries but won't do so on our next visit. And YES there will be a next visit for sure. The fries were not greasy but they were just average and more bland tasting to us. We noticed a few orders of onion rings that came out and they looked real tasty so we will give them a try on the next visit.

Also they show numerous "flavored teas" on their website. However on our visit there were only four available along with three different syrups that could be added to their regular tea.

All in all it was a very good first visit and we will be visiting again!

We stopped here when we were visiting my family in Lubbock. The burgers were good and the salad was also great! We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.

After reading reviews I was surprised the Burger wasn't anything special. Just a Burger. Not much difference in a DQ or Sonic. Service was ok. Cute friendly girl working counter. But Definitely will try something else next time.

I hadn't been here for probably a decade...because it wasn't great the first time. Long story, but I went back recently. The burger was "OK" - they didn't offer mushrooms, but did have lots of condiments - onions pickles, and so on. I ordered onion rings and they were the worst I ever had. Not hot, the breading was tasteless, and they were just not good. With Red Robin and Blue Sky and so many other good places for a hamburger, I'm not at all sure why some people gave this restaurant such a good rating. My meal took more than twenty minutes to be ready.
