    Home of the Big Ugly Burger Challenge: finish a 1.5 lb burger to be on the wall of fame; finish 2 burgers to get a headshot; 3 to get a poster; 4 to get a life-sized cut-out! -Adam Richman, Man v Food

    Just about the best burger I've ever had! 1/2 lb Elk, medium w American, bacon, sauté mushrooms. The roll makes the burger though! #Spectacular

    Elk burgers, waffle fries, and a vanilla coke. Get the sweet potato fries with marshmallow, and have them cook your elk burger medium

    Best burger in town. You can smell the meat grilling a block away. Lots of outdoor seating. Great place for families. Just please keep your kid quiet if you sit next to me!

    DELICIOUS!! Can save money if you split the Big Ugly b/w friends. But the food there is so good and so is the ice cream.

    The Mahi-Mahi sandwich is always fantastic. Get it with some of their waffle fries - they have just a hint of heat - and you've got a great meal. Finish off with some ice cream... yum! Read more
