We stopped in for lunch. They were extremely busy the whole time but were able to fill orders quickly. The food was great!

Good place to cool down and enjoy an ice cream. Burgers are good too. Biggest con is they are always busy and parking lot always full. Stop if you need a break and can find a place to park.
