Y-U-M! I ordered The Walking Ched which is a burger on a macaroni and cheese bun. It was very good, but even with just one burger patty it was very filling. I also had the chocolate cake shake which was delicious! My niece also had The Walking Ched but on the vegan patty and she ate the whole thing. My... More

Food was wonderful, a bit pricy at first but the portion size justified it. Staff was very responsive and made for a fun visit. My suggestion for "new brains" get the one with the portobello mushrooms. Yum.

I ordered the double walking ched. For me the fried Mac n' cheese buns were not wonderful and to top it off as I was eating there was a chunk of paper towel in my sandwich. The manager did make it right. Now their shakes, I had a coconut cream pie shake and it was incredibly good. Not sure I... More

This is the best burger I've ever had. Really delicious. Lots of different types of burgers on offer. It's a bit more expensive than the norm but the quality and ingredients they give can justify it. Burgers made to order. I had placed an order online for it to be picked up at a specific time. The order was not... More

Unique burger joint with crazy wonderful zombie inspired appetizers, burgers and shakes (even spiked shakes)! Great place for families and singles alike. Good service, great food. Don't miss the Brussels sprouts! Delicious! And the Chrunch Berry Shake-wonderful throw-back to your childhood!

I love the sense of humor in the menu and the homage to so many movies! The Walking Chedd was huge so beware but you will love the brains gushing out. Envy Corpse was tasty but peppers did not add anything to the flavor. Sarah's revenge had a nice little zip to it and the flavors all blended really well.... More

Zombie Burger is incredible! I got The Double Walking Ched. It's a two beef patty burger with cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, red onions, mayo, and mac and cheese. If that doesn't sound amazing enough, perhaps I didn't mention that it comes with two breaded and deep fried mac and cheese buns...this burger was legit! We also had three baskets of... More
