The burgers and fries are standard fare, but the chocolate shakes are some of the best around. I would recommend Slows BBQ across the street for lunch/dinner and then running here for a shake.

Dinner on the way to catch a train to Chicago. Had heard lots of great things about this place and it was all true. Excellent bacon burger and huge side of fries. Burger cooked as ordered. All ingredients fresh and well-presented.

Great meal. There are no better burgers and loaded tots anywhere in Detroit. The staff is friendly and attentive. Well worth the wait to be seated.

Average burgers at a high end price. Cheese sauce on the fries are a total miss. Great beer selection
