Foursquare Tips

  • Coolest part was seeing the owner coming out from behind the kitchen and talking and thanking the customers and interacting with the people making his business thrive.
  • Very good burger. The price to food ratio is dead on. Not the most sublime burger I've ever had, but in the top tier. If you can find parking, you should go!
  • Paco has some nice heat. Get a to-go order and head around the corner to Beer Study for a beer with your meal.
  • Everything on the menu is good. I always get the Classic (Al size) and the Rosemary fries (the small size is plenty for me) ...SO good.
  • Vegetarians - You can get any burger you want as a veggie burger. Want some heat, try the veggie Paco-style.
  • Put the Mookie in your mouth right now
  • Great veggie burger
  • Bombastic burgers! Sit outside at the picnic tables and make new friends
  • Awesome vibe and burgers.
  • The hot dogs here are the best in town.
  • Buns is better!
  • Everything you want a burger #FoodieScore to be
  • Excellent, big burgers! The rosemary fries are fantastic.
  • Top choice!
  • Classic burger, fries
  • Great food!
  • The crinkle cut fries with rosemary are great. My Classic burger was juicy, and I liked the Al's sauce. The Kaarin (vegetarian) burger was too mushy and fell apart.
  • The best burgers in town, possibly the best burgers in North Carolina!
  • Burgers and a milkshake!
  • Lots of outdoor seating
