    I could eat the cheesy tots all day. Sit at the bar if you want to avoid the claustrophobic booths.

    The fried pickles are served as spears, not as chips. Tart, hot and juicy but only the barest coating of batter. Different from other fried pickles I've seen.

    Truffle cheese fries.. blech! Sounded good in my head. Wish they had fries with Parmesan cheese and truffle oil instead.

    Stuart sucks! He told me to get the tuna burger which was salty. texture of the tuna was so odd. It was ground up tuna but it felt like meat. I expected a tuna steak or filet in my burger. Not cool

    Disappointed with the new spicy turkey burger... Sad because all the other burgers are fantastic. I think the sauce is bland.

    Eh. A burger. On a brioche bun. With some "once" interesting ingredients. I'm not impressed. Sweet potato fries didn't need the extra sugar added. Decor is rad. Food is eh.

    Unique burgers. Truffle burger was great! Not enough burger for the $. If you're not a sociable person this place isn't for you because you're guaranteed to rub against the neighboring table.

    Don't come here as a party of 3; it is their policy to cram you into one table by turning it sideways... until you complain to the manager.
