    Pro tip: The napkins are pretty straight forward in being of bar/tavern type construction. Nice and sturdy enough with no frills simplicity. 10/10 Would wipe mouth again.

    Cool place. The burger was as advertised. Very juicy, the burger was hot and the lettuce, onion, tomato was crisp and cold. I had the Government cheese burger (stuffed with cheese).

    We love this place. Awesome retro atmosphere & best burgers & bar food. BUT when they're BUSY & they have a backroom bar w/booths & tables for WAITING ONLY that's BS. We'll leave if not seated soon.

    The bartenders here are always HUGE pricks. I think that's part of the, uh, charm? I still keep coming back because the burgers, the sangria, and the free retro dance parties cannot be beat.

    The music is awesome. Great playlist of songs, packed with classics! Make sure you go in the right door otherwise you'll push your way to the crowd to get to the hostess!

    They got rid of all their foursquare specials, you cant sit at viceroy and order from stellas so you have to wait an hr for a table and you have to order a drink to get the burger special on thursday

    You need to come here on Thursdays for half of stuffed burgers and dance night. Then come here and dance your booty off on Friday and Saturday night as well.

    I was stoked to try the burgers here after hearing all the hype. After waiting for more than an hour, we got seated. Service was decent. Burger meat contained hair... not awesome. But the scotch!

    The burgers were phenomenal , and the fries were delicious, i had a gov't cheese burger. Then played a little pinball, what's better than that?

    It's a shame, they've started carding for entrance, whether it's for drinking or even just ordering a burger. They're off our list of places to take friends when they visit.

    I have friends that work here, but even so, it's nice to have a bar that 1) doesn't play fucking sports on the TVs and 2) plays good music all day

    BURGERS. Cheap old school beers and usually a few MI drafts as well. Also, the deep fried avocado Nugents are legit.

    It took the literally 25 minuets to get me my takeout fries behind the bar. When they finally decided to hand them to me the bartender rolled his eyes at me. Get it together stellas!

    Their spicy chili rocks! It isn't too spicy but it has a kick so if spice isn't your thing be sure to ask for sour cream!

    Remember when Stellas used to have a plethora of vegan food? Well, atleast the bloody mary bar is good and they play good cartoons.

    This place has gotten rid of a lot of their vegan sandwiches and the food has gone down in quality since I first started coming here years ago. Still decent, just not great.

    Food was good, but had a silly problem with the drinks and bleach-blonde manager-bartender was awful about it. Cool atmosphere, but too dark and the music was too loud. Excellent burgers.

    Genesee Cream Ale and blessed black wings. Andrew is a sweetpea and nice to look at. Donkey Kong frustrates me but I continue to give it all of my laundry money.
