“Great creative menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Everything my boyfriend and I ate here was delicious!
The draft beer selection was a nice mix of local beers that not every other bar on Market Street has.
We enjoyed every last bite of our build your own burgers. Topping selections were creative and serving size was generous.
Service at ye door and at the bar were both spot on.
I'll be back!

“Every item was prepared flawlessly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

We all built our own burgers and we each though ours was top notch. Well cooked meat, each to our unique tastes, and the toppings were extremely fresh, well prepared and tested excellent. We had the sweet potato fries too, which were crisp, not over salted, and came with a unique sauce that even I (who doesn't prefer horseradish) liked. Not cheap, by any means, but worth the money. Wish they offered a smaller size burger in the build-your-own menu.

“Fantastic Build-Your-Own Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

About the best burger I've ever had. You select the type of roll, toppings, cheese, how well-done, etc. Excellent draft beers including a locally brewed ale. And the fries / onion strings were superb. They also have bison and turkey burgers.Very generous serving sizes and reasonably priced. Attentive and friendly wait staff.

“Good process, good burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

Walk in and as your seated your server presents you with a form to fill out to order your burger. You select the protein, toppings, sauces, cheeses, etc for your burger creation. They also have so preselected burgers to choose from. Great local craft beers are available along with some OK wines. I would have liked to see expanded wine options. Maybe some local Texas selections. The burger was cooked the way I ordered it and tasted great. I'll come back again with the family. The seating area wasn't big so I suspect that it will be crowded on the weekends. Seems like a great place for weekday dining.

While on Market Street this is a good place to have a burger with fries for lunch. The burgers are well done and very tasty.
