What is left to be said about this legendary hamburger stand? The burgers are old fashioned, grilled works of culinary art that have delighted everyone from the guy on the street to the guys who have called The White House home. A 5 out of 5 rating

Typical small town specialty hamburger bar, serving burgers with a "special" sauce, fresh hot fries, and assorted pies. This Burger spot is an institution that is older than any other restaurant business in the area. Try it for the ambiance, the dressed burgers, and the people sharing the service bar with you who have never met a stranger:) Enjoy! *********I... More

Perhaps a bad day when we went they have been around forever. However, the burgers took an hour and 15 minutes to get, there were flies everywhere, the burger tasted like government cheese, and was small, local rift raft was coming and going. Not a pleasant experience and not going back.

We stopped here for a quick bit to eat while we were waiting on a funeral. The place looked like a throwback from the 60's. No tables, just stools along the counter. Normal greasy dinner food, it was good but really nothing special. The burgers were made to order and cooked on the grill right in front of you. The... More

One small lunch counter with fabulous friendly staff and food was great. Cheeseburger and chicken sandwich from the grill were old fashion and delicious. The best part was the diced potatoes and onions swimming in butter on the grill. You have to try this place.

It has been in business for 50-60 years, with 3 locations. People, young and old. love Ferrell's Burgers. Many younger people make it the place to go after the night's fun times are over. If not just for the food, they go to say they have been there. Don't feel left out when the conversation turns to Ferrell's. Try it.... More
