We got the tri-tip steak sandwich and the ABC burger and split the two between us. They were both so good! We are visiting from Indiana and this was a treat for us.

I've had lunch here a few times and it is always great. The burgers are big and juicy. We got a basket of fries and it is enough for four people. The prices are good and staff are friendly.

Very unique place. Ordered at the counter and they called out your number when order was ready. Quality of food and portions were superb. Had nice craft beer selection and bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. A nice choice for dinner.
