Really enjoyed our burgers...the Bacon cheddar melt and the cheeseburger with fried onion sticks. Yummy and so were the sweet potato fries. 🍟 🍔 We think the food is better at this location than Short Pump location.

Spike, Thanks for your review, even though it sounds like we ran into some confusion relative to pricing. We are very pleased though that our manager took care of you. Our milkshakes are the bomb though! Respectfully, Mike B., Owner

The burger was delicious! The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is because the bottom bun was cold. Worth the trip!
