    ...enjoy a juicy Truffle Burger (with italian truffle cheese and a truffle glaze) with Thin Fries (add Aioli sauce) on the side! Drink a Hefe Weizenbier as well... Good Times! Read more

    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 Manly Burger is a must try, for both genders. Doesn't get much better than a burger topped with smoked salt onion strings and bacon lardons. Read more

    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 :)
