Finally! A real hand-formed burger! No frozen tasteless cardboard patties! Not only was the burger wonderful, but the fries were hot, salted just right. Service was perfect...attentive, but not pushy. I love this place and it takes a lot for a restaurant to meet my expectations.

I am a Summerville resident and discovering this place was wonderful! The owner is a very friendly person and likes to have a rapport with his customers ... a great trait in a small business owner! The loose meat burger was soooo tender and delicious and the seasoned fries were just as wonderful. It has been years since my daughter... More

Good burgers, you can tell they use freshly prepped quality meat. The food is big and filling. I would skip on the Mexican style I believe it was called, it was live oil fried onions and jalapeños. Wasn't really my thing and didn't fit the price. But will be going back in the future.

We had a great lunch with cheese burgers and fries. They had a good variety of other items and lunch specials.

Their specialty is the "bomb" -- a sausage burger smothered in chili -- which our son-in-law recommended, and both he and my husband ordered. The young server brought only one "bomb" which she gave to my husband. When we told her of the mistake, she avoided checking on our table until she brought the missing order. Of course we were...

These guys have really gone downhill. The fries are boring, undercooked, and frozen and the only thing good about the burgers is the patty. The bacon was undercooked and tasted bleh.

We were heading out of Summerville for home. Pulled up restaurants on TripAdvisor and this was close. Pulled in and walked in. Quaint and welcoming atmosphere with friendly service. We had the bacon cheeseburger and cheeseburger. Delicious and better than another box chain burger place. Highly recommend this little local place. We will be back.

My husband & I went here after a long bike ride on a hot day so we were more than ready for refueling. It's a cute little place & the staff were very friendly & prompt. I'm ordered the chili hamburger steak with cheese & my husband had Matt's special burger. Both were awesome, the chills was really good. We... More
