Visited for a business trip, this place reminds me a 50's burger restaurant. Burgers and lobster roll amazing, service very good. Thanks to our waitress who made the night even better. Suggested for central location close to Prudential Centre. See you again

The price is a little expensive for a decent burger (5 Napkins Burger) costs USD15/-. However, the service and ambience are good.
