I had an amazing bison burger cooked medium with bacon and some other toppings. It was great. What's more is I was able to eat lunch at a burger place with my vegan sibling and vegetarian mother, and they didn't have to have a salad.

The burger was fine, but costly for what you get. You can customize in many ways, which makes for an entertaining meal.

Custom built burger joint. Have been here multiple times over the years with family and solo. Always fine-good-very good. A good place for an out-of-town visitor to sit at their bar and grab a good burger. They have expanded their menu with more variety but...More
