    I really like their burgers, although they don't get universally favorable reviews on here. My favorite combination is a beef burger with sauteed onions, sauteed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and creole aioli.

      Also good: beef, creole aioli, tomato, romaine, blue cheese and avocado.

      I usually do pickup orders from Phil's, and one thing I will say is that they don't always pay attention to the details on these orders. I'll ask for extra sauce and won't get it. I'll say Texas toast and they'll give me a regular bun [although the bun was good anyway]. It's little things, but for a place that is famous for letting customers build their own burgers, it's annoying.

      Only bad thing is the parking when it gets busy.

        Agree with Shanefink, the parking can get really bad when it's busy and I usually park next to the BSI comics across the street. Overall pretty decent burgers, but can take a while to get your food. Service is so so.

          Another minus--it is often jam-packed with kids and can get very noisy.
