Kuma's serves up some major burgers on pretzel rolls in a setting that is, to say the least, unique. This is a rock and roll, hardcore metal place, from the music to the service to the burger names. All burgers can come with 10oz burger patty, boneless chicken breast, garden burger, or chicken tenders, and range from the 'Famous Kuma Burger': bacon, cheddar, and a fried egg, to the 'Black Sabbath': blackening spice, chili, pepper jack, and red onion, to the 'Plague Bringer': roasted garlic mayo, tortilla strips, house made hot sauce, garlic, pepper jack, and jalapenos. Also worth trying: make your own mac & cheese, any of the sandwiches, or the sliders if your appetite is quite up there. Words to the wise: portions are big, music is loud, the space is small, and they don't take reservations. The summer months also offer a patio. No minors allowed after 10pm.
