    As of 6/29/2016, a server informed me they no longer have the turkey burger. They'd sold the last of them a few weeks prior, and have no immediate plans to resume selling them.

    I had the Guacamole burger and it was so awesome! Tomato bisque wasn't so fabulous but it's a burger spot, so wasn't expecting much.

    Decent, if not too messy, burgers. Great beer list. But do you really have to use a loudspeaker to call for parties to be seated? So annoying. Loud room as it is without the annoying squawk box.

    ORDER: Coronary Bypass Burger. If you’re serving customers a ½ lb. sirloin burger, topped with a fried egg, 3 slices of cheese, 4 strips of bacon & mayo, you might as well name it after heart surgery.

    Gotta be honest, the burgers are only good because of the crazy combos. The meat itself is unseasoned and bland. Staff could use some work. The bartenders all seemed to be in a bad mood.
