    I have no idea why so many spoiled foodies dislike this spot? Great staff, atmosphere and good food! Plus the charitable bonus helps. I like the Mac daddy and the handmade sodas.

    Skip it. Waited 25 mins for a burger, no other customers, with 6-8 employees standing around. Had to get a refund and leave because they completely missed it.

    I came here for the WiFi. There are a couple of power outlets on the first floor also. The only downside is the music, too loud.

    One of the build-your-own burger joints that have been popping up for years. In this case, you get a burger with a hole in it - then you fill the hole with stuff. Very sexual. Try the fancy drinks.

    4food is revamping the notion of fast food: burger patties don’t have to taste like cardboard, and sides can be flavorful and healthy. If you’re a first-timer, start with the signature (W)holeburger.
