Very disappointed with out burgers in what is supposed to be THE burger place. Flavorless meet. The lettuce was soggy and brown. The fires had little flavor. This happened twice over a couple of months...I think the place is going down hill

We went this past Sat night with 2 other couples. Had a 20 wait, they don't take reservations or call ahead seating. Sat down, our waitress explained the different burgers and that they are fresh and hand made. I liked the menu as the burger option included "pink" or "no pink". Also if you don't want a bun you can... More

The burgers here are fantastic and the service is always good. I've eaten here many times, but when my Celiac Daughter was craving a good burger I vaguely remembered they had Gluten Free buns so we went. Well not only are the buns GF, but essentially there are about a million items on the menu including multiple appetizers like ONION... More

DELICIOUS!! Not far off the freeway and tucked in a fun neighborhood. The food arrived quickly and was sooo good! Wish we had time to try the signature cocktails but we had to get back to driving to NYC. Will definitely stop again!

Went for an early dinner to watch football and sit at the bar for tasty beer. The bartender knew her stuff. My partner was asking about the beer taste she wanted and the bartender described and provided tastes for a couple of beers that were hard to say which one to start with because both were really good. The burgers... More

Everyone appreciates when they find that one restaurant that when they go in the door the first time; everyone and everything makes them feel as welcome as a long lost family member coming home again. What is amazing is when that place treats you the same way every time you come back, and the food is just as good as... More

Freshly ground meat and never frozen - the way burgers used to be. I had their "3 shrooms" burger - sauteed mushroom, mushroom spread, trufle mayo and swiss cheese which was plentiful and tasty. There is a great selection of bourbon and beer options to quench your thirst. Besides burgers ruling here, there are other non-beef options. The table next... More

Eating at a Plan B is where to go for a really good burger and fries. There other food is okay too, but it's a burger and beer place. It's noisy and sometimes I feel rushed because there are others waiting to be seated, but be assured the food is good.
