My husband and I went there while traveling. The ambience was great and the service from Jacob was great. He was very attentive the entire time. The burgers were amazing and cooked to temperature.

About the restaurant
My husband Jesse and I began as Grind Gourmet Burger Truck in the Spring of 2012 and by June of 2014 we had grown into a permanent location. We went all in when we moved to a brick and mortar location in the popular NuLu neighborhood and turned it into a thriving restaurant that has received local and national attention. It's our mission to serve a superior, chef-driven burger using the best local and regional ingredients available prepared and served by happy employees that are paid a fair wage. We look forward to sharing our passion for good food and good people with you.

About the restaurant
Welcome to 80/20 @ Kaelins. A new take on the classic restaurant where the cheeseburger was created. A neighborhood spot where anyone is welcome. Bring your family and friends and join us. A great place to watch a game or enjoy some family time. Featuring burgers and classic comfort food and drinks. Try out the 80/20 Malt Shoppe for some house made ice cream or a shake with your burger. Grab a bourbon or local brew to enjoy at the indoor/outdoor bar. Have an evening relaxing on our large patio. Maybe throw a party in one of our private dining areas where we can offer custom menus from casual to upscale.
We would love for you to join us. And we look forward to taking care of you.
Thanks,
80/20 @ Kaelins

A group of friends and neighbors, we meet monthly, and this was our first time here. The pimento cheese balls, hush puppies, and fried pickles were great! 3 got the 80/20 burger, 2 got the patty melts, and 1 got a different burger. All were fantastic.

It ended up being a great Mothers Day. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. They even had a small spot setup for Mother day pics. The food was a tad over priced in my opinion. We will definitely be back.
