This place had amazing burgers along with great tacos! I had the bacon burger...with lots of bacon! There must have been fives pieces of bacon on it. It was a BIG burger It was done perfectly with well melted cheese and the bun was exceptional. It also came with more fries than I could eat. Definitely worth the stop! ,
