Right on 4th street. Outside seating is good when weather permits. Burgers are fresh and good. Old fashioned soda available. I expected more based on all those fantastic reviews.

My go-to place for the best and juiciest hamburgers in town. This place has been around for as long as I can remember and for good reason. Their sandwiches and specials are excellent.

We decided to check out this place based on numerous recommendations from our local friends. It was truly one of the best burgers we have ever eaten. It was juicy, delicious, and the prices can’t be beat. It’s definitely more of a local place but...More

Although the name of this restaurant may throw you, it's really an all-American food place. Great burgers and sides, especially golden onion rings with smooth batter! Service is responsive too. Park in the lot behind the restaurant if you can find a spot.
