    First time going and it was AMAZING. Hubby and I had the Pittsburger, Western Burger and fried pickles, all VERY delicious. And the Texas Mule is a must try drink. Highly recommend.

    Sit at the bar, order a beer (local) and make a crazy BYO burger. Also, the music selection is awesome. Any bar that plays 'Tangerine' by Led Zeppelin is a winner in my book.

    Ahi Tuna burger w/ wasabi mayo ROCKS! Herbed Tater Tots = tasty but a tad salty. PB&J milk shake = fun & yum. Nice assortment of Might Leaf teas. Great customer service.

    Get the tater tots - they are the best side. The black bean burger is so good, you won't even know you're eating a bean burger. Definitely worth trying!

    The Bacon cheeseburger on steroids was delicious. Nice balance of flavors. Don't get the TATER TOTS, unless you just love them. Wasted a side item, no room for dessert.

    OK this is actually Big Daddy's, not Bad Daddy's. I recommend the Sam I Am burger - comes with pesto and a fried egg. And the small salad is super cheap and is enough to fill me up!

    The side salad is a good healthy alternative & their veggies are so crisp & fresh. I recommend the chipotle ranch dressing (on the side)! Very tasty & not too bad if u use about 1/4 of the serving.

    Be aware everything is an extra. I got a bacon cheese burger, side salad, and a drink for 18.00. Cheese, bacon, and a side all extra.

    As a creature of habit, I love two things here: A specialty burger & a make-your-own salad. Was hitting it 2-3x/week until they changed the menu, taking off 1/3 of my ingredients. Down to 1/month now.

    The patio is enclosed and heated by propane heaters during the winter; sit there to both bask in the heat and to avoid the TVs inside.
