    Ask whether there are any "off-menu" specials. If they have the green hatch chile burger, get it!! Perfect amount of heat.

    Found this place online; read a lot of good reviews. The food exceeded our high expectations. We got here after lunch rush, so it wasn't crowded; it's small so I see how it could easily be crowded.

    Try Owner Ricky Craig's famous fusion burgers (Philly cheesesteaks and muffulettas are just two sandwiches he's transformed into fantastic burgers).

    The fries and Greek burger were good. The sticky burger was interesting, but had a fairly long hair hanging off one end so I didn't finish it. Man at counter gave me $5 back.

    Burgers you should try: the sticky burger with peanut butter, the Philly cheesesteak burger and the hand cut fries. Beware of the small space, though, it's tiny in there. [Eater 38 Member]
