    Great burgers. Fabulous, addictive sweet potato fries! My only complaint - if you get the BLT, tell them you want extra bacon. Otherwise, there's just not enough.

    My love for burgers always leads me back to the king of build your own burger, The Counter. You can order your patty 12, 2/3 or 1 lb. I go for the 2/3 since I like to leave room for the potato fries.

    The atmosphere was nice, our waitress was friendly, and our food came pretty quick. I needed a Build Your Own sliders option so I could try more of the awesome ingredient list. ❤ Sweet Potato Fries.
