Inviting eatery turning out hamburgers & many craft beers in a brick-walled space with a patio.- Google
"Very nice beer selection with some high-end beers along with local brews."
"The swiss cheese on the wild mushroom and swiss burger was grainy."

Just went here for the first time. Was spectacular! The food is high quality that you can taste. It's not your average burger place! Love love loved the black onions on my burger. Yummy! Also our server lauren was the sweetest! She not only knew the menu like a boss but was engaging and super sweet to my 4 year old. Thanks for the amazing food and service. Best burger I have ever tasted!!

It's absolutely ridiculous they only cook the burgers pink or no pink ie bloody or way overcooked. It's a great bar but the burgers are overrated and overpriced, meat doesn't have a lot of flavor to it and what's with the anchioves on the Caesar salad? Disgusting and I'm pretty sure if you ask for no anchioves they just take them off an already made salad so you can still taste it. However minus the anchioves it's the best Caesar salad I've ever had, good place but definitely underachieving in several ways.

This is not your average burger. They have lots of different types of burgers. Not to mention in a great location. Best burger bar in Charlottesville.

Terrible food and experience. We had to wait half an hour to be seated, once we were told our table was ready we were told again to sit and wait. After we finally got a table it took another 10 minutes before we ever saw our waitress. Then it took another 15min before we actually got our drinks. They brought a dirty wine bottle of warm tap water and two glass, one of which had someones old lipstick prints still on it. We were never bought utensils or napkins, we had to get up and find someone to ask for napkins. Seriously. The food took forever to come out and was mediocre at best. The burgers were bland and unseasoned. The swiss cheese on the wild mushroom and swiss burger was grainy. I don't even know how you manage to find cheese with a grainy texture. The "black onion" on that burger was also just a 1/2 inch thick slice of onion burned beyond recognition. It was disgusting. All in all a terrible, extremely overpriced experience. We will NEVER go back.

A delicious, though messy, meal. I got "The Chicken Sandwich" (a grilled chicken sandwich with BBQ sauce) and found it delicious, though when paired with fries the meal was incredibly salty. Luckily our waiter was attentive enough to leave a nice large bottle of water at the table to quench our thirst. My partner got their vegan patty, which she says was surprisingly good, though unfortunately they were out of the vegan buns so she had to get it as a lettuce wrap. Our waiter was nice enough to check in with the kitchen about allergies, which we definitely appreciated.

Best burger bar in Charlottesville! They even do vegi-burgers right! I have never left disappointed! The wait time is normally about half that of what they give you and they even call you on your phone when your table is ready!

My girlfriend and I don't eat beef but every once in a blue moon. So this was a treat for her and I. The burgers are huge and reasonably priced. I like how you can create your own burger masterpiece as an option instead of the specialty sandwiches. They also cater to those who don't eat beef with a chicken, vegan patty. The beef is grass fed and grass bred from local farms near by as well the veggies, house cut fries and house made sauces. They have a huge beer and wine selection as well. This place rocks!!!

Great restaurant right on the mall. You may have to wait for seating especially if you're trying to eat outside on the weekends. Ask for Nate the server. He gave us one of the best service based experiences we've ever had.
