THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Black Shack Restaurant Review

: There’s not much in the way of décor at this burger joint: cafeteria-style wood benches and wood walls in the somewhat subterranean space don’t offer a lot of atmosphere. But customers care only about one thing, and that’s the meaty, well-stacked burgers. Choices like The Black Shack with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard, and The Sloppy Joe dripping with tangy tomato sauce, as well as mix-and-match topping options bring in burger lovers. Sandwiches such as the Western chicken with crispy onions, pickles and barbecue sauce are alternatives on the beef-centered menu. Beers by the bottle and on tap are available.
