Bummer. I like those burgers not to mention the fries. Not shocking though because almost always only a few people in there. Seemed like poor management. Employees appeared to always be goofing off. Listening to rock music as loud as could be and the place seemed dirty sometimes.

If you've ever eaten there, you would know it is worth the 18 dollars. To feed TWO people. Boy boyfriend and I both get a burger and split fries for under 18 dollars. It's worth the price. The food is great. You pay good money for good food.

That place was dirty, music was up wayyyy too loud (you could not have a conversation with your co-workers) and the food costs were outrageous. Food was just OK, not GREAT.
I am by no means poor OR a wellie but I said to hell with spending that $ for lunch.

No, sorry. It's good food, but nothing so special as to deserve the price they charge. Actually, their burgers reminded me of what we could make at home on our own grill (lazy us!).

I'm sorry to hear they're leaving Rome (like many, many other businesses). But, we need to watch our spending.....all of us.

No one is driving all the way up there to get a burger

It's that simple.

If they were more centrally located they would have done better.
