Ordered a Waygu Obi-One hamburger. I was curious to see the difference between a Waygu burger and a regular one, so my husband ordered a similar but regular beef hamburger. There is a difference. The Waygu was definitely small and thinner and was waaaaay over...More

The wide variety of burgers is very impressive. They are delicious. The toppings are good and the fries are very good. Very good service.

The service was very slow and the restaurant was freezing cold! I had a bacon burger (good but cold) and a side of coleslaw was bland. Save yourself a disappointment! We were 3 people, ordered 2 milk shakes and 3 glasses of water. 5 straws!...More
