Very relaxed outdoor atmosphere with very good burgers and drinks. I had the U Joint burger and the wife had the chicken sandwich and both were very good. Service was excellent. Definitely worth a meal here.

Thank you so much! We try very hard to provide the best food and service! The skinny fries were an experiment and we didn't like them either! Our wings will always be fresh and cooked to order. We have considered onion rings... More
