"If the service was a bit faster, this would be a knock out. Friendly staff. Great drinks, gourmet milkshakes, good burgers/fries. I got a skillet with their potatoes, house made garlic chili sauce, shawarma chicken and two over easy eggs - delicious!! Be prepared for laid back & don't be in a rush & you'll have a great meal."

"I was a bit hesitant to choose a place that specialized in burgers and shawarma, but decided to take the plunge. We were not disappointed. There were four of us and two had burgers and two had shawarma and all were excellent. The shakes are great too. We had an appetizer platter and the hummus was amazing, and the wings were good. The baba ganoush was a disappointment as it was a bit bland; but that was the only disappointment on the night. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next day for brunch!"
