Fodor's Review

The delicious scent of grilling meats will entrance you from blocks away. Latin music blares from the jukebox inside, so after sundown most clients dine at the white plastic tables on the grassy front yard. The charcoal-grilled burgers, which are made of top sirloin, and the french fries, deep-fried zucchini, and baked potatoes are true-to-the-source American treats, but with a twist. The burgers are topped with cabbage, and delicious with the Benton's chipotle sauce that

they bring out with the mustard and ketchup. Try the corn soup served with a generous dollop of sour cream. For dessert there are grilled bananas glazed with cinnamon and sugar and served with fresh cream.

Terrible burgers

I went there after reading about how great the burgers were. Greasy fries, overcooked meat, this place was horrible!

Used to be better - still good service.

This place used to have the best hamburgers. Period. They still have pickled vegetables (very spicy) that are great, friendly service, but one can get a burger just about anywhere that is as good or better. I don't know what happened to it. If you travel that way, ask around, if they someday return to previous levels, definitely try it.

Gotta have a Burger?

Family atmosphere. Outdoor shaded seating. Great burger and fries. A nice break from the local fare. Highly recommended!
