Only took about 10 minutes for our burger, fries and onion straws to be ready, the shake was ready quick. All around deliciousness! Will stop again the next time we come through, yummmmm!

We always stop there. Sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, fries, sweet potato fries, and more, but the best are the shakes and malts---they alone are worth a stop at this little roadside stand.
