  1. I passed by this place yesterday and was curious about it.

    "Beer chocolate chili"? That sounds intriguing enough to get as a topping. I might spit it out, but I do want to taste it.

        I put cocoa powder in my chili all the time. I've also used beer in it. So this is not really some sort of revelation.

          Well you order a double burger with fresh ground beef (think 80/20 min fat, bacon, cheese, and caramelized onions) and don't think its gonna be greasy?
          Went to today, good burger, loved the flavour. I only had a cheeseburger with onions, mustard and ketchup with fries. Only wish they had relish, as a condiment. (what is so wrong with it on a burger? BP guy is ridiculous about it, hint you're not in the US anymore).
          Liked the fries but could of done with a little less herb flavouring, but that's just me. They were nice and crispy and really liked them.
          I'm a great fan of gridled burgers with fresh meat, given a choice I'd prefer Burger Priest but this is great alternative if you are sick of charbroiled frozen patties. Actually there is no choice if your option is frozen.

            1. I ate there with my husband last week. Super-delicious. The burgers were fresh and juicey and meaty…the way a burger should be. I had mine with cheese, chipotle mayo, and the best carmalized onions I've had in a loooong time. I really hope people visit this place so it stays around for a while. I know I'll be back.
