Every time we come into town to see family we try to make time to get a garlic burger. It's been a number of years and while still good, they are not as good as I remembered. The bread was still wonderful but it didn't...More

Is this a dive bar? Probably by definition! Its very modest, with a small interior. You actually walk along side the kitchen to enter from the parking lot. But it does serve the best garlic burgers I have ever tasted. A few things to keep...More

I was drawn to try this place because of the name (with a cute bunny on the old sign!) and the word-of-mouth draw for the Garlic Burgers! Definitely, nice to sit and sip, play the jukebox or watch a game.

It's a locals kinda dive bar, but they've made a dish people are talking about. I heard about the Garlic Burger ($8.50) in the hot tub at Snow Bird, it's only 20 minutes away. Two really good garlic burgers and 3 beers later for $27,...More

Great place to sit down for a beer and a burger. Each bite is filled with garlic and is not disappointing. The bread is an important part of what makes the burger so good. I love that they have a limited menu so they can...More
