Came here not knowing what to expect... it's a small hole in the wall burger bar just in case you were a little confused when you walk in. Menu was also confusing and burgers don't automatically come with fries so make sure you order some....More

We stopped here along trip from Maine to Boston. Had a couple burgers. Burgers were great but I wouldn't recommend the sodas they offer. Not what I'm used to having.

Came from NY to NH just for the day and I'm very glad we came here for lunch. The food was fantastic, and the service couldn't have been better. Definitely will return

I really like the food but I did not like the dinning area because its too squishy, too many people and the toilet is too close to the eating area. Turned me off waiting in line next to the toilets that I almost could not...More

We are open for lunch and dinner, but we definitely are a Joint and have a "hole in the wall" vibe. So if you are looking for a sit down place with actual plates and silverware we may not be the place for you, but if you are... More
