The food is marginal, but it is the only place I want to go in Provo for a shake. I think they do the best job of all the great places and it takes me back to my days at BYU. Love it every time.

This place looked like it had been around for a while. There was an old style looking jukebox and photos from the 50s & 60s on the walls. Looks like a place catering to the younger or student crowd. Like the name say they have...More

Only one person taking orders and making food. I got a BBQ burger--it was decent. Onion rings were delicious. Just slow to get food. The shake was delicious. Food was moderately expensive. The decor was awesome and the ambiance was great. It's 50/50 if I...More

The shakes are what they're known for, and they're tasty, as are the burgers, but they're expensive. It does have a good atmosphere with the cool oldies playing in the background and the TV with trivia on it as well.

It's just dirty and the food isn't good. We went once last summer and have never gone back. The food isn't even cheap. Everything just looks like it needs to be cleaned.

I've tried some of their shakes and have found that it's either hit or miss for me--my favorite (and something that I crave quite often) is their Peanut Butter and Banana shake. They mix in real bananas and peanut butter--and give you nearly 4 cups...More

What the heck decade is it supposed to be in there? it's like 50s thru 90s. Such a mess of a decor. Also, I'm from California, and I believe that a shake should be a drink. It should not stand up in the cup. Where...More
