Sometimes ya just want a simple no-nonsense burger and fries. These guys deliver that very, very well.

The good:

Excellent burgers with your choice of  many toppings:
(mayo, relish, onions, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, fried onions, sauteed mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, jalapeno peppers, A-1 sauce, BB-Q sauce and hot sauce)

"Fresh beef- never frozen"

They make 'em fresh when you order- yelling back to the guys at the grill "3 Patties !"

The fries- kind of thick, not crispy- but very flavorful and plentiful. Also today's batch came from Pasco, Washington according to the dry-erase board.

They seem to be a Washington, DC institution now making their way to the West Coast.

The decor is straight-up In-n-Out inspired.

They really have their routine down- even though there was a long line it only took about 10 minutes. Totally worth it.

The not so-good

A little spendy- a double bacon cheese will run you $5.89
- what the burgers lack in diameter they make up for in quality and thickness.

Limited menu- they sell burgers, fries, Kosher dogs and Cola- not even shakes.

They only cook the burgers 1 way "Juicy and well done", and delivered exactly that- juicy and well done.

The Pics:
What you're really here to see.

The line goes out the door- but moves really fast past the bustling counter. Those are sacks of Potatos for Fries.

(They use only 100% Peanut Oil)



You get a sense of things to come when you get your bag of burgers and fries- notice the seepage.




First to emerge were the fries- order a "small" and you get a cup, but there's a surprise in the bag...



Jackpot!

These were cajun fries, and while I prefer my fries thin and crispy- these were very flavorful.





Now for the burger- this is a "Cheeseburger"

Their regular burgers come with 2 patties, and the small burgers come with 1.





And a cross section with fries- it's a big meaty burger.

whoa, 11pm, sweet.
man..it almost looks like an In-N-Out! Except missing the long lines!
oh it looks way better than In-n-Out. This post almost makes up for your lengthy hiatus. :D More food p0rn pleez.
I just had a heart attack reading this...I had their small fries once...mmmm...
hmmm... looks like a good post-treatment snack, before the nasties set in :)
I like more veg on my burger, but the fries look yummy!

That was just pickles and onions- when they put the lettuce and tomatoes on 'em they're sky-high
Dude, I was just thinking all's been quiet on the food porn front here, and then you delivered with this meat-tastic post! Nice.

Been reading about this place on that other food board. I also prefer my fries really thin and cripsy, however canjun flavor is worth trying and I'd take your word on it. I think the only thing that's the bummer for me is only getting it well done, as I prefer mine more medium. I'd suck that up though to give it a try if I was out there. The decor reminds me of this ice cream chain in my hometown.

Thanks for the review!
aww man- I was trying to beat the other board to the punch ;)
Nice try though! ;) Yeah, it's pretty hard to beat the foodies. They're usually ready to pounce at a new business the second it's open, and sometimes before then at "soft" openings.
they must have- because this place is 300 yds from my front door- so I literally smelled the burgers the day they opened ;)
