4/5 stars

A $3 cheeseburger special for their anniversary. What do you expect? To go home afterwards and eat a real dinner? Nope! This was a real burger and fries, not some tiny slider & a limp stick. This place certainly has my attention. Friendly people, and a, well, friendly enough barkeep (hey, I'm not a regular yet). The Terrapin rye ale was fresh as promised and a perfect accompaniment to that burger. Don't expect extreme cuisine, but hell, I haven't had good beef in Atlanta outside of Rosebud's sliders. This beef was charred beautifully and had that smokey happy feel.

Wish they had live music (quoth Mojo, "if you ain't got no live drummer, then you just disco doomed"), but that's about the only downside. Still reminded me of a good time in Hyannis, and that's a good thing…
