This used to be a very affordable hangout for students and office workers. Under new management it's gone upscale, but the food is delicious and well-worth the prices. Order at the counter, get a buzzer that goes off when your food is ready. Great burgers,...More

Great juicy burgers with bacon and fresh greens, red onion, and tomatoes. Homemade potato chips. Large selection of beer, tea, and juices. If you're working in the government offices around the capitol and yearn for a good burger, this is your place.

The staff was very friendly. The pulled pork nachos with serano peppers were fabulous. The fried catfish tacos were amazing and the caramel pumkin mousse with shortbread cookies were the perfect dessert. We hope to go back on our next visit. Its a must try,
