We've lived in the Georgetown area a good while. We have tried this twice, neither time came away happy with the service. All you can eat isn't all you can eat if they don't bring it! It was good food, not excellent by far. Take that, the price and bad service maybe the third time will be the charm though... More

So glad we decided to try this cafe out! My 1/4lb Swiss Cheeseburger was amazing. My hubby really liked his BLT, too. And the strawberry shake we shared was so delicious! We especially love going to family-owned cafes, so this place hit the spot with its fun 50's type theme as well. It was clearly popular with the locals, too.... More

Went in for lunch with another manager from our store while it was being built. Both of us had burgers. Very tasty fries were awsome. NICE place!

Stopped while passing through. This place is charming and the food is delicious. I had the reuben and fries. I loved it. The balance of flavor was wonderful with melt in your mouth beef and cheese and the tang of the sauerkraut and some delicious rye bread. It really was great. My only critique would be to toast the bread... More

Always looking for an interesting place to try. On way home from Lexington and saw this on TA. Old style of a soda fountain. Several choices on menu - more of american fare. Very good food and good service. If like local restaurants, you must try Fava's.

Friendly, fun atmosphere, reasonably priced. All you can eat catfish on Friday is the best around. In downtown, close to the horse park.

Good old fashioned type place in the downtown area. Excellent fast, friendly service. I just kept it simple and had the burger and fries. I would recommend this place over your chain type establishments all day.

Enjoyed our dinner here so much we came back the next day. A lovely town to walk around. Talked to the grandson of the owner and the wait staff were all friendly. Food was good and fun with local specials and a milk shake you haven't seen for years! Won't even fit in the glass.
