We loved this place. Great food and decent prices. We recommend the Burgers. They are really delicious and the wait staff were really friendly.

Cute and nostalgic atmosphere, but the hamburgers were nothing spectacular despite their big size. Disappointed in the shypoke eggs, too. They didn't have the same appearance as an egg like they did in the old days at Hipp's and the cheese was sort of overheated and dry. Great tunes on the jukebox and friendly waiter.

This is just the place when you are craving a good ole fashioned burger with all the fixings! If you order the tater tots, be aware that what they call a "large order" is exactly that....LARGE! The order is more than enough for four people. Their hamburgers are also large so be prepared to eat until you are absolutely stuffed!

This restaurant has been around a long time. Well know for their (shy poak eggs) a chip with white cheese and then a small piece of yellow cheese on top it looks like an egg. Every burger is good and very BIG.

Smaller place in the Pearl Brewery area but hidden away is best. If you come across this place, stop in for the cute table tunes and delicious burgers.

All in all a good choice for a burger. Next to the renovated Pearl Brewery. Nice Americana setting, but hard to find if you haven't been here before. I would recommend this to anybody craving a burger in this neighborhood.

This is a hidden-away eatery where I discovered great burgers and other authentic, fresh old-fashioned "meals-in-a-basket". I been there several times for lunch and each time the order is prepared fresh and comes out hot, juicy and just right. I've had both the beef burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches and have never been disappointed. The added plus is the fries... More

They are okay. Don't expect to get "blown away." Their burgers are fine but nothing out of the ordinary. I won't compare them to anyone else. It's a solid burger. The service is sometimes with a smile, others, it feels like they could care less if you were there. This is one thing they can improve on. Other than that,... More

Classic, unique, excellent, one-of-a-kind burger offering! Timbo worked at the original "Little Hipp's" for years and not only learned how to make the "Hot Burger Steak" and the "Yellow Submarine" ..... he improved it! These burgers are awesome! For the uninformed, the Yellow Sub is a made as follows: Two burger patties are pressed together with fresh jalapeños and cheese... More
