Very nice atmosphere and comfortable at that. Open seating and inviting for all. Had the blue burger cooked to my liking. Medium was true medium. The BCR fries a must. Good old fashion music to make your time a good experience. A return.

Juicy yummy burgers! Great variety and fair prices. The only reason it did not get 5 stars it is because when we visited, service was not up to par. It was our first time there and the waiter wasn't nice when we asked questions about...More
