Food On point! Had the Philly Cheesesteak, cesar salad, and Cubano burger, and everything was done really well. The Cheesesteak had a great cook, peppers were still crunchy, onions soft, beef well seasoned, the bread had exceptional flavor and was toasted well. My only thing was the inside fell through the bread as soon as I picked it up, so it turned into a knife-and-forker. The beef for the burger was well seasoned with a nice coarse but not too coarse grind, cooked perfectly and again well-seasoned. Fried piclelswas a good touch along with also having fresh veggies to add as toppings. Service Great! We got to know the owner Matt and learned this location opened 5.5yrs ago while the Cool Springs location opened 9yrs ago. He was very personable while the food was ready quick. Ambiance I really enjoyed the feel of the space at the West Franklin location. Had a real comfortable, like I was eating at home feel. Will definitely be back to try other items on the menu!

Came looking for a good buger and was so happy I did! The flavor, spice, cook on the burger, and crispy fries were all top notch! Highly recommend! I got the Ground Melt and it was one of the best melts I have ever had.
