I started going here in the 1960's as a teenager. We just called it "The Grinder" back then. The last time I was there was in the late 60's while home on leave from the Army. Their beef grinder was always my favorite. After moving...More

Excellent combo sandwich - always good. Can't miss place for consistent delicious food. Only thing is come with cash, or have to use their ATM to pay. Should be world famous!

I'd eaten often at Connal's in years past, enjoying their big burgers and copious orders of French fries - easily enough fries for two from a single helping. But today was the first time in several years I stopped for lunch there. Lunch was a...More
