10 min drive. 'We're burger people and we take our burgers very seriously. We source the best beef in the country taking pride in selecting only humanely-raised cattle that are free of antibiotics, preservatives, hormones and steroids. Happy cows make great burgers, so we insist on humanely raised cattle cared for by family-owned farms who raise their livestock the old fashioned way. Our chuck and sirloin blend beef patties are hand-made here in our kitchen; are always fresh; and are never, ever frozen. Our produce is fresh, our beer is cold, and we always strive to Keep It Local.'
