  1. The burger is good but HUGE. The patty is giant. Very nicely cooked, though.

    1. One of the best burgers in the city. Essentially a much bigger version of the Shake Shack burger. The chipotle wings and the beef ribs are my other favorites there.

      1. I too am unimpressed by the bbq and mac & cheese. However, their burgers and sandwiches, particularly the cuban and unsingers bologna are great.

        1. Sweet potato fries are incredible.

          1. Pulled pork is good. I like the hush puppies too. I haven't had the burger, but if it's a bigger version of the Shake Shack burger, I don't think you can go wrong.

            1. I thought their bbq is fine. Just avoid their beef ribs at all cost. They are always dry and tough. Other ribs are quite good!

              I think other hounds already gave you all the good suggestions. If they have a soft shell crab sandwich (seasonal special) definitely order it! It was very good!

              And they have good desserts! You can try to order the dessert sampler if you have enough people, and also the hot fudge brownie sundae. Ok, just the sound of it is tempting enough. How can you screw up a hot fudge sundae? :D

              1. re: kobetobiko

                thanks for the soft shell suggestion
                now i am going !

                they have a special tonite

              2. If you choose to order one dessert, the Sticky Toffee Pudding is the best.

                1. Tried the chipotle wings last time I was there... they are absolutely crazy delicious.
