You have to love a place where you can still walk up to the window, place your order and wait to pick up the satisfying comfort food. Burgers are great, shakes are fantastic!

Always enjoy everything we have had off the menu. Great grilled cheese if you are looking for something to eat on Fridays during Lent.
