Very good burger. Also ordered an onion ring & sweet potato fries side...the fries were great, but the onion rings weren't the best I've had. The meat on the burgers was extremely tasty. We were surprised by up charge to grill onions.

From the outside this place looks like a sit-down diner. Once you step inside you realize you are in an elevated fast food joint. You order up front at the counter, get your own drinks (unless you order alcohol), and seat yourself. You get a...More
