Hamburguers are the best!!! The taste is so good and the sizes too! If you don't eat a lot, please share the hamburguers, if you don't.. just enjoy it! The sandwiches are great too.. and the fries! Oh God... there are perfect.

Went here for lunch and was not disappointed. The burgers were huge! To be honest, 2 persons could eat one between them. We ordered the camote fries and they were chunky and delicious. Quick, efficient and great service with a smile. Need to go back!
