Review: This has that intangible goodness that burger lovers are always chasing. The burger is well cooked with fresh toppings but their house 1000 island is really what brings it all together to make the burger great. It falls apart halfway through and is a little bit pricier than you’d expect a diner meal to be but you’re paying for an experience as well, and I really recommend it.

Look at that rainbow!
