THE MENU

Grass-fed beef burgers top the menu in lots of varieties or make-your-own style, which can be chicken-breast, veggie or turkey burgers. Fries offer variety too, from the classic, with a crisp exterior and creamy interior, to sweet potato, disco (brown gravy and mozzarella) and Chilltown (chili, cheese, bacon and jalapeños). In addition to burgers are salads such as kale caesar and Tex Mex. Bar bites include the usual suspects—chicken fingers, Buffalo wings and nachos—but also refreshing offerings like fried pickles and fried mac and cheese pops.

HEADS UP

Servings are sufficient, but not oversized. Daily happy hour from 4 to 7 pm features drink specials. Half a dozen beers are on tap, plus bottles.
