This is not a fancy place. They serve excellent burgers, not the giant burgers you find in some burger specialty places, but reasonable sized portions with great toppings. They also have excellent fries. In addition to burgers they have a few other alternatives including hot...More

We heard they have a great burger. It was good, but not great. It’s a paper & plastic place with a few tables and high counter. Seems to do a good share of take out. It has specialty burgers with different toppings. Or you can...More
