    Open late. Serves breakfast all day. Breakfast burrito is the most amazing thing to happen to my life. Milkshakes have me calling in for pick up. The best.

    Huge portions of comfort food. Pizza fries were unique. Cheese on everything! Craft beer. Milkshakes nice and thick (though flavored with syrups).

    Breakfast burrito is the only thing you should eat. Best meal of your life. Also, Ray, the red head bartender, is easy on the eyes ;)

    The Lord designed the breakfast burrito with you in mind, ye with a hangover. Feast upon it with home fries and commiserate over your crazy night.

    Not sure what to get? Get a burrito. Breakfast time? More like burrito time. Friends wasting time figuring out what to order? Order for them. Burrito. Burrito, burrito, burrito.

    Excellent breakfast, and pretty good prices too. They also being your food out very fast. Drinks are in a smaller pitcher so the chance of you needing a refill is slim to none! EAT HERE!

    Best milkshakes in Richmond. Best place to go after a round of drinks, after classes, anytime. Great food, relaxed atmosphere.

    Try a vanilla-based milkshake with pumpkin and chai spice flavoring. It tastes like fall and you will never order anything but that again. xD

    Great food - beverages by the pitcher - I would recommend buying a pitcher for $7.00, taking it home, and filling it with margaritas

    A must-go when in Richmond... the mini-pitchers they use for drinks are the best! (a great cure for hangovers, as well)
