This place is extremely popular and always packed. So be prepared for a crowded somewhat noisy atmosphere. People rave about the food and I enjoyed my meal for the most part but it was extremely crowded,as it always is,and I prefer a little more space....More

Fabulous burgers, garlic fries and chicken wings. Good menu selection. Always very busy and hard to find a seat or get to the bar to order drinks. Go early, eat outside and meet new friends. Dog friendly at outside tables.

My sister and I ordered the soup of the day, which was mushroom curry. However, the soup had so much pepper in it, that I couldn't taste the curry (which usually is a standout ingredient) or the mushroom. I couldn't finish mine, but my sister...More
