Best burgers and fries in town!

Usually the best French dip I’ve ever had. Today was different. I ordered it no onions. Once I got it and looked at it outside there were onions on it took it back inside and young girl who took my order didn’t seem to care and said maybe it got mixed in with the mushrooms well there isn’t even mushrooms on it. So doesn’t know menu. Went back outside to see if it was just on edge. Nope was in whole sandwich took it back inside. This time the guy was very nice and offered to make new one but by that point I was over it and ruined my lunch. Was really looking forward to it after the great one I had yesterday. Also forgot to say I tipped them as well. $16.28 was the total.

I've always loved the market for Aperitivo, but decided to grab a few filets from Carvers recently. The guy behind the counter was extremely knowledgeable and was able to give directions on the best way to cook it at home. The quality of the meat was absolutely outstanding! Followed his directions and they turned out amazing. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

All the food here is amazing! The burgers though are the absolute best!!!! My favorite in all of Grand Rapids! It's made perfectly every time! It's also under 10$ for a burger and fries!! Such a steal! They also have really great specials. I had their lamb chimichanga and it was out of this world!

One of the many great spots in the Downtown Market. As a meat counter they really have some amazing cuts of local raised meat. They also have a great menu of fantastic sandwiches and dogs. I tried the Kobe Beef dogs and they may have been the best dog I've ever had. I only left one star off because seating can be a challenge if the market is pretty busy.

Ordered a pork cutlet sandwich ($14.84 w/ tax) and wasn't told until after the transaction that they were out. The guy said the machine wasn't letting him print a receipt of the refund (BS). I gave them the benefit of the doubt and waited until the next day to see if my refund posted to my bank account. It did not. I called back the next business day (2 business days after the transaction), mentioned the guy's name and order number and the person on the phone just said "ok we'll take care of it" (also BS). I waited another couple days, still no refund. I had to file a transaction dispute with my bank. I can't tell if this was due to scammy practices or ineptitude. Regardless, I'm never eating here again and I actively tell people not to go here.

I am really hoping that they were having a bad day. We went well after the rush on a Sunday. Everything on the menu and in the case made this place look promising. Everything was good but not great. We ordered the steak (medium) & fries and hot chicken sandwich (slaw on the side) to split. They told us 10-15 minutes, it took about 20 - no big deal. The fries were lukewarm, only thanks to the war food on top of them. We ordered the steak medium and it came out midwell/well. The sandwich was fine but the fries in that boat were colder than the other set. We may try to get some stuff from the counter or hope for hot fries next time we're there.

Fabulous food! The Santa Fe beef soup was so tender, the cheeseburger held up to the description of "best burger you'll ever have", and the Kobe beef tacos equally amazing! To top it all off, our server Dan was efficient, attentive and quite charming. Great job!

Went in for the first time tonight (usually go to Fish Lads which they also own) for 2 for one burger night and wow...it will be hard to eat another burger and enjoy it after tasting this masterpiece. People are ALWAYS so nice too. Thanks to suggestion, we'll try the dry aged burger next. Mushroomy, bleu cheesy, and full of flavor. Can't wait!

I was debating between the French dip and the Italian beef. The guy behind the counter recommended the Italian beef and man, I'm glad he did! It was the best Italian beef I've ever had in my life! Anytime I go to Chicago I get an Italian beef because it's always one of my favorites but this place surpasses all of them!!

The first time I came here I was undecided as far as what to get. So many things sound good! The man working helped me decide and I went with his choice- the italian beef. It was INCREDIBLE! It was hot and flavorful. I also was really surprised by the fries. This guy had excellent customer service and the food was awesome. That visit won me over. I have went back since and the food is still good but sometimes the service lacks. Regardless, definitely one of my favorite places to eat in GR.

I ordered the Philly, which was made with quality ingredients like Kobe beef. Price was a tad high (due to the location) but quality , quantity , and taste more than made up for it. I would visit here again to try out the rest of the menu

Excellent food and very friendly workers, I've been here a few times. There Kobe beef hot dogs are some of the best with a perfect snap to them. THe cheeseburger is also very good here and you get a pretty good amount of fries with it. Definitely one of the best places at the downtown market!

Good food reasonably priced.

The food was amazing and the folks behind the counter were so helpful in saying what they liked and what sells well. I can't wait to come back!
