This long-underutilized venue, catty-corner from the KAEF studios and the SBDC office, opened to what have been pretty close to rave reviews. They’ve been open since Hallowe’en and are owned by the same wonderful lady, Christine, who brought us the Humboldt Soup Company. I finally got there Thursday.
We arrived at 130 and the place was pretty empty, which was a good thing because the seating is extremely uncomfortable- we had a choice between high barstools that I couldn’t even sit in and rickety seats at a wobbling table. We snagged one of the banquettes and things immediately improved.
I had the blue cheese burger, which I ordered well-done. I usually don’t worry about degree of doneness with a burger- it’s a burger, right?- but at this place they ASK you how you want it. Mine was pretty darned pink for well-done but I ate it; it was basically an excellent burger. But the surprise was the onion rings. They were THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. I hope it wasn’t a fluke. They were crispy, light. Just incredible.
My friend had a plain burger which she enjoyed and she also thought the rings were incredible. They also have fish tacos and a lamb burger- lots to explore on future visits.
No website. Like a lot of restaurants locally they are trying to get by with just a Facebook page. Get a website, folks. You’re ready.
