    I’ve been having my eye on this place wanting to try it out. It seems like a better concept than The Counter and the food looks (and sounds) much better with a wider variety. Did you find that it took longer for the food to be delivered since everything was customized?

    I keep hearing good things about their burgers, and of course I want to play with the iPad ordering. And, I want a pretzel bun.

    So, do you order the appetizer and then order your burger when you’re halfway through the first course? It seems like you’d end up waiting quite a bit if you finish one course before ordering the next. It IS kind of cool, though, that you can pace your meal however you want.

    Hi Darlene! I like this place better than the Counter. It ran much more smoothly than our visit to the Counter with no mistaken orders! The food did not take very long to come out, it was actually a good turn around time. Probably 10 minutes or less after ordering.

    Hi Leanne! The pretzel bun is so good! I had my doubts, but after trying it I was pretty convinced of its greatness. To get the timing down, you would probably order your burgers halfway through appetizers, or whenever you’re ready to eat. Didn’t take very long for us to get our food, but I’m sure that varies depending on the crowd. It’s nice that you get to decide the pace.

  4. Sounds quite cool – my daughter would love playing with the iPad but for a techtard like me, not so much, heh heh. if only fashion valley weren’t such a B%^&H to get to. Those onion strings are calling my name!

    Hello! Love your blog as I am a foodie and newbie blogger! Funny story – I clicked on the “Stacked” link while I was at work and our sever blocked the webpage due to “pornographic/explicit content.” Hehe. “Stacked.” Regardless, I look forward to trying it out! Thanks for your thorough review!

    Hi CC – I guarantee your daughter would love the iPad. Yeah, Fashion Valley is a bitch. We bowed down to the man and paid to park in the garage right across from the restaurant.

    Hi Tiffany – Thanks for stopping by! That is funny about the webpage blockage… silly censors!
