Entirely sufficient, I had the signature burger and salad. The food was good but it fell short of the "cool vibe" the atmosphere strives to impart. Service was ok while pricing reflected the trendy aura that was promoted. Ultimately, if looking cool is your goal, this may be your place.

We saw good and bad reviews. So glad we came. Had the smash burger and it was delicious and so unique. Best burger ever. We plan to come back for dinner where we can pick from their awesome aged selection of meat. Had a great time. Highly recommend.

My family and I stopped here while driving through town. I saw what great reviews it got on trip advisor. My husband and I love a good burger. The sign on the front door said it was voted the best. I would like to know buy whom? It was not a bad but really not close to the best. The... More

Pork belly bun...the meat is crispy on the outside and unctious inside with mild saltiness. Great hoisin sauce and thin sliced cucumber. Best item on the menu. BElvis burger is coarse ground flavorful meat with creamy pimento cheese, pork belly, sweet and savory sauces and soft ciabatta bun. It is a mix of restaurant and store with a service a... More

This was my 5th visit. I've tried to understand why people like this place. The service has ranged from aloof kids to overwhelmed workers. The food? Inconsistent. Smash burger tastes strange at best. Had 3 of them. Is STERNO the magic ingredient? On 2 visits, I was grateful the Zapp's chips were as expected. I took different people to each... More

Have been in many times but never left review. Good as always. Taco special of the day is almost always awesome choice and if it doesnt sound appetizing, the "best burger in America" is quite a backup plan! Casual to say least-you want a drink, just grab one. Service is fast and friendly. A little pricy, but with local sourced... More

First of all, they do Not offer a large variety of food for lunch, the atmosphere is ok, the music was Loud & the speakers had a crappy sound. Our food was good, but we were Not impressed at all. The Blue Canoe has a basic burger that Slams the 'famous' Smash Burger - tried part of one last year... More

After reading about this place my wife and I made a detour to try it. While the Smashburger was good I cannot rate it higher than good. The staff were very nice and they have an amazing meat market. For $10 for the burger alone I expected a little more. The quality of the ciabatta bun and toppings are top... More

Visiting for the Auburn v Ole Miss game. The friendly service, atmosphere, and fabulous Famous Smash burger is so worth stopping for.

Meat and lots of it. A top-notch butcher shop that also sells fresh made burgers, beers, boutique groceries, etc. Nice Tupelo-meets-Brooklyn atmosphere.

I reviewed this restaurant on Yelp and Urban Spoon. I tried to add it to trip advisor the other day, but I didn't hear anything back, and it's not on your site. You can check it out at their Facebook page, Neon Pig Cafe.
