    Delicious burgers and fries! Great beer selection too. To avoid a wait, go later in the evening on a weeknight.

    The wait to be seated is well worth your time! The variety of burgers is absolutely incredible, and the quality is the best in the city.

    No preparation can get you ready for Thurman's. Make sure you have room in your fridge after this one.

    Do not eat here, it's dirty, dusty & I kid you not had worms on my burger & friend's burger. We cut them in 1/2 to try the different types & when I went to eat saw green squiggly worms! Stay away :(
