    Avoid this place like the plague. The burgers are really nothing special. The fries are standard. Nothing is really worth the money here. Go somewhere else. This place needs to die.

    Single cheeseburger, fries, chocolate shake. Like the Five Guys version of Au Cheval.

    ✅Double cheeseburger. ✅fries w/garlic aolivanilla shake w/Baileys.You can only do it once a month. But it's worth it!

    The fry game has definitely improved! Also grab some Big red soda.

    Dog-friendly patio. Serves beer and Fernet.

    The inside is cramped and loud, so hope for a mild day and head to the back patio, where you can feast on gloriously griddled burgers and thick shakes in relative peace. Read more

    Great burgers, but you must ask for lettuce and tomatoes...delicious.

    If you're broke and still want the experience, stop by for a shot and fries w/ garlic aioli. Worth the $6-$7. The aioli should be mass marketed and sold everywhere, freakin aphrodisiac status.

    Pour big red soda in your vanilla shake. *homer drool*

    Lettuce is not a good idea if you are doing to-go during the summer.

    Order the cheeseburger 'house style'. Add tomato and lettuce if you like. Skip the bacon - it's thin and doesn't add much flavor. Don't forget garlic aioli for your fries!

    It wasn't what I had expected, it's nothing special about this over priced burger. I've had better. The fries are okay but it had way too much salt.

    My brain can't process the pleasure I got from this meal. Nancy Reagan should've used these cheeseburgers and fries to keep kids off drugs. Oh, and a chocolate shake. Do it, nerd.

    Either my love for Au Cheval is faltering, or Small Cheval just wasn't as good/memorable.

    We're not worthy. No nonsense burgers, shakes and fries that were sent straight from heaven.

    Simple menu, with a cafeteria-style set up and window bar seating, as well as limited bar seating upfront. amazing burgers.

    Small Cheval has been trending since it opened its doors 6 months ago! Its all about great burgers in a casual setting. Make sure to get their tasty pickles to go along with the meats. Read more

    Kickass cheeseburgers and really crispy fries. I'd give it 9 out of 10, cuz I never rate 10 :-)

    Wow. This was pretty great. Went on a Saturday afternoon and didn't have to wait. One of best 'fast food' burgers I've ever had. Perfect for a quick lunch and skipping that 3 hour wait at Au Cheval.

    I like the cheeseburger & love the pickles. I prefer the style here over Au Cheval but I never get the bacon or egg. To each their own. Similar to Shake Shack. Great outdoor seating in good weather.

    Great portion of burgers! And the fries are great! The only thing that's missing is the Au Cheval chili.

    You've gotta love a place with three things on the menu. They do burgers, fries, and shakes. And they're amazing.

    Cheeseburger was good, the bacon doesn't add much to the burger. Good burger for a very reasonable price.

    Like Au Cheval with a smaller line. Order a burger and remember to add bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

    DAMN good burgers and a very short wait. Haven't been to Au Cheval yet to compare, but it's hard to imagine a better burger.

    Burgers are dry, even with the dijionaise, and the fries were overdone. But I'll give them another chance since Au Cheval is so great.

    It's a bit expensive, but this is one of the best casual eateries with friendly service. Get here early. The line gets big fast and can lead out the door.

    Lovers of Au Cheval’s burgers now have a spot to grab that same great burger outdoors on a rockin’ patio while sipping peach gimlets and listening to the low rumble of the passing Blue Line. Read more

    Let's be honest, it's a burger with or without cheese. And fries. The service here is awesome. Ask for Ryan, either one will do there are two and both are great. :)

    If you are looking to get one of the best burgers in the city in a more casual atmosphere without a waiter, check this place out. Burger great, fries ok.
