Swensons has some of the best burgers ever! Car side service can't be beat. They have delicious fries and fried veggies. Anytime I'm near here I love to stop.

Burger was soggy. The patty was dry and the fries were horrible. This place has lost its luster. It's no longer in the top 10 of burgers in Akron. So over rated!!!!!!!!

Sweet like candy NO, but a hint of sweet can sometimes go unnoticeable w/ the other condiments. You'll love the burger and you can go to Strickland's for some excellent ice cream.
