“Hamburger heaven”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

If you like burgers this will be the place for you. You order like a sushi bar (build your own), just mark the meat, the toppings, the sides and they come by and pick your order up. Understand this is strictly a burger place although they do have turkey burgers, tuna but mostly burgers. Very casual but a fun place to eat.

“Great Hamburgers”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

This should be considered a hamburger restaurant. Their claim to fame is the ability to build your own burger. This not a low cal place. That said if you want a burger this is the place to go.

“Really, just so-so.”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

For all the press, it's just food. Not particularly inspiring, and a bit pricy for all that. Daughter dragged us out on reports, but she agrees, only so-so. Excuse me, Yahoo has erased my Bookmarks Toolbar again. Yahoo is becoming the enemy of the individual. Seek revenge.

“Closed get out!”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

My family tried to eat at Phil's Grill. We had heard nothing but rave reviews from friends. One night after we left the mall we headed over. We walked in behind a party of 4. They seated the first party while we waited. Then nothing for about five min., while the waitress/hostess found 3 other people and whispered something to them. The last person she spoke to came up and said, "Sorry we're closed you have to leave." We were really embarrassed and mad! Friends told us the burger was so good we couldn't let this stop us from trying it. So about a year later we went to the location on Hickory and found the service there better but still mediocre and we have definitely had better burgers! I hear they have a new cook and so we might try again but it's a last chance!
