Grew up in LB and moved back here last July. Have been here twice for take-out as I live just a few blocks away. I've been looking for a good burger joint. The search continues...

I've been to this restaurant several times. They have a broad menu. Their chili is better than expected. They also have good happy hour specials at the bar.
