    I really liked the Hot Mess burger and the red velvet shake

    So ridiculously overpriced for small portions of very average food. Jimbo's across the street is far superior
  • Mike F.
    Classic Burger was very good but not enough special sauce & burger meat wasnt great quality. Jerk Fries were very good but a bit too much seasoning. Harlem Shake also pretty good but nothing special.

    Had my usual hot mess. The pitcher of mimosa is a great value. My friend and I had a pitcher Friday night, definitely enough for 3 people at least.

    The Harlem Jerk is awesome, and 5 beers for $15 between 4-8pm is clutch.

    This burger is a must-eat. And, the mac'n cheese is creamy decadence. Not a fan of the velvet milkshake but the vanilla and strawberry are fantastic. Fries are average but burger won't disappoint!

    The orders take a while. I ordered 3 shakes and had to wait 30 mins. My co-worker ordered food and shakes after me and received her order before mine. Overall the shakes were okay.

    You can never go wrong here. Vegetarians: get the veggie patty which is one of the best I've had - and ask for your fries to be cooked in vegetable oil! Cajun spiced fries are outta control!

    The mind-blowing veggie burger here is built on a homemade nut-and-grain patty, typically served in classic style: two patties with cheese, onions, pickles, and the restaurant's special sauce.

    Just might be the best-tasting veggie burger I've ever bought 👌. Wish the kale salad was massaged to make it softer but overall they have an impressive selection for vegetarians.

    The classic burger and Red Velvet shake were good, but a little sad on their own. Spend a little bit more to get some sides or you'll end up with another burger =)
