    The purpose of a fried egg is lost on Epic. If you're going to cook it till the yolk is solid, don't bother. Aside from that, it's great. Get the junior if you're a fan of flat, griddle-style patties.

    good tasting burger. a little bit too greasy for me, but still very delicious. grilled onion was awesome in it. it is a good Friday comfort food.

    Epic’s thin patties are the perfect portion. Punch up your lunch with add-ons like horseradish Havarti, buttermilk blue or one-year-aged cheddar. http://tmoutchi.us/YmTIHi Read more

    Try the Epic Burger with Cheese - Not bad, but not the best "premium" burger I've had. Not a big fan of the actual burger busting out of the bun, nor the toppings under the party.

    You won't be able to sit down so if you're on foot I don't recommend coming here there are too many people and too few seats

    A really tasty burger if you want something quick and on the go. One of my faves. They are too pushy with the up selling though.

    Something is fishy about a burger advertised for $5.99, which rings up for $7.60

    Good shakes. Burgers were tasty but incredibly messy and definitely greasier than strictly necessary. Skip the fries.
