    Terrible service. We repeatedly asked for food, drinks, utensils - some of which never came. One order got "lost" even though we all ordered together...

    They used to have five burgers with crazy names. They've since simplified it down to just "the Sidewalk Burger", but you can still pick your own adventure with additional toppings. Great fries too.

    This place is the best of both worlds. Great brunch menu, fantastic dinner menu (burgers are spectacular) and for those over 21, the most SENSATIONAL spiked milkshakes are out of this world!
