Was SOOOO excited about this place opening. I was really hoping it would be a Kerby Lane-ish place that serves breakfast lunch food, but no...sigh.

Ends up this place has a very limited menu, which isn't bad in and of itself. Much rather you do a couple of things really well rather than try to be everything to everyone. However, this was also not the case.

Layout is like a 50's burger place with a main bar where you order. Your choices are either a "fatty" or a "flatty" - a grilled or a griddled burger. You also have a choice of a couple of sandwiches (turkey, ham, etc.). There were three tv's inside and a couple of booths and tables, but we opted to go outside.

They have a nice deck, considering the lack of room, that wraps around the building, which was quite pleasant until the wave of families with screaming banshi children arrived (but I digress).

I got the fatty loaded with swiss and hubbers got the flatty with cheddar. Although the buns were nicely toasted, the patties were pre-form frozen and lacked any real flavor. Both were just bland, boring burgers. Fries were home made and were seasoned (kinda on the fattish side), but again, nothing worth coming back again. They boasted home made chips but neither of us got them.

On the positive side, this place is absolutely going to be another "Waterloo of Westlake" and be another Chuck E Cheese-esk madhouse, so no real loss for us. He's actually quite smart and must know this - he's charging $3 for beer and $6.50 for wine.

Just wish someone would cater to the childfree to hang out on the patio and enjoy an adult beer-vrage.
