The food is REALLY good--not fancy, but fresh and delicious and fun. They'll actually make a hamburger rare, and there are a bunch of tasty combos in addition to the standard American cheeseburger. The mediterranean lamb burger is SO good, with feta and gyro sauce. They have great fries and the caesar salad tastes like its dressing is actually made fresh, not pre-. They have Irish egg rolls that are to die for if you're a big reuben fan--traditional rolls stuffed with corned beef, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut with a Russian dressing dip. OMG I'm starving and we're going as soon as I finish this review! We love the service--the wait staff, including Rema and Evalina, is wonderful--friendly AND competent, a tough combo to find. Oh, and I forgot the drinks--so much fun and generous in size and delicious. And the shakes! You can get regular milkshakes or have them spiked! I love this place. Good, fun food and drinks at reasonable prices in a low-key, relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Though we are not huge meat eaters, there is something awfully comforting about an occasional, well made hamburger served by an enthusiastic and friendly staff member in a convivial environment. Haywire is a family business that opened a few years ago in an existing location. Family members are very visible moving about the restaurant attending to details. The menu offers a number of options, but the burgers are the lead actors. 100% Angus beef in a number of iterations, at least 2 dozen beers on tap and a perfectly serviceable wine BTG program. This restaurant is always mobbed which is ample confirmation that they really get it right. Consistently good with a first class staff, who appear to be genuinely having fun while working at a really fast clip. Really good value.

Make sure you get there early on the weekends or you are in for a wait. We look for a spot at the Bar where the service is great with no wait. Best burgers we have ever had.My wife gets without the bun and the onion rings are great.

I'm a vegetarian - so no burgers for me - but my friends say they are great. The eggplant fries are excellent. Fish tacos - very good.
