Comment of the Day!


I ate at Burger Fi this weekend.  On the positive side, the fries are some of the best in town.  The burgers were quite good, but a bit pricey.  I wouldn't recommend the Kobe beef hotdog; while it sounds enticing, it just wasn't that different from an ordinary dog to justify the price.  I would definitely go back when I feel like my wallet can handle it.
