Burger Joint
$$
“We find our selves here at least twice a month when we tire of veggie fare and NEED a burger. Burgers are what they do - bison, beef, turkey, veggie - many different ways. The haystack is a must - onion, zucchini, sweet potato and potato fries. The salads and sides are ever-changing and always fantastic. Beer and wine. The decor is modern rustic. Order at the counter and find a seat. At busiest times you may have to wait just a few minutes for a table, but they will time your food to arrive hot. ”
