I was surprised to find a line when I got there at 4PM on a Saturday, but thankfully the line was short and moved quickly. While we were waiting to order, we were told that our seats were at the counter. Interesting system not being able to pick your own seats, but I guess it's to ensure that they're using their table space efficiently. Besides counter seats, there are also some booths and hightops.\n\nWe ordered the double gotham smash burger and the loaded tots to share. The bun is toasted, the cheese melty, the perfect amount of sauce with thick pickles... it's a solid burger! If I were to compare it to 7th Street (another great smash burger), it's definitely more substantial and less greasy. The tots were nice and crispy, and the chopped cheese is a perfect topping for them. But for $16, I don't think I need to get them again.\n\nThe only complaint I have is that the burger was served in a paper carton, so the burger kept sliding apart and was just really hard to eat. If it was served in a normal burger paper wrap, it would be perfect! We had a chance to chat with the guy that was handling the line at the door, and he said the owner is super nice and that he loved working there, which is always awesome to hear!",
