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.

The food was good but the service was slow. The server was very nice and attentive. But getting our food was a back of the house problem.

We reserved a table with the idea that we could avoid any kind of wait. However it took over and well over an hour before our food arrived. Luckily the food was great. Not sure if there was a staff shortage going on but if there was they should have reduced the number of tables to serve. Better to wait outside than be stuck at your table.

Hostess was some what rude. Went to seat us and then had a friend show up. So we waited on her to socialize before we were sat. But didn’t let it ruin the night. Server was on top of it. Even let us know they were somewhat busy so the sooner we got our food in the better. Food was phenomenal

The appetizers of fried green tomatoes and Brussels sprouts were delicious. The entrees however unfortunately did not follow with the same level of flavor. The shrimp scampi had absolutely no flavor-asked for parmesan cheese and it did not help. The meatloaf has great reviews but not a fan. Sorry this was such a disappointment. Maybe the burger and fries would have been better but wanted to try something different.

Two menu items, Brussel sprouts & rib tips on the grilled cheese, were described as crispy! Not even close! The bacon on the burgers wasn’t cooked at all. The restaurant was extremely loud, considering the capacity was decreased. The floor was slick and dangerous all the way to the table!

Service was okay, but it was the night before mohers day, so I am sure they were busy. Staff had the dropsies and spilled water and ketchup all over the mother's day gifts. Accidents happen, but they didn't clean the water up well and we ended up with our feet in a puddle the whole time.
Mac and cheese and fries were incredible. Ribeye burger wasnt worth $15, but our bill overall was cheaper than I expected. Cocktail was awesome.
I will return to give it another chance on a slower day.

I had a niece from out of town in for the week and the extended family wanted to get together to spend time with her. Our party of 10 were accommodated outside with tables next to each other. Our server was very good and attentive. We all ordered different menu items (with so many of us, we were able to get a sampling of much of the menu). The good was very good and no one rushed us out as we caught up despite us being the last to leave. My only negative was the only item on the dessert menu was ice cream. Overall, good atmosphere, good food, great time!

The entire night was great. Our table was ready for us. Our server was pleasant and attentive. He let us know that the meal we ordered took extra time to cook but the fried chicken was worth it. Will go again for sure.

I will definitely be back. My family enjoyed it very much. The food was great. My only complaint would be my steak burger was not cook how I asked and the bottom bun was very greasy. Ordered medium and the burger was well done. It was still tasty.

Ranks up there as one of the best cheeseburgers we’ve had. We loved the addition of the Düsseldorf mustard. No doubt...we’ll be back.

Our dinner was great! Service was excellent. Our server was so welcoming & took very good care of our large rowdy group. We were so happy to be out together I know we were a handful but he was very sweet and poised. We also visited the ice cream shop & were warmly received & got excellent service. We love 80/20 Kaelins & will be back!

Great experience upstairs with six adults and four children. We were celebrating birthdays and it was perfect. The waiter and manager were both very accommodating to our needs. We needed the elevator for handicap access and it was no problem getting the manager to assist us. The food was great and came out in a timely manner. We will definitely make a return visit to this restaurant!

Delicious food, friendly service! So happy to have made the choice to come here! I had the deviled eggs as appetizer and had the smoked chicken which was phenomenal! My friends all enjoyed their selections too! I'm gluten free and there were plenty of good options!
