    I tried the All-American burger and it was fantastic. They cook the burger to your doneness request. There is nothing better than a medium rare burger. Yum

    We like our burgers dressed the old-fashioned way, with cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and grilled onions, alongside a double chocolate shake and sweet-potato fries.

    The Triple D is an amazing burger! They usually have great burgers of the month as well, however this place is a bit pricey.

    I love the burgers and amazingly good fries. I don't like Five Guys like I like this place. It puts them to shame!

    Good flame-grilled burgers. Have yet to explore the burger menu, because The Burger is so good, so classic.

    Oktoberfest burger...good burger on a stale rye bun not bad but maybe November will bring a fresher experience, though again, it wasn't bad.

    The Southwester burger is good but beware the texture is akin to a slightly drier sloppy joe and it's VERY spicy. Get the sweet potato fries -they rock!

    Try a different burger each time you visit - start with the Wellington. If you go with a friend, one should get the the Yukon Gold fries and one should get onion rings.

    Your well done burger may come out burnt. You may want to step that back to a medium well.

    The service is often lacking, but the burgers are top notch. My favorite is the Ahi Tuna Burger with a side of the green standard.

    Tip to management: please employ better people. Tip for anyone else: the veggie burger is awesome, but save your dollars for the other locations. Much better service.
