I am torn between giving three stars and four stars. Since I can't give three and a half, I'll give them a four for freshness. First, this is a very small roadside grill. There is a bit of seating inside (seats 12 or so), but there is more seating outside in a courtyard-type area. The main basis of the restaurant seems to be to keep it small. Family owned, family operated. Service was fine. Because they are family owned, their business hours are a bit choppy. We've driven across town on several occasions, just to find that they were closed. When they are open, it is only for the lunch ""hour"" and dinner ""hours"".
The bad and good; Sodas were bottled (plastic) and warm. The good; we were given cups of ice to cool the drink down. The bad; because the drinks were warm, this just made them watery.
I considered ordering the Teriyaki burger, but ordered the green chile cheese burger instead. The good; It still came with Teriyaki on it. The bad; wayyyyy too much Teriyaki on it. It was drenched, and dripping, and overwhelming.
The Green Chile Cheese burger was really good and tasty. As stated above it was drenched in Teriyaki sauce. Burger was very well done, just the way I like it. The bun was very good and seemed homemade. The bad; Burger did not come with fries, you had to order them separately. The good; The fresh cut homemade fries were really good.
Like I said, I would rather give this restaurant 3 1/2 stars, but because it wasn't awful, and because it was basically good - just could use some improvements - and mostly because the food was fresh (not frozen microwaved junk), I'm giving them 4 instead of 3. Also, restaurant could be cleaner. Would like to see some expansion and improvements... but, being on the far side of town with neighborhoods on one side that wouldn't pay $7 for a burger, and neighborhoods on the other side that wouldn't want to lower themselves to a burger...it would probably be very hard to keep busy enough to keep it going. So... accept it for what it is, a small family owned roadside grill... and you'll like it for a decent burger every now and again....
