The place is cool with a nice college vibe to it. The menu is interesting. I got the Beyonce, a spicy burger that was amazing. I went right when it opened to avoid any waits. The wait staff were nice a friendly.

Great place for burger, fries and frappe. The burgers are name after famous people. It's right at Harvard and all the cool stops. My homeboy Cole and myself tried to see who could eat the most. Tied. But go. Great place. Take cash.
