    The best thing on the menu is the small block burger with fried pickles, unless you feel like having breakfast which is the best deal in town! I love this place!!

    Gravy cheese fries. So great. Pimento cheese under the gravy. Got it as a mistake from the kitchen. Love them even before with Tabasco on top!

    There's a lot of excellent stuff to choose from on the menu, and everything I've had has been top flight. That said, this is where you get the legendary burgers that formerly resided at The Penguin.

    Ribeye steak sandwich and swap fries for mac & cheese. And get a bottled drink like Cherwine or RC Cola. You'll want to thank me later. Just know that you're welcome.

    You don't know what a real burger is until you've been here. Get the big block with bacon and cheese! Awesome food, atmosphere, and service! Won't be going back to the Penguin!

    Near identical menu to the pre-Diamond Penguin menu. Black bean veggie burger is killer. Easy on the hush puppies - they are the size of golf balls and fill you up fast! Read more

    I hate tartar sauce but the carrot tartar sauce they have is one of my fav things in the world! Get it with hush puppies or EVERYTHING!

    Seriously, folks just letting their dogs walk all over the damn patio outside has to stop. It's a restaurant, not a dog park.
