    The veggie burger was a straight up Boca patty, at least the fries are ok.

    Grab a table in the great backyard and knock back one of the 16 fine craft beers they have on tap. Add a burger and some sweet potato fries to that and you're right as rain. Read more

    This has been our go-to veg burger joint for years, but we're done. The prices have now outweighed the food. $50 for 2 burgers, beers, & a basket of fries feels expensive for what you get here.

    Don't go when crowded. The food is served cold and over cooked. Bartenders have attitudes when confronted with poor food from the kitchen.

    Get the regular burger and sweet potato fries, which come with the chipotliest of mayos. All beers are superb here as well!

    French fries and sweet potato fries are great! Always get their veggie burger and I'm never disappointed. They usually have lunch specials of a burger and small glass of beer for $10 total—steal!

    Decent veggie burger, solid fries, and a great beer menu. Prices went up recently though so it ends up feeling a tad expensive for a couple of burgers, beers, and a basket of fries.

    Bison burger tops much of Manhattan's fancy burger places. Can't believe I've never stopped in before. Get the basket of fries, leave will a full belly and wallet still!

    Every day, noon-5pm - burger, fries + 1/2 pint of beer for $10. There's nothing beating that deal in the immediate area. And it's a very decent, tasty burger at that. You can also order for pick-up.

    I don't understand how a place so mediocre is always so busy. I guess it's the simplicity of burgers and beer... fries are often scraps, burgers are basic, but at least it's cheap
