    I don't recommend the smushed potatoes as a side. Also, the earth burger wasn't good because it cannot cook as well done meet. Try " Vanilla Creme " as your drink !

    Try the Triple Pork Burger (with ground pork, chorizo and bacon with manchego cheese & pimento aioli). And the sweet potato fries...and tempura onion rings are good too. The only bad is the price.

    The turkey burger left a little to be desired, but every other burger was amazing! Ask the waiter for cheese-filled tater-tots (not on the menu!)

    Truffle burger highly recommended; great veggie burger, too! For dessert, try Milk's Salted Caramel ice cream sandwich ... or any of the ice cream sandwiches. *yummy*

    I unfortunately had a Truffle Burger that was overcooked when asked for medium rare. The burger itself is full of flavor but you need to get the right temperature. Smushed potatoes are a must!!!

    Not worth the money. A burger itself, which is tiny, is a minimum of $10. And plus... Too many damn hipsters there.

    The Umami Burger was the best decision I've ever made. Also the Smushed Potato with Garlic Aoili is amazing. Try the Umami ketchup sauce - tastes like barbeque tomato, yum :)

    they make their own ketchup, and on the original "umami burger" you get a parmesan crisp in lieu of cheese.
