I went here solely to try the Elk burger and I was not disappointed. It was delicious. The place is busy and lots of sports on the tvs. Service is quick. Food is tasty.

Good restaurant but food delivery took a long time and that is what kept this from 5 star. Place was busy and lots of people watching opportunities. I had the Albuquerque Turkey sandwich and it was awesome!
