The sliders are good and the scene is interesting in a college Hangout sort of way. I like their variety in burgers, not just beef but also bison and lamb. It is a bit overpriced, sliders aren't filling on their own and the portions are small. I wouldn't come here just to eat but not a bad place to catch... More

We eat here frequently because the food is always good/consistent), the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere is casual. If you're in the mood for sliders, fries, and craft beer this is the best place around.

The sliders have good flavor, and it's nice that you can mix sliders on the combo meals. The combo meal is well priced. Service to get water refilled is rather slow, but ordering and the time it takes for food to come out is good.

This is a good place to order all kinds of sliders. There are many options and you can mix the different kinds on one plate. The sliders are small, but very filling. The service was a little slow and felt like a sports bar. There were a lot of tvs all turned to the same game. The servers were friendly.... More

You gotta really love sliders to come here for the food. Most people seem to come for the beer and camaraderie

We eat lunch here frequently while visiting our son at Stanford. The food is good and we like the fact you can get a varied amount of food depending on how hungry you are. Love their fries.

The sliders were really tasty and deceptively filling (they look small, but they have big flavor!). I stopped in for lunch with my co-workers and between the four of us tried a variety of the sliders...all of which were really good.

Try the beef sliders or "hot chick" sandwich. Also the Three Twins ice cream is to die for; the Mexican chocolate flavor is awesome.
