This was a friendly place, and I had first considered the Cubano but that had too much on it for my hunger level. Then I saw the Love Stinks Burger. Loaded with such amazing toppings, including candied bacon and garlic galore. This was a sublime...More

Our first time, and we will be back to try more burgers. Husband had the fattie burger and I had the campfire burger. Both were fantastic! It was hard to decide- all the choices sounded delicious. Great atmosphere and service- our server was very helpful.

If you are looking for a unique burger experience this is the place for you. They are well known for their glazed bacon and wacky bun substitutions. Instead of a bun how about glazed donuts, or maybe two grilled cheese?
