    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.

    "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

    You gotta try the Diablo Burger. It's not on the menu, but it's fan-freakin-tastic! I don't like blue cheese but I love this burger!

    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.

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

    Truffle Burger and the Cheesy Tots are the way to go for your intro to this King of Burger Joint!

    get the Manly burger medium well, use the G pen or Omicron before you eat. Fries not necessary, get a Mexican Coca-Cola (real sugar cane)

    Our bartender Michelle was awesome! But I felt like the burger was way to small for the price. And like all Umami's I hate the way they give you their sauces. Here's a drop of ketchup, you want more

    Come back each time and have a different burger. Try them all. Jesus said that in the 22nd commandment.. Or something..

    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.

    One of the brunette waitresses here had the manners of a boar. But the African-American waitress was amicable and diligent with her customers! Woot.

    The Umami burger & Onion rings are d bomb! However, their service is unorganized. Get there super early to get seated.

    Protip: get the burgers with the n's instead of the traditional umami u; much better burgers.

    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.

    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.

    50 cents. Please. Better burger, better atmosphere, right down the road at Laurel Tavern. Oh and they won't charge you for more sides. Usually u don't need 2 ask 4 more because they give u enough.

    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

    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.
