Nostalgic visit to place we used to go to in high school (60's). Quaint. Not a lot of seating space but worth the visit. Try the onion burger, it's awesome. They also have great shakes.

This tiny restaurant has a very limited menu. First time I ever had a cheeseburger on toast. Very tasty. But it took me several days to get the smell of grease out of my clothes. The customers are quite entertaining. Definitely a local hangout. Went...More
