    The turkey burger is amazing! I am a burger snob and usually want only a beef burger, but I tried the Turkey and I was so good I had to ask the server if they made a mistake and brought be beef. :)

    With four types of patties, 12 types of cheese, 33 toppings, 21 sauces and six types of bun, exactly 312,120 different burgers combos are possible. (House-made guac and tangy tzatziki are two faves.)

    When you order fries, remember you can order any of the burger sauces to dip your fries in. Hot wing sauce and peanut sauce are great for dipping.

    First time here. Ordered the fifty-fifty fries, got 25% garlic-parm 75% regular. Cup sat empty for about 10mins before it was sloppily refilled. Burger was good.

    Outside seating seems to get you a table faster, however the service is not great. Good thing the food makes up for it!

    Twice I came to eat and both times, the service was sub par. It seemed they hired high school kids with no training in how to greet and provide customer service.
