The entire experience was very enjoyable. The atmosphere was comfortable; there are many choices for burgers and not just burgers with or without cheese, they have very unique options. The fries are amazing. The hype on the burger itself is overblown, I've had better burgers...More

Good burgers are not soggy. Had to wash hands And face after eating. I really don't know whether my burger was sabotaged or just put together ineptly.

Had the “best burger ever”, it was messy, but good. Really liked the freedom fries. Burgers are well made and fresh. Interesting selection of shakes, but didn’t have time to try one.

Definitely worth a stop if you’ve never been there before. We’ve been here a couple of times and haven’t had anything that we didn’t like.
