Hands down, this burger is amazing! Great quality meat and delicious flavor. It didn't need any bells and whistles to dress it up. It could stand alone without the bread! But I wouldn't pass up the br...ead - it's made especially for this Drago's restaurant by the Leidenheimer Baking Company! And you can definitely tell.

I was surprised to find out that this place has been open since January...what?! I hadn't even heard of it until last week. Craziness.

First of all, it's a Drago's restaurant - they had children who went to St Clement (my alma mater) - how could I not hear of this place?

Secondly, we arrived around 12:45 today and NO ONE was there. The place was deserted except for two or three employees. They must not be very successful.

Despite the cool venue, great burger, and decent employees, our service stank. We sat down at a table after being yelled at from the other end of the building to sit wherever we wanted. It took at least 10 minutes (with no one there besides us) for someone to ask us what we would like to drink. It took even longer for someone to take our order. Seriously? There was NO ONE ELSE there. Our order was very simple - two regular burgers. They come cooked medium well? Sure, sounds great. These burgers, even though they were extremely delicious, took entirely too long to grill up. It seemed like someone must have needed to go buy the meat or kill the cow. We asked for the bill when we received our food because my friend had to get back to work.

If you have time to kill, this would be a great place to come; but it is not for a quick lunch. As per my water rating scale - my glass was empty for more than half of the hour we were waiting. 2 glasses out of my desired 4. Not cool. I expected more from a Drago's restaurant. My only assumption is that the very slow service is why this place may not be doing as well as it could be.

There is no possible way I could give this place more than 3 stars. 1.5 stars for the burger, 1 for the neat venue, .5 because at least the staff was somewhat friendly.

I find it mysterious that my first review is gone. Went for dinner tonight - they only had two waiters on a Friday at 6:30. The owner had invited his friends and they were getting most of the attent...ion. The teenage waiter was AWFUL - he was so stressed, poor baby. The bartender did not seem to care. Our waitress had all of the tables on the lower level in
addition to the"owner's friends". Plus the "friends" let their kids run everywhere. It will be a very long time before we go back. Phil's is just around the corner.

Got here at 8:28pm eager to try the burgers. As I walked in, waitress yelled across the room "we stopped servin at 8". I said "sorry, your sites say 9pm". She just repeated "we stopped servin at 8".... No sorry or anything. She never gave me a chance to ask for take out. How rude. See More
