Really enjoy going here for lunch. They have a lot of burger choices that are all very good. They always come out cooked as requested. The servers are always friendly and attentive. I never have a problem getting there and back in my lunch hour.

I've been to many things Fridays and love the restaurant as a whole but the food at this place was terrible. The cheese dip to the beer cheese pretzel wasn't good as it always has been else where. My steak was chewy with lots of...More
