Notes

This place gets rave reviews.

And rightly so! I like it! The 100-percent Angus burger with the blue cheese was quite yummy, service was good, and the ambience in the off-rush hour was really laid-back and mellow. However, as good as the food is, the place likely to be mobbed if you go there during the lunch rush. Drop in in the mid-afternoon when it's not so crowded and take your time perusing the extensive selection of sauces and condiments. All of the condiments such as the mustard and chunky mild salsa were extremely fresh and top-quality. The mac-and-cheese was, for my tastes, a bit bland, but as advertised it was extremely cheesy, and I love cheesy. Thomas Hardman 21:19, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

I have been back and had the Angus burger with chili, the so-called "Blazin' Saddles" style. The side of fries I ordered with it was far to large to eat at one sitting in the restaurant, so they kindly provided a "doggie bag". I must point out that I know good chili, and the chili on that burger is just about exquisite.Thardman 22:23, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I have now had every kind of burger topping they have here. They're all excellent. So far, I'm of about equal opinion on all of them, all different, all good. I'm leaning towards the "So-Cal", as it really brings out the taste of the Angus beef. By the way, I don't know where they get the bacon for their burgers, nor how they cook it, but it's without a doubt the best bacon I have ever had, on a burger, or otherwise.

My advice is to try the specials when they have them. One slightly off-menu item, the Angus burger with blue cheese, wings-sauce, and slab bacon, is my new favorite thing in life. If it's not on special, ask if they'll serve you one, if that's the sort of thing you like. Thardman 20:49, 25 May 2009 (EDT)

Timing Is Everything: If you want to have a change to sit down and have a nice leisurely meal, probably the best afternoon time is between about 1:30 and 2:30. When school lets out, the place is mobbed with teenagers. So far, no food fights, but it's probably just a matter of time. Alternatively, try coming in for a late dinner.
