This place does burgers right. Very small menu but done well, burgers are on point. Kids even loved the kids burger. The frozen custard is a must after dinner. Will be back.

Had a meal here before we went to the bars its just another burger bar with a fancy name. We were expecting something different but it's not. Expensive for what you get.
