    Very disappointing experience. We decided to eat here after seeing the reviews, and it did not live up to expectations. The burgers were sub par and not even what I would call ok, and the fries and onion rings were so salty that it was difficult to eat them. We didn't eat most of the food. Not to mention, the wine list (glass) was one of the worst I have seen. It was not busy at all, and now I know why.

    7 of us were booked for fathers day and they broke us up between 2 tables due to covid restrictions. I wish I took pictures of the food but everyone dove in before I could. For apps we had: Beef tartare, jerk & BBQ wings, philly cheese steak spring rolls, and buffalo cauliflower. For mains: Mburger classic, going back to cali, premium mushroom swiss, the purist, house cobb salad and I added deep fried pickles (OMG - best I ever had). Dessert: Lucha libre shake and preemo cookies 'n cream shake. Everyone enjoyed the burgers, as they were massive with double patties, some had the normal fries and some subbed for sweet potato. The only comment was my mom like chipotle with her sweet potato fries, but they were still great. Overall food was fantastic & the service was amazing (thanks kesley), but next time i'll opt for the burger over the salad.
