I have eaten here a few times now and have always come away satisfied. Yes, it is an extremely small place but table turnover rate is acceptable. We have had quinoa salad (dressing is amazing), grilled cheese and soup, sweet potato fries, a breakfast wrap and breakfast biscuit. All were very tasty and look forward to next time we go.

Small but not cramped. The burger was not cooked as ordered had to return. They got it correct the second time. The burger was good but a bit messy which is ok but the plate they serve it on isn't much bigger than the burger so it makes for a difficult experience. Ordered the hush puppies which were good but could have used a little more flavour. The prices are my biggest complaint $12 for a burger, $6 hush puppies, $5 fries, $10 glass of wine, $9 glass of beer.

Best burgers in town! Tables are very small so it's not the most comfortable but the food certainly makes up for that. It's an absolute must!

Good hamburger at 9.00 US, draft wine and a good dessert at 6.00 plus. Lunch in the 20.00 range.

When it comes to burgers, I'm a traditionalist. Either I want an old-fashioned single-patty burger with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo, on a bun that can stand up to the dressing, or in hipper climes I want a double-patty like Bocado in Atlanta -- just a great bun, two patties of fresh-ground beef and cheese.

But I guess chefs, cooks and restaurant owners have to express their creativity, even in the homely burger.

Like at Shindig in Woodstock, NY. The Shindig Burger, at a rather pricey $12 plus $5 for fries, looks like a traditional burger, but it has a broiled tomato instead of regular sliced tomato, onion chutney instead of sliced onion and a "smokey sauce" instead of mayo.

Okay, this little eatery (about 25 seats) in the hippie-est town north of Chapel Hill, NC, seems popular, and a lot of customers order the Shindig Burger or the Farmhouse Burger, so I must be out of step.

But, as I say, I'm a traditionalist when it comes to important things like cheeseburgers. Even the 1960s music that plays constantly in this and other spots in Woodstock doesn't soothe the savage beast.
