Our first visit and it was great. The menu is massive and I didn't know where to start, thankfully the server explained everything.

This is not a bad restaurant but if you are just a little hungry, avoid the Works as their hamburgers are so big, you almost have to cut with a knife in order to get it in your mouth. It is also quite expensive for a burger joint. I personally do not like it.

For anyone enjoying burgers this place is amazing. There are plenty of options for anyone, and I particularly like how its possible to have beef, elk, chicken, or mushroom patties suitable for anyone with specific diet.

Before I became vegetarian I went here all the time to eat their burger with pear and brie but my friends told me that their veggie burger is amazing too just beware if you're vegan because their buns have egg in them so order the flat bread instead

This was quite an experience to say the least. There was almost an unlimited selection of burgers you could have made from beef to chicken and beyond The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food did not disappoint and was a plethora of flavour. I would not hesitate to come back in the future and try... More
