    Build your own burger right here in my own backyard. I never knew this was here till now. I'll definitely be back and I'll bring friends. By the way, great music playing in the background.

    I will be getting this again: Build Your Own Salad - spring mix, grilled chicken, cucumber, pickles, feta, green + black olives with oil and vinegar. YUM.

    Black bean "burger" is best I've had. Chili cheese fries are excellent. Summer Shandy on tap is a plus. Friendly, attentive servers add positive spin to the experience.

    Thursday night is karaoke night! Also $3 burgers, margaritas, and long islands! Dinner, drinks, and entertainment for under $10! Best deal in Farmington!

    The Burgers are amazing! The fries and tator tots too, the ranch was quite disgusting, and the atmosphere made me kind of sleepy, very good prices as well.

    Need more wait staff, losing money with open tables and people waiting for a table. Burger is worth the wait, don't go if looking for a quick meal.

    The burgers aren't bad, but the service is terribly slow. if I'm in the neighborhood, I can see myself returning, but it's not a "go out of your way" type place.

    Honestly this place is alright. I hate loud places and it was karaoke night 🙈. Best way I can explain it is I hit it once and yeah I hit it twice Third time isn't going to be as nice..
