Decent burger, but not great.
After seeing all the raves for this place we went to give it a try.

It's a good burger, but not 4 or 5 stars worth of burger. The patty was thin and didn't have much flavor, like it had been frozen. The vegetables were decently fresh, but someone had put onions in the lettuce (we asked for no onions) but not that big a deal. It was cooked right, but somehow lacking that good broiled flavor.
The interior oozes 70s hole-in-the-wall. It's looking long in the tooth, there's no windows, overhead florescent lights don't help much. But somehow, it's so run down, it totally works and makes you smile a little bit.
Onion rings were from Sysco foods I think, as are the crinkle cut fries. At least the fries are cooked until crispy.
My dining partner said it tasted a lot like Whataburger, she was right. Whataburger makes a good burger, but not worth driving across town for one.
Pros: Worn out building has 70s charm, ok burger, ok fries
Cons: boring onion rings, ok burger, ok fries, not worth the hype
