Really good selection of burgers and beer. Witnessed a friend eat the 24 ounce triple burger and get his name on a knife.

The one thing guys liked were the burgers. Those of us that substituted grilled chicken for the beef, it was pretty bad. Tough and didn't taste good. Service was OK but the cute little waitress not very pleasant. Fries and burgers if you eat that...More

Ridiculously good burgers! Fun Five points atmosphere. Pimiento cheese burger is awesome! Try the sweet potato fries. Definitely won't leave hungry!

The burger taste good - at least what of them you can get into your mouth. They start falling apart after the first bite. Had to finish up with a fork.

Hello! I'm sorry to be so late in responding! It's a downtown restaurant with little parking for cars on busy days. Parking for an rv, it isn't something I've seen available down town Columbia. I'm sorry!
