Went there for lunch today. Ordered a burger called the Triple Throw Down. It was described as a beef burger with bacon and blue cheese, horseradish sauce and caramelized onions.

They were out of blue cheese so gave me a choice of feta or white cheddar. I chose the white cheddar and ordered it without the horseradish sauce. I also ordered a mix of fries and onion rings they call half and half.

It came out with horseradish sauce, so I sent it back. The kitchen wiped off part of the sauce and sent it back out. I sent it back a second time and asked them to please get me a burger without the sauce. I could see the kitchen manager through the window and he didn't seem too happy to see my burger back for a second time. But he sent another out right away.

The flavor was good but the burger was cooked well done, gray and dry. Not at all juicy. Why is it so difficult to get a burger in Tallahassee that is pink and juicy? The bacon, cheese and onions were a good complement to the burger.The bun was tasty and held up to the toppings well.

The fries and rings were crispy and very good.

I know they are still working out kinks so I'll give them another try in a few days.
