    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.

    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.

    A burger that I don't feel guilty eating! Nothing is fried and everything is delicious! Extra perks: make and name your own burgers online and iPads on their tables!!!

    I got a burger with eggplant parm. It worked! The receipt tells you how many calories you're consuming. That's killer. Come for the food, stay for the iPads.

    Make sure your condiment is in the to go bag. They left out my condiment two days in a row and I didn't find out until I was in the office and it was too late. Food is good and satisfying though.

    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.

    Re: lamb skewer with coconut rice and cole slaw. Great idea and quite delicious but just not enough food. Burgers with buns hit the spot just right however.

    Get the garden burger with the sauteed mushroom and onion scoop! -- Food Networking was filming when I was there so you know it's good
