Ate here for lunch last week. They have fancy hamburgers with weird toppings, but they are delicious! I try to eat here a couple times a year (it isn't as close to work as it used to be). I love their sweet potato fries. This...More

Not much needed to say on this. The burgers are one of the best I've ever had. Cooked perfectly, juicy and big. I did the build your own and it was scrumptious! Would definitely go back!

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat with my son. We split a cesar salad and burger. Both were great. Cheese fries were good! Service was very friendly and aware.

If burgers are your thing then look no further. Rustic college feel and fun atmosphere. Wait staff are young, friendly, and treat you like they've known you for years. Burgers are their specialty so if you want a variety of menu options go somewhere else....More

Service was fine, burgers were big. Coleslaw was warm and bitter tasting - would not recommend this item. Burgers were about $10.50.

Hello! I'm sorry to be so late in responding! It's a downtown restaurant with little parking for cars on busy days. Parking for an rv, it isn't something I've seen available down town Columbia. I'm sorry!
