My son loves burgers so we have been to over 100 burger places over the years. My son said that was one of the best burgers he’s ever had. I have to agree. It was cooked to perfection and was very tasty.

We love coming here. The burgers are delicious. Especially the 2 am burger and the mushroom burger. Also love their garlic fries. The owner of the place is so nice and friendly. Best burgers ever. Also great bar/beer.
