Top Review:“We drove to Flagstaff from Roseville, CA today. After the 11 hour drive a burger is just what I needed. I gotta say – excellent burgers! My wife had the Spring Picnic Burger with grilled peaches, cream cheese, honey, & a patty. She loved it! I had the Marilyn & my sister had the Blake. The fries are seasoned with rosemary and are amazing too! Cute little place in downtown. Best seating is outdoors on the patio and seating inside is limited. Service was super friendly & helpful. This place rocks the burgers & check out their specialty sauces as well. Nice little gem in Flagstaff!” – Todd G.
