    We all loved the onion rings and house-made ketchup. My Valencia Salad totally hit the spot (really great White Balsamic-Orange Vinniagrette dressing, too). My friends enjoyed their BRU Hot Chicken sandwich, though one friend said his sandwich wasn't "hot" at all, other than its temperature. Excellent service. Got a nice table by the window. Overall, this was a really nice experience.

    Food is consistently very good in the Burgers category. Service was exceedingly slow. Not sure if it was a factor, but I saw a huge carry out order go out during the time we were waiting. If I’m seated I really don’t care about your carry out. I have a service expectation and it wasn’t met. Our server tried and apologized many times.

    This was our first trip. We heard it was good, but very expensive so we went this week during burger week and we got the beginning burger for just about half price at seven dollars. The real treat was an order of fries for only two dollars. The hamburger was exceptional! Plenty juices and lots of toppings. The fries were also very good. Add an average of $14 a burger that’s expensive but the burger is good as it should be.

    I am never disappointed with the food or drink. Service is almost always good. Sadly the inside is much too loud for me to enjoy my meal there with someone else (especially at dinner). Therefore, I try to avoid the place unless I know I can eat outside.

    Great salads, as always, but my burger was not up to par with the usual one served. Last nights was dry, tough and not very hot. It was underwhelming! Typically they are great but maybe this one sat under a heat lamp too long or something.
