In 2001, I wanted to leave my corporate gig and open a burger joint. After the laughter stopped, I convinced my friends and family that it really could work. I knew that I liked to go out and eat at places where I felt like the employees knew my name and appreciated my business. My favorite places are fun, clean, have a casual atmosphere that are service oriented and priced reasonably. Places where friends and family can gather and enjoy themselves without feeling rushed.
