“It's is a burger place”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

There is nothing special or spectacular about BTS. It does a good job fitting into the "high end" burger fad. The burgers were good and properly cooked. The brioche buns were fresh. Fries were lacking. The grasshopper shake was also good but not special. The place is one of the few places in the area that is even vaguely is kid friendly. The best burger was a blue cheese, mushroom bacon burger and the bacon on that burger was special.

“Good fresh burgers”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

This is a "order at the counter" restaurant and you just seat and service yourself. So it does not score points for its service. But the food itself are freshly cooked and nice, so I still rewarded four stars.

“Great at the basics”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

This place serves the best onion rings I've ever had. The burgers are very good as well. I had the Southern Comfort, and aside from stacking the pickles so that they were all in one ( or two ) bites, it was a great burger. There is bar service, with 2 choices of wine, white or red. But this is a burger joint, and rightfully so the burger is the star. Be forewarned, medium rare is on the very rare side.

“Was not impressed”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Average burger and staff was subpar. First experience there and I was rushed to decide with no one behind me waiting to order. Staff member was more interested in her fellow teammates than explaining the menu or options. Ordered 2 basic burgers and fries.
