After a day of touring the city, I stopped by just before closing and the delicious burger I ate was a great ending to the day. I appreciated their take away service as I was ready to relax after the day. Good local spot.

We stopped for lunch and left full and happy. My burger was delicious. My husband's cheesesteak was wonderful. It is a simple place doing simple things well.

It is not that BM is bad, but I find their burgers are overpriced and the service a little on the slow side. Across the street is the Kezar which is much more comfortable, has excellent burgers and is about the same price.
