The burger is made to order and arrived medium-rare. There’s a lot of great flavors in this burger. I’ve never had a burger with pimento on it and it was quite good. The mess factor is high with the oozing cheese and juicy meat, but the bun does it job and supports you till the very end.
A side of fries is $5 extra, but they’re crispy, seasoned well, and delicious.
