Good, hot food, good service, clean restaurant! Try the sweet potato tater tots! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars...they have a wall of liquor but no mixed drink menu/unique drinks. If you're only looking at food, it would be 5 stars. I would go back again.

I've eaten here 3 times and I have never gotten great service. All three times I have tried different dishes and I haven't liked anything I've ordered. That is my personal taste and I am not heavily judging based on just that. I would think that I should be able to find something I like at a burger joint.

We recently relocated to the area and have visited here about three times. Great craft beer selection! The fried green tomatoes and house-made pimento cheese are outstanding. Chili fries were excellent and large enough to share. Cobb salad was far better than most. The wait staff and bar staff are pleasant and accommodating. The atmosphere is very inviting, comfortable, and spacious. We really love the bar layout. Highly recommended.

The atmosphere is really nice, as is the staff. The food, on the other hand, was so so. Nothing bad but nothing really amazing either. I spent $18 on one burger, fries and a coke.

The staff needs to learn the menu. I ordered the Bless Your Heart burger, which on the menu clearly states that it comes with bacon, ham, and cheddar cheese. I received a plain burger with a piece of ham on it. When I pointed the mistake out to the waitress, she stated "no, that is how it comes", basically calling me a liar. After a trip to the kitchen and after I had taken a few bites, she returned and said the cooks said to tell me the cheese and bacon were cooked in the patty. I am not stupid. I showed her the patty and it was obvious there wasn't cheese or bacon cooked into the patty. I understand people make mistakes, but when it is pointed out to you, FIX IT, don't make up lies or excuses. May or may not return, definitely will share my experience.


Great local place for Sunday lunch. We had fried green tomatoes for appetizer. We had fried chicken sandwich and club sandwich. The portion are plenty so we had a to go box for later.

The restaurant was beautiful! Loved the atmosphere…. I would love to come back and actually get to try the food! All I got was my drink until I left… When I received my drink I noticed the waitress Mel she worked at chili’s the last time I ate there a year ago… Her attitude has not changed at all… I am not just trying to be a picky customer but she never once smiled and she was just so snobby and acted like she didn’t care about her customer service. When she came over to ask what we would like to eat and I just asked for our bill for our drinks because the way we was treated! She tends to act so innocent with a smirk on her face and that’s what really upset me! I told her how I felt and I rushed out the restaurant because I did not want to upset anyone else. I would love to come back and actually get to have a meal because the menu looked delicious! When I decide to go back I will call and make sure Mel is not working that day because I will not go back if she is there.


Great service and staff. Had the fried pickles and chili burger both were great.

The food was really great tasting and great quality. The service though was most impressive. The server was really friendly and always showed up at just the right times to get whatever we needed.


We wanted to try this restaurant based on recommendations from co-workers. We stopped in on New Years Eve on our way to our holiday destination and were pleased that they were open. It wasn't crowded at all and the front end staff was friendly. We were seated quickly and didn't have to wait long at all before placing our order. The wait for our food was what I would consider reasonable. Upon receipt of our food, we found that one burger was cooked as ordered but one burger was definitely not. We ordered well done and redundantly specified "no pink at all" to the waitress. Unfortunately this burger was cooked to a medium rare state at best! We didn't want to have the burger re-cooked as we were already short on time so the wait staff removed it from our ticket without any incident. I think it would have made a better impression on us had the manager on duty made an appearance to apologize for our problem but this did not happen. We also didn't care too much for the onion rings. They were large and beautifully cooked but were so greasy we just couldn't eat them.

Was not that impressed. But I'll start with the good the waitress was nice, food was okay. However we waited over an hour to to get our food with a restaurant that wasn't that busy. With staff that seemed to be walking over each other. They did try to make it better by taking the kids meals off the bill. However it still cost $58 for 3 burgers and water! And they automatically added a tip I would have tipped more but they just add it! I know prices are going up everywhere but for this price I would expect it to be the best burger I've ever had and I'd have to say that The Burger Bus has them beat.


The sweet tea to the fried green tomatoes did not disappoint. The turkey avocado blt was delicious and too much to finish. Hubs had the BBQ burger and sweet potato fries, delish. Friendly helpful service.

Amazing patty melt, sweet potato fries and peach pie ala mode! Friendly, prompt service!

Visited Stack for the first time yesterday. Both my wife and I agreed that our burgers were probably two of the best we had ever had. I had the "Bless Your Heart" Burger and my wife had the mac and cheese burger. We both shared a massive order of perfectly cooked fries, which we could not finish. The burgers were done exactly to our requests, and were juicy and flavorful on a perfectly toasted brioche bun. Again, two of the best we'd ever eaten. The fries were crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside, perfectly seasoned, and hot. I also had a two ounce whiskey pour from their massive whiskey list and cannot wait to go back and try other blends that I have not had before. What a great, inexpensive way to try to new spirits without having to fork over the cost of a bottle.As good as our meal was, the star of the afternoon was our hostess/server Kinzie. She was effervescent, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable about all of the items on the menu. Even though we had never been there before, she made us feel like regular customers and old friends. You can tell that she loves her job. We will go back just to have another experience with Kinzie. She was delightful.

We are not from here and found the restaurant online. Lots of family in town for a wedding. Our server was Veronica and she was over the top phenomenal! Our large group moved our table because the live music (which was great) was loud at our first table. Veronica handled the move like a champ! She was patient and professional. The place was fun and the food and drinks were great. Veronica provided fabulous service and was fun to work with. Definitely recommend this as a fabulous local business to visit!
