We went in for a late lunch. Our group was starving and crabby. Excellent fresh made burgers, friendly staff and cool history. The Green Beatle hit the spot.

Excellent! Our server Shauntel was friendly and attentive, even helping us choose from the brewed beers for our palettes used to domestic beers. The food was delicious- we ordered the Nachos and the Philly steak fries. They have a kid menu for the little beetles....More
