Very nice atmosphere. Good burgers, great fries, EXCELLENT service. Wife wasn't thrilled with her "Greek" salad was not made the way we are used to having it made. I could see this as being the go to burger place if I lived there year round.

Order at the counter and then there are food runners and bussers who will help you with what you need when you are seated...bring you drinks, silverware, condiments, etc.
