The GOOD: We were surprised to find out there was no counter service here - they actually had wait staff. There was a drink dispenser within view and, you have to walk to a register to actually pay so, I'm guessing the wait staff is for dinner only. The service was surprisingly very, very good. Dianna and I both ordered burgers stuffed with grilled onions and cheese. I went with American and she tried the cheddar. The kaiser like buns were great as were the fresh veggies. The patty quality was good, too, although it felt a little less than the advertised 8 ounces. Saying that it was fresh - it has to be because of the stuffing options. We all left stuffed anyways. On the way out I noticed an old CD jukebox with a very eclectic mix. It was pre-loaded with credits. The girls were fascinated with the jukebox. We let them flip through the CD selections. All-in-all we probably stood at the jukebox for about ten minutes playing a couple of tunes.
Note - if you order grilled onions as your stuffing be sure to mark the order sheet 'no' on the regular onions. Also, ask for the mustard to be put on the side - I like mustard but the version used here is extra stout.

This was ordered well but, still had some red near the stuffing
Note-this photo was taken after Dianna added ketchup
The BAD: Our burgers were accompanied by some very average (seasoned) food service steak fries. Not terribly bad - just love fresh cut potatoes. Next time we will try the home battered onion rings.
The UGLY: I mentioned that we picked up a to go menu two weeks prior to this visit. The burgers have increased in price 20%. I'm guessing the owners are first time restauranteurs - that's just too big of a mistake for seasoned operators. Also, we ordered the patties well-done. If you look a the photo above you'll notice some red near the middle of the patty. I don't know if the stuffing caused the cook some difficulty or what but, next time I will go stuff-less and just have them top the patty with the cheese and grilled onions.
This was a good burger; definitely better than Ted E's. Price wise they are a little high considering the location and what it is. Dinner for the four us about $32 after tip and the includes the girls ordering kid's meals.
