You can choose full service sit down or counter service if you're in more of a hurry (it's the same restaurant, but you have that option - I really like that). We enjoyed three different burgers, their poutine and the s'mores milkshake. Nicely located in...More

Side orders, including fries are a la carte. This is due to the monstrous burgers! Toppings are plentiful. Share an order of fries for sure!

This place is so much fun. The burgers are awesome, the toppings are endless, the drinks are great! Don't leave out one of their ice cream shakes! So stinking good!

This isn't the best better that I've had but the most unique Juan Burger that I have ever tasted. The customer service was excellent. The fries were ordinary but there's a good chance that I'll be back.

Three of us from California went to Zombie Burger in downtown DSM in April. None of the three of us liked the burgers, they were greasy, no flavor--even the French Fries were greasy! Will not return.
