After a day of touring the city, I stopped by just before closing and the delicious burger I ate was a great ending to the day. I appreciated their take away service as I was ready to relax after the day. Good local spot.

We stopped for lunch and left full and happy. My burger was delicious. My husband's cheesesteak was wonderful. It is a simple place doing simple things well.
