I have taken my small family to this little hole in the wall for their burgers when I want something special. I believe their burgers to be the best in S.E. AND Mid-Michigan; end of discussion!

The Torch is located behind main street (Saginaw) in famous Buckham Alley. The place is small but the food is excellent as well as quick o arrive. This is also a fun place to take people because no one knows where you are leading them!...More

Had a burger (what their claim to fame is). Cooked exactly as ordered. Ordered 1/2 order of onion rings, Others ordered 1/2 order of fries. 1/2 order was enough and tasted very good. The service was good, The prices were reasonable.

Me and my boyfriend stopped in here last week. It was my first time there. Bar burger and a beer. Nothing special and it's quite a tiny crowded pub.
