    Used to be a train tix station. Get the epic Foran burger medium rare. 1/2 lb Fresh ground chuck with corned beef, sauerkraut and Russian dressing - incredible. Pair it with a big malty local beer!

    Went there at an extremely busy time. It was kinda one of those places where service was a "take it or leave it" kinda of thing. Great selection of beer on tap, but you know that already! Good burger!
