The burgers were fine but nothing spectacular. The fries were very good. The service was slow and the bathrooms lacked paper-towels. It got busy at lunchtime, but we were still able to find a place to sit. I probably wouldn't return.

Cooked to order but took 20 minutes and it wasn't busy. They also need better ventilation because you leave there smelling like the food. Not a good thing if you're heading out afterwards...find a Shake Shack
