Stopped there for lunch - they have an area to eat outside if you want! The ham & cheese I ordered came on perfectly grilled, buttered toast, and the burger was perfect. Their fries are super. The number of otions they have for your choice is really great. We will go back!

This is the very best place to get a burger, fries and onion rings! You can bacon to it too! 😃 It doesn't get any better. The portions are generous, and the food is hot off the grill. If you have room, and if you don't, then go ahead and stuff yourself with a fabulous cup of their vanilla custard.... More

Burgers are a little over priced but worth it, fries are also good. Only order one fry and split if two people, baskets are huge.

Food is yummy and service is excellent! Everyone seems to love their jobs there! The cook came out to apologize for it taking so long but we didn't even notice. Great place :)

I ordered a hotdog. It came out boiled and not grilled. They didn't have relish, so I ordered chopped onions with catsup and mustard. Came out with inch long pieces of onion and a squished bun that didn't wrap around the bun. My coworkers got burgers and really liked them.

Service was good for being staffed by mostly young adults. Our waitress was actually attentive. She laughed and joked with us.. Could have been the fact that us two old guys my 20 year old son with me who she mentioned was "good looking" in a slip it in there kind of way! Burgers and fries are great compared to... More

First time visit, really enjoyed the cheese burger. Very juicy, large patty with nice roll. The fries and shake were good. I will go back.

Had lunch here with my husband and son. The burgers are very tasty, which I attribute to the steamed buns they are served on. My husband and I always share an order of onion rings, as the order is quite large. This is one of our favorite burger joints, and will definitely go back.

Good place to grab a hamburger and fries. Kids love the custard. Service is typically very good and food comes fast.
