Good place to eat! Has a big selection of burgers. The ribbon fries are one of my favorite sides. Also love the chicken pot pie soup i sometimes go there just for that.

A step up from fast food, and with an extensive menu. A bargain to eat there, just about anything or everything on the menu..

Loved this place. Had the best onion rings and burger I've ever had. Fried dill pickles were yummy, too. Waitress and staff was friendly. It's a greasy spoon from the fifties and we loved it.
