If you are in or near Front Royal, Virginia, here is a great burger place. Has the charbroiled taste of a fresh ground burger. Prices are reasonable. Fries were good too. It is getting hard to find these really excellent burger restaurants. Atmosphere is casual....More

This place came highly recommended. Burger was juicy and cooked well was not dry. This was one of the best burger I had in long time. Fries was great and to finish with a strawberry sundae with a bite of strawberry in each spoonful.

This is a local place. We had the burgers, and they were very good! Didn't try the custard, but it is probably good. Great place to have lunch before heading down Skyline Drive.

Just a white square box outside but always loaded with customers inside and waiting cars outside. A neat kind of throwback to the 50's. Cars line up on the outside to place their orders at the window and then move up waiting for someone inside...More

We stopped here on our way through from Luray to DC mostly for a bathroom break and to grab a drink. The crowded parking lot was an indicator that this must be a good place to stop. When we went in, oh my goodness, it...More
