Does great burgers & very acceptable non meat alternative for the vegetarian in our party. Service was super slick and friendly. All this in a relaxed atmosphere with music spanning the decades.

Description
We are a burger restaurant in Rye serving beef and potatoes from our own farm, just four miles away. We also serve awesome Aussie import the FreakShake. These babies have to be seen (and sampled) to be believed! No bookings.
