This restaurant is a little area of a renovated garage. Bar tables and low key. The burger was fantastic! The price affordable and the wait staff friendly.

On Monday night there are not many dining options...we found this one, a small place for the locals with a nice menu and some good beer options.

Love to drop in for a beer or glass of wine and some of their Teryaki wings! I've tried everything on the menu and love it all.

Burnsville, as charming as it is, seems to suffer from a lack of charming dining spots.

We selected Snap Dragon on the advice of a friend after she suggested this was one of the few area restaurants serving alcoholic beverages other than beer and wine.

The menu is pub food—burgers and related. The calamari starts out frozen, so that was a no-go. My husband had a cheeseburger, and I had the “cannonballs”—four huge pork meatballs topped with canned crushed pineapple—and no sides whatsoever. Both meals had meat from Hickory Nut Gap, a big plus. My husband’s French fries were “mushy” in the middle; they were either too thick or hadn’t been sufficiently cooked.

Our order was taken quickly by a server who was pleasant but clearly rushed. I wasn’t asked if I wanted any side dish, and I had to ask for water three times. We weren’t asked if we wanted drink refills. When it came to getting the check, the cash register was malfunctioning.

The noise level was definitely too high to hold a pleasant conversation—surprising as the entire front side is open to the street.

Neat little restaurant with a diverse crowd and a full bar! Had a hamburger, fries and a kale salad. And a margarita:)

Didn’t disappoint- by far the best meal we had in Burnsville
