“Odd little out of the way place...out of this world food !!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We were looking for a different place to go for lunch in Knoxville...someone had heard of this place and their reputation for great burgers...so we decided to try. It is located up Broadway not far from Fountain City. The location is easy to find but don't expect to be blown away by anything upscale...it reminds me of the old Vic & Bill's on campus.

They have a varied menu...burgers to full plate meals. We choose the burgers, OHHHH and the fries. I ordered the single barrel hamburger with bacon ranch fries. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!!! We walked away totally full and satisfied...be prepared to pay a little more for a burger and fries...but it was worth the trip.

“Unusual name for great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

Got a flyer in the mail to try out a new place in Halls, TN recently. Finally got over the hill headed that way to try it out. I had the buffalo tenders basket & he had a slaw dog. The tenders were amazing - unique breading on the chicken and wonderful buffalo sauce with lots of flavor without being so hot there was no flavor. His dog was generous & there were several add-ons to choose from to personalize your selection. We shared the portion of fries that came with my basket, & he ended up wishing he had ordered his own side of fries. They had excellent flavor & were cooked just right. We would recommend this place to anyone!
