Might need to be a Farmington resident to get why anybody loves this place so much? Tried it 20 years ago and didn't remember...was in the area and gave it another try. Unfortunately it's the last, nothing overtly offensive, just not very good, kinda grungy well. Cheeseburgers were slider standard. Fries were dried out and unappealing. Server was super kind and attentive and the tip reflected it. It's cheap, greasy and might be a "have to" for some. Me? I'll take Bates Burger's over it any day.
Must have in Farmington. It's just that simple. 2 thumbs up. You won't go wrong grabbing a bite to eat here.
As someone who loves a good burger, places like this are always on my list. I have been meaning to try this place out for a while, but haven't been on this side of town for some time. I finally had the chance to stop in, and I was pleasantly surprised.
Walking in, it's like the other "old school" burger joints that I have been too before. Small, intimate, with limited seating and menu items. I kind of knew what to expect, but wasn't sure how it would hold up to other places I have been to in the past.
I got two cheeseburgers with a Sprite. The guy who waited on me was working the whole place pretty much by himself and seemed to do a good job. My food came out quick, and I really loved the burgers! I was secretly eyeing the guy's onion rings next to me but didn't feel like an entire plate so I passed.
Overall, I really loved it here. It seemed to hit the spot, and I had a good time. So why 4 stars instead of 5 you say? Well, for starters, I saw a note on the door that you are allowed only two soft drinks (your original one and one refill.) while you dine here. I found that odd. Rationing fountain pop? Stupid.
Second thing was, they are basically the same burgers that Telway serves, menu, presentation, size and all. why would I drive all the way here when I have a Telway and a hunter house in Birmingham? I wouldn't and that's the problem. I think it's a great place to dine, but there's no way I'm doubling my commute to go to this specific location.
Overall, I really liked it here, and when I'm on this side of town, I will gladly return to dine here.
