My husband & I stopped for a quick meal based on local grass raised beef used. I had the Naked burger w/ caramelized onions, husband had ultimate cheeseburger, plus their fries. They were great! This place is not cheap but really enjoyed the food!

This was the best meal we had our first few days on the island. Fries are skinny and just spicy enough with sauce for dipping. Still here and plan on another visit before vacation ends. Highly recommend!!😊
