1/2/19 - This place tried to kill me with bacon. Challenge accepted. When I asked for a cheeseburger with bacon, I was a little put off by the added price. They did not skimp. There was a wad, and that's not an exaggeration, a wad of bacon as thick as the patty. This burger made me grow a mustache and start spouting libertarian political philosophy. It should be eaten with 16 year old Single Malt Scotch. Its threatening, but only because it wants to make a man out of you. Damn that was one fine burger.

11/18/18 - Great food and great staff. I didn't expect this place to be much walking in but couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Filling out a form to order was a bit odd but the food was great!

12/18/18 - I've eaten more burgers than most people. I'm part German and we know good burgers. This place blew me away. I love that I get to pick my favorite toppings and Mike doesn't hold back. He respects a customer with a good appetite and makes sure you're happy. His jokes are as fresh as his food! Make sure you don't skip the fries. They rock too!

6/15/2017 - 5.0 star rating This place is a dive to say the least. If the walls could talk they would tell quite the story. Here is the thing. The Burger that you can build..... really is one of the best around. Juicy, fat burger that comes out perfectly cooked. Want it Medium Rare? No problem. Five guys cooks them well done no matter what. The fries are also fresh cut and cooked perfectly. This is your local bar and they love you for it. They serve a single order of soda in a small bar pitcher filled with ice lol I have left a phone and a credit card behind at this place. It was there when I returned. Skip the chains and go get a real burger, it cost more but it is completely worth it. They also have a cool backyard patio with horseshoe pits too. If you don't want a burger they have other sandwich options. Not sure I will ever order anything else though

12/9/2017 -It is definitely a dive bar - but that is no bad thing! There's a spacious covered deck out back with wood and plastic tables - clearly the smoking area, and with parking lots on either side, but still green and relatively peaceful, especially in the middle of the day. I enjoyed feeling a breeze and listening to birdsong while I ate my lunch. The food was very good! Burger was cooked right, and the topping choices were diverse and delicious. When I looked at the menu, I thought the price for added bacon ($3) was kind of steep, but when the burger came out, I understood why. There were probably 6 full slices of bacon on top of it! The other toppings I ordered were also plentiful. The fries were hot and fresh, and the drink I ordered was indeed served in a mini pitcher. I really just glanced at the rest of their menu, but it looks like they have about a dozen different kind of chicken wings, so wing-lovers take note. The service was great! The waiter doubled as the cook, and was super friendly and accommodating. If you feel like going to a no-frills bar with great burgers and service, you couldn't do better than this place.
