We stop here every time we are in Este Park. We sit at the one outside table even when it's cold outside...haha! Tradition I suppose and it is fun watching the world go by!

Best burgers in town. Always eat here at least once when in town. Only problem was they were out of bacon but it had been a busy weekend.

The fries are quite large, so order accordingly. I didnt eat a sandwich but my husband says the patty melt was delicious.

I don't know what is world famous about a burger and fry joint. The burger's were ok and the fries were good but nothing out of the ordinary. The staff had no patience and the place seemed chaotic. Does not rate better than average.

Was disappointed after all the hype about the great burgers here. Found them to be dry without a lot of flavor. Had to load them up with condiments to add some flavor. Quaint little hole in the wall place.

We had lunch here today and have eaten here in the past as well. The food is fresh and cooked while you wait (not prepared ahead and kept warm ). The burger combo adds fries for just a dollar more. If burgers aren't what you...More

I am not sure. But it's basically burgers and fries. They have beef, bison, elk and turkey burgers. Fries, sweet potato fries and onion rings. It's a small place with a pretty small menu, but it's very good!
