    The best fries I've ever had. Make sure you dip them in the chipotle pesto aioli.

    They stopped offering fried onion rings as a topping because the gluten free people ruin everything good

    The burger was good but better with bacon. The onion rings are awesome when they're hot.

    The fish burger is fantastic. All of the toppings are top notch, especially the mango black bean salsa. Great sweet tater fries and cheap draft beers. Best burger place around

    Here they ask for orders in stages to ensure complete customization. Choose a beef, chicken or fish burger and add toppings like mango-black bean salsa, fried egg, and grilled pineapple. Not at once. Read more
