Casual dining at this burger and shake joint. You place your order and pay simultaneously and then they call you once the order is ready. There is seating both inside and outside. Based on the queues this is a very popular eatery. Worth a try...More

It's ok but with just a little bit, they can be good or really good (if they work on some points): 1. The Fries are really good. Please don't change this! 2. The burgers are good, but for me they use too much oil to...More

These burgers are fantastic - better than In-N-Out I think. The fries are good - not the best, not better than MACDONS fresh and hot - but good. The shakes (I had a strawberry) was very good - much better than MACDONS. Overall, very good...More
