Excellent food, fast friendly service. Went during lunch, it was crazy busy...then just died. We were the only ones left. Food was outstanding, service phenomenal. Had the Slabtown burger, bacon burger, mint shakes, and fries. Can't wait to go back!

They have excellent burger and fries and other sandwiches of which I cannot comment on as all I ever order is a burger. They also have Wild Bills Root Beer on Tap. Best Root Beer in the country! Service is very friendly!

We went to SlabTown after looking at reviews on TripAdvisor. It was a great choice for my family. Kids split a bag it meal which they cut in half without us asking.

Carry out order for 6 with lots of"special" requests all handled with great aplomb! Burgers and fries were YUMMY even after 10 minutes trip back to hotel. Reasonable prices and excellent flavor!
