If you like Sinatra and saloon singers, the place formerly known as Club Monaco is a nice stop. However, the cooks do something to the burger that would make ’Ol Blue Eyes turn over in his grave. Never, never cut a roll in half! That’s an insult to all burger fanciers. It’s like serving hot dogs on regular bread instead of a roll. The burger itself is tasty, but the cut is an unforgivable sin. Plus the fries are those horrible skin type, though the steak size is a nice touch. Also, the price is probably a buck too high. Bottom line: We wanted Sinatra and got Junior.
