Cool burger joint. Stopped in for quick drink no food this time. Only place I saw any Toppling Goliath on my whe trip. Decent tap list and some bottle. Zombie theme is fun and nice music playing while there.

A trendy burger spot with a decent taplist. Half of the place is focused on quick service burgers/take out while the other half was full service. A zombie theme to the whole place which was pretty cool. Service was solid if not particularly beer oriented. The 12 taps had a nice mix of local and non local plus a decent bottle selection. My burger was good and enjoyed the chili fries. Prices were nice as well. A cool spot for a burger with a decent selection.

Really cool burger joint and bar. zombie theme throughout decorating and menu. Just fun to check out, and definitely unique. Selection was impressive, with a variety of bottles and draft beers to choose from. Not expecting this quality of beer from this place. Food was awesome. Food and drink was well priced. Overall, a cool theme with great craft beers. Would come back again.

Enjoyed a few beers (tap and bottle), burgers and fries. Excellent service and atmosphere, food was very good, albeit greasy and the bottle selection was top notch. 100ís of options as well as some great draft options. Liquor, wine, domestic beers and more than enough crafts. Really a very very cool place!

We visited on a Friday evening around 6. The place was packed and had a 45 minute wait. The pint of PseudoSue made the wait go quickly. The atmosphere was pretty unique and actually quite cool. Their beer selection is pretty decent. Other than Sue, I know they had Dead Guy and Green Bullet. The burger was the best Iíve had in a long time, and poutine was great. I will need to make it back.

Located on the ground floor of an apartment building, which is connected to a parking lot thatís for tenants only. There are a lot of meters in the area. The restaurant has a fast food-no booze side and a side with a bar. They had all Iowa bees on tap and some pretty solid things in bottle. The burger was tasty and reasonably priced. I liked the zombie theme which extends all the way to the blood spatterd flight board.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. Weird place, although that is to be expected with a name like this. Nice building which was packed, but didnít have to wait too long. Selection is hard to score. There isnít a huge tap list, but some good stuff is on it, including Toppling Goliath and Confluence. The bottle list was pretty good too. Some really unique items on the menu, especially...the maccaroni burger. Fries were WAY too salty, but otherwise everything was good, and you get a lot for your money. Waiter was friendly and seemed to know something about beer. Overall, I like that the place has character, and is quirky and unique, but the whole zombie thing does come off as a little immature and tacky. Regardless, I still definitely recommend this place, and Iíll be back.

A solid overall beer selection, but the prices seemed a little high to me. While good beer can be had here, this is a place you visit for the good burgers and fries first, beer second. Worth a stop in if you are in the area. Looks clean and modern. Lots of options on the burgers and dogs which, despite the beer prices, are not priced any more than any other sit down burgers. Very good food. The zombie theme is just fun.
