Great little classic burger spot. Cool vintage lunch counter and red vinyl banquets. They stick to the basics... juicy burgers, golden fries and onion rings, and dozens of yummy shakes. We had lunch on a busy Saturday and had friendly and fast service.

The "Hey Good Looking" burger (I think that's what it's called.) was delish and I could have made a meal off the Parmesan fries! If we ever visit the lovely city of Bristol again, I'll make sure I save room for a root beer float....More

Forrd and service were great. Enjoyed sitting out front and enjoying the music from the restaurant across the street. Even though they were soon closing they let us sit and talk and enjoy the entertainment.

We picked this joint based on reviews and maybe we need to consider the options in the area. It could be the best option. We saw a lot of closed establishments. Service was great, fast and friendly. Food was okay. Not sure what the big...More
