I have definitely had a better burger. It tasted weird and I just wasn't impressed with this over priced burger. The staff was slow and that was with very few people there. They weren't as friendly either. I would not go back

I don't have a clue. I suggest you call the restaurant and get the first hand scoop on their MSG usage.
