I discovered this place a few weeks ago via Uber eats and we've had it like 6 times since then! Lol. We even went into the actual restaurant cuz the food was so good, we wanted to see the place.The people are incredible. Nice and communicative, and boss at their jobs!I am a top tier picky eater.And my husband is keto.Both of us have found delicious options every time. Whatever you order, get a side of umami sauce. A f.t. of umami sauce, if you will ;)I have yet to find a burger here that isn't irresistible. The queso is yummy, and a bit spicy. The brisket grilled cheese is really delicious too. Idk, I could probably prattle on and on about this place. Bottom line, just go. And get umami sauce.Sorry I don't have better pics but every time I get my food, it looks and tastes so good I forget.Pictured here is the fatty melt, on Texas toast, with extra onions and an explicit amount of Umami sauce.Highly recommend.

The burger (GOAT) was juicy, fresh, and flavorful. Great selection of burgers. I can't wait to go back and try another.

This place is fantastic!! My favorite is the Bro-Tot-Chos but the brisket grilled cheese and the Fritos chili pie are good too. And the funnel cake fries...OMG!! Ask for the dark chocolate sauce with the funnel cake fries!Friendly service and food is always hot and fresh! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for fresh, locally prepared meats at reasonable prices.

Everything was goodThe corn would be better without whatever green ingredient they put I couldn’t put my finger on what it was but it made the corn have a unappealing tasteThe Bro tot chos and the grilled cheese were tastyThey also need better drink options

This place is amazing! Very nicely priced, very delicious. The staff went above and beyond. They messed up a couple things on our burgers, but it happens. They brought up desert for free, funnel cake sticks or something, was delicious. Will definitely be coming back and telling people to try it. They really care unlike fast food places.

Delicious!!! Hands down the best burger I've had in Denton by far. I've had the restaurant door dashed first then ate there in person and I got that same high-quality burger both ways. When I did dine in the staff were sooo nice and welcoming. The restaurant it self was very clean. They also have cute little games you can play at your table and a mini air hockey table !!! I took my little (big) brother and he couldn't stop smiling at the sight of his burger.

My wife is a self-proclaimed "smashburger" expert! When we found that The Meat Up had "smashburgers", we had to check it out. We ordered the BFD (breakfast for dinner) and the Crunch Burger (because who doesn't need potato chips on the burger). The Wife did order hers pink, and it was cooked all the way through. We get it ... when you smash, it's hard to keep any color. However, the burger was dried out. So was my Crunch burger. The burgers were however, delicious, and her runny egg more than made up for it! 5 Stars on the burgers! We had waffle fries and tater tots, and they were both delicious. Pro tip for the kids: We got the large queso mac & cheese, with the queso on the side... which left noodles for the kid, and queso for me! It's simple, it's the wife's favorite new place! 5 Stars!

First ordered from here on uber eats and was hooked from that moment on. We now go about once a week and im hooked on thr chicken cordon bleu, idk whata in the sauce but the sandwich melts in your mouth. I love thier burgers as well, and if you eant a little spice, get the texmex pizza, it will leave your mouth burning. As far as service, food comes out pretty quickly, and they will take manual orders if need to or help you with the kiosk. Oh and the games around the restraunt are great too.


Had to check out the burger joint, and I'm so glad I did! I had the guy behind the counter give me recommendations, and he knocked it out of the park!I had the "Got Beef" burger, which had some chopped brisket and BBQ sauce... so good, so very messy... don't know how I avoided getting stains on my clothes! And he talked me into the sweet potato fries. I was reluctant, because I have had a lot of them, and some other sides looked a bit different...but I got them anyway. I don't say this lightly:Best sweet potato fries I ever had.Not kidding. I don't know how they do it, but these were crispy and not greasy at all. I almost thought they must cook them over an open flame, because they were flaky and a little smoky. Apparently they fry them (I asked) but they didn't absorb any oil.Exceptional.

I finally got a chance to try this place out. The atmosphere was great, I love the games that were set up all around. I love the customer service and the food was decent. My burger was a bit dry so I am not sure if it was overcooked or needed more seasoning but other than that I enjoyed everything else.


You gotta go check this place out! Banging cream sodas, delicious hot sauce, and the food we had was great!Ooh Mommy burger & waffle fries && Fatty melt & curly friesKid-friendliness: Several games to playWheelchair accessibility: Just looking, there were parking & ramps

Got a curbside order and was excited to try this place out. I’ve heard so many good things from the community and always want to support local. I ordered the hot honey chicken sandwich. Which said it came with all the fixings (LTPO) I opted for no pickles and added pepper jack cheese :)Unfortunately upon getting home and getting ready to dig in..all it had was chicken, cheese, and sauce…which would be fine for some but I like my veggies. Disappointing…hopefully next time will be better? :(

This place is a foodie's delight on a relatively bargain budget. They have a wide variety of absolutely deliciously done foods. The brisket burger was awesome, my daughter loved her Umami burger, and the fries with chorizo were all just better than anything around. We both agreed we liked it a lot more than LSA burger.

Super friendly place, they greeted us immediately and were helpful with the menu. Great burger place in town and affordable our whole family loved it, something for everyone. Definitely try it if you are in Denton.

Every time I order food from this place, I swear it's better than the last time. Damn good food. I keep thinking "There's no way it's gonna be better than last time" and sure enough BAM....I highly recommend the Banana pudding. It's a perfect balance to brisket grilled cheese.
