I had the venison burger, tiramisu milkshake, and some fries to share with a friend! The portions are large and the burger had a very rich flavor and was only slightly game-y. Would highly recommend this place to others! Thanks Swandri :)!

You know what I can't believe? That this place isn't always packed, that's what! It is tucked away a bit and it isn't apparent there is easy and abundant parking in the back, but once you know... The food is extremely flavorful and considerate. In...More

The menu is limited but the prices are amazing. Two pieces if fried chicken for $6 or a half rack of ribs for $9. The deep fried chicken burger is awesome. The fries are not quite as good, not crisp. Friendly and tasty

As soon as we stepped into the restaurant I knew we made a good choice for lunch. Mouth watering aromas, updated decor with comfy seating, and everywhere I looked was shiny clean. It's obvious this restaurant is run with great pride of ownership! We both...More

We have been to this place a couple of times at lunchtime and were impressed both times. The burgers are delicious and the side salad is very addictive. It was not busy both times we have been there, which is a shame, given the overpriced...More
