    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.

    What a sleeper. You'd have no idea what great food this place has if someone's didn't tell you. A delicious German Village secret.

    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 :(

    This is absolutely the BEST burger I have ever had, this coming from a burger aficionado and connoisseur. Try the Blazin Burger if you like some spice.

    9 times out of 10, the service isn't friendly and the wait is atrocious... But once that glorious burger touches your tongue, you forget the rest!
