This used to be my favorite burger and milkshake joint in downtown Greensboro. The "Joel Burger" (homemade pimento cheese, bacon with lettuce and tomato) can't be beat, but now it's not even on the menu. Why do good things have to change?

First time visit. Fries are cut fresh. Sandwich was very stuffed. Service was superb. Ice is finely crushed. Nothing bad to say at all. Will be back for sure.

We paid $30.00 for two average burgers, fries and drinks. Nothing special about this burger joint. It's been around for a while.

I have always loved me a good Fincastles....what I have loved even more was the amazing fried pickles dipped in Fin Sauce. Now those things are still enjoyable and well worth the visit. However I do miss the previous owner ....

I dropped in here for a quick bite after the first place I walked in stunk to high heaven. No greeting and the workers looked like they were either annoyed or just unfriendly. I was running short of time, so I stayed and ordered a...More

We think pricey for what you get...most of the menu could easily be made at home. For us, the place seems messy and noisy...maybe we are the wrong "demographic". Nothing special here...more of a novelty than a real food experience.
