“Disappointed after the reviews”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We read so many good reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor. Have to say I was disappointed after all of the positive reviews.
The place is a little drive thru/dive type place which is what we expected and that part of it has nothing to do with the review. In fact I think that adds to experience of a good burger joint.
The food was the main disappointment. My burger was average at best. Not bad, but just nothing special. Patties were a bit dry, toppings were generic. Bun was good. They completely messed up my wifes burger. Bacon and tomato was missing as were the extra pickles. Fries were nothing special too. I get the feeling that they struggle with being busy and keeping organized. They talk a lot, but I can see that they don't focus on the orders and getting them done and sent out quickly. And they were definitely busy.
It was OK, but having ate there, I would not exit off the highway to go there.
Didn't try the milkshakes, lactose intolerant. Supposedly they are really good.

“Fabulous food and even better milkshakes”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This may be just a little stop but the menu has quite a bit of variety and every thing I tasted was great. The milkshakes are absolutely the best in the Pendleton area. thick, rich and a multitude of flavors.

“Long Wait, Greasy Food”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Had to wait almost 20 minutes.....yes, they had 3 people working, but they were messing around more than fixing the orders.

“Great Burger on a Sad Bun”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

The burger part was great! Lived up to the reputation, but the bun wow. Spend a little more and get a quality bun to match that burger!
