This is always a must visit when I'm in the area. Burgers are great, LOVE the milkshakes (black cherry chocolate chip my favorite!), the atmosphere is retro and fun. Very clean, friendly staff!

As soon as you walk in, you can tell the place has a major "throwback" sort of vibe to it. Old-school soda fountain-style dispenser nozzles, hand dipped ice cream, an open grill/kitchen island, and even the uniforms all work together to give the place an...More
