Had lunch here with our family. This place is nothing fancy, but the burgers are excellent. You sit on wooden boxes for chairs. The building looks like a dumpy shack. The burgers are cooked over an open grill using real charcoal briquettes. The staff here...More

The hotel staff recommended The Chuckbox for a good burger and they were right. The burger was cooked exactly as we ordered it. The prices were good, they serve coke which I don't like so I asked for ice tea and it was terrible.
