It's dirty. Go to a fast food chain instead. The burgers were like lumps of coal. Too many other options in the area to justify going back to this place - ever.

The hamburgers tastes kind of bland, the place could use a good scrubbing - everything just had a dirty worn out look to it. The only 2 reasons that it received a 3 rating is because they carry Pepsi products, and the fries weren't bad.

My son and I stopped by here on a trip to Lexington. If we're in the area this is our place for a quick pick me up. The Burger's are a great deal and the Waffle fries are delicious.

The burger was good and the salad and fries were good. Service was friendly and restaurant was clean. I gave it only four stars however, because the women's bathroom had broken locks on the doors and the roll of paper towels were on top of the dispenser instead of in it. Therefore you had to turn the roll with wet... More

Everyone ordered something different and we all loved what we ordered. Everything was done to perfection. I loved the decor. It... More

Not only did I have to wait over 15 minutes for my meal, but I had to listen to the cashier hack and cough the entire time. There's no excuse for this. Management, you had a casual conversation with this employee during this time. I was the only customer in the building from the time I ordered to the time... More

First, we felt the meal was overpriced, despite that the portions were fairly large. Agreeing with another poster, the burgers were basically tasteless pre-fab frozen patties. We also ordered the waffle fries which were OK. The overall feel of the place was that it was less than clean. We came in well after the lunch rush and the tables were... More
