This place will take you back in time when you use to walk up to a window and order burger fries and malts. The food also takes you back to when a hamburger was a hamburger. I really love this cool little joint

This place is what it says, it is a late 50s early 60s type restaurant with excellent sandwiches, shakes, sundies. It reminds me of when I was a teenager and walked most places. If you had a place in your life when you were a teenager stop in and get a great sandwich with fries and your favorite ice cream... More

If you want a great burger and fries this is place to visit. Staff is friendly and burger cooked to perfection. Grilled hot dogs are great as well.

This is an old school burger joint like you've not enjoyed since the 70's. When you think of a flat burger you think of that thing you find at those Golden Arches of woe. Not this thin burger, this thing drips of the flavors of your youth. After one bite you'll be transported back to your bell bottoms and your... More

Had never been so gave it a try. It's kind of fun, you sit outside at picnic tables right off a busy street on one side and a train track on the other. Place your order at the window and they bring it out to you. Typical burgers, fries, shakes, fare. Burgers weren't as tasty as I hoped they would... More

I picked up a to go order for myself and some colleagues. Everyone agreed that the hot dogs and cheeseburgers just okay. The toppings on the burger were fresh - thick cut onion, tomato, etc. The burger itself was a little thin and dry. The fried mushrooms, on the other hand, were delicious! And the ice-cream was yummy, especially the... More

Good place to grab a bite and enjoy the fresh air and occasionally a train whistle! We go for the shakes at least once a week...best in town! Usual fair, kind of a tasty freeze flair from back in the day...burgers, dogs, chicken, fries, ice cream and of course their Shakes! Friendly staff and fair pricing.

We stopped by on our way home for ice cream. Banana splits were ordered. Took a little longer than expected to rcv at walk up window. Something about a cup of soft serve with a few slices of banana and spoons of topping doesn't make a banana split. I would probably order something different in the future. Drive through was...

This is no 5 star dining experience, but it's cute and the food is tasty. It's a nice little detour from the restaurant circuit. My kids enjoyed the picnic tables dining experience. It was a fun way to take them out for a meal while Mommy was working late. The soft serve ice cream was nice treat for the drive... More

So Karin makes some decent ice cream. It's not the best I've ever had not the worst. The food on the other hand is an entirely different story. The only way I imagine this place stays open is that locals have a sense of duty to buy from there. My family went and got hamburgers and hot dogs, and corn... More
