there were 6 of us and we each had a different burger as there are endless choices. You choose the meat then the bun then the toppings. Service was very efficient.

While the menu can be overwhelming, it’s great to have choices. Use process of elimination to land on all of your favorites or try the most popular ones listed on the top of the menu. Everything was prepared to order and portions were large. Water...More

Too many specially-designed burgers - it could take half an hour to read them all. Not worth the price. There are better burger places at lower prices.

Great food. Not a great place for any form of conversation. Couldn't hear ourselves think. Will give it another try as they offer a large variety of burgers. Maybe take out would be better.

The selection of burgers is endless and almost overwhelming. Take some time to read the menu. Visited here with family and we enjoyed our burgers with unique toppings (egg, pineapple, PB). The location is great, service was okay, but the bill seemed on the high...More

My friends and I used to come here all the time because we loved the fun burger combination. But, the last time we came was a Thursday around 6pm. There were only 2 other tables; the staff outweighed the customers in number. However, it still...More

Burgers are okay. Not great. Price is insane. I would rather go somewhere else and enjoy a better meal at the same price as a hamburger here. If I want a burger I would recommend Sonnys.
