FWIH, it's the old Bar Burger crew, moved to a new location. The boss is still trying to rent out his old location on the corner of Shmuel Hanavi and Yoel, as he still has time left on his lease there.

I guess the new place is a better location...

never heard of a place besides for a hotel that have such a thing I think the closest hotel to that area would be Jerusalem gate though I don't think you would be getting good food from there maybe try hotels in the Ramada area call them up and ask them

I don't think you can eat there on Shabbos. I thought you were asking for takeout.
