“Good burger Dirty Restaurant!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Had a hard time rating this one. First thing we noticed when we walked in was a terrible smell just like a sewer, not kidding. The floors were filthy and the rest of the place was pretty much the same and needing some serious updating and tlc. The smell got so bad that we asked to get our food to go after a few minutes, my husband guessed it was a bad sewer drain. We both ordered the Millie Burger, the signature burger of the place with fries on the side. Once we fled and got to our hotel we were both impressed with the taste, definitely unique with the green chile, something you won't find at chain. The fries were okay, probably would have been better if the grease had been newer than that was used on them. Would give the food by itself a B+. Unfortunately, I can't recommend the place because of the cleanliness and smell issues.

“The burgers we had were the tastiest, best looking, most enjoyable we have ever had!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Don't miss eating here. Not only was our order taken promptly by a friendly waitress, our delicious burgers and amazing home style French fries were served super hot. The four of us each had something different and they were all Yummy. You could tell, the owner, a friendly family man, really wanted us to like our meal. He came out from the kitchen to ask us if we liked our burgers--not just the typical "how is everything" comment usually asked. our burgers were put together with an ample amount of tasty toppings(no skimping here) and served with thick, perfectly cooked homestead French fries, yum!
Please, go out of your way to visit this restaurant.

“Great burgers!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

Don't be fooled by the appearance of the place. It's a hole in the wall and could be hard to find. (It's at the location of the old Uranium Cafe of Route 66 fame)
But the food is excellent. Incredible burgers (I had the Millie) dripping with sauces and toppings. In one word AMAZING!
Few vegetarian options are nice for non burger eaters.

“DID NOT DISAPPOINT!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Chose this "hole in the wall" restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Each of the four of us in our group chose a different burger from the menu and all were well pleased. Without a doubt the best burger anytime, anywhere!

“If you hungry for a great burger in Grants this is the place.”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Stopped here for lunch after a gorgeous fall drive up Mt. Taylor near Grants. Went here because it was rated #1 in Grants by Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. I had the Millie's Burger which was a huge 2 patty burger. Very tasty and satisfying. The fries also were just right. Not greasy and fresh tasting. Not a fancy place but you come here for good food and that's what you get.
