Shep's Classic Burger
Cheddar, pickles, lettuce, and tomato with house sauce on the side.
The Shepard & the Knucklehead emits a great atmosphere; it's the kind of place you’d want to go to during a snowstorm to drink a beer and enjoy a hot juicy burger. My friend Steve recommended the breakfast burger with Taylor ham, egg & cheese, but I felt obligated to go with their namesake, Shep's Classic burger. No disappointment here folks, even the fries were great. Check out my autopsy shots and you'll see what I mean.
One con: The burger was so fat, is was difficult to eat which made me knock down some points for burger-to-bun ratio and eatibility.
Friendly wait staff, decent prices and a killer ambiance will make you a happy camper too.
Psssst!...try the Crab Rangoon appy.
