My wife and I stopped in for a burger after watching a movie at the nearby Art Theater. Our burgers were cooked to perfection from high quality hamburger. The blue cheese topping was a great complement to the tasty burgers. I had a half order of onion ringers which also very good. They had a good selection of craft beer... More

This is my wife and I favorite place to go for a casual meal. I have had a lot of their menu but my favorite is the Spicoli burger with pepper jack cheese. The mushrooms and sautéed onions are delicious. the only thing better than their homemade fries is their homemade sweet potato fries. My wife loves the Elaine salad.... More

This place is hidden by a parking garage, but it's worth finding. Simple menu. Good service. Tasty burgers. Great for game night.

The chicken sandwich was good, but the tortilla chips were not well-matched. All of the food comes with tortilla chips or the option of other sides for an upcharge. The onion rings were delicious. Expect sandwiches (like burgers) and some salads, but not much else.

Farren's is one of my favorite local restaurants. Fairly small and simple with a bar across front of restaurant. Very popular so be prepared to wait for a table. They have a number of regular menu offerings and daily specials but their burgers are incredible! They have several specialty burgers, my favorites are the "spicoli", and the "green chile cheeseburger".... More
