    "The burgers are compact beasts nestled into hand-size, gently toasted buns. The crust of the meat is crisp, sweet, well-browned... ...It was a good hamburger." - Jonathan Gold Read more

    Be prepared to wear a sign on your head that says " YES, I AM A CUSTOMER AND YES, I AM HERE TO EAT!" or else the employees will look at you like you're a fucking bear until you ask to be seated.

    A pretentious little burger. Tasty, but just completely full of itself.

    It's my 1st visit & the staff is already sub-par... Hopefully the burger will be better than the service.

    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.

    Love the food but the place is not set up for being able to have a normal conversion without having to scream. The food still brings me back.

    Went the first week they were open. Service a bit slow and confused but great food esp the onion rings. Got food to go but they have no takeout counter. You have to wait on stools at counter.

    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.
