Passing through Columbia and was told to eat here. Glad I did. FUN environment. Burgers were fresh and full of flavor. Chips were great...a small, local provider. Pricing was reasonable. Cash ONLY.

Old fashion pool hall that serves wonderful burgers! Bring cash because they don't take plastic. I try to have lunch at Booches every time I visit Columbia.
