    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.)

    New Cali-chain, plus 7 other states and ireland. BYO burgers (beef, turkey, veggie, chicken). Lots of exotic options - goat cheese, jalepeno, sprouts, egg + deserts, lots of sides, tillamook cheese!

    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.

    Sweet potato fries. And the burgers read better on the menu than they taste. Avoid burger salad at all costs.
