Burgers and sandwiches kind of place. Home made root beer is the best I've ever tasted. Quick and cheap, tasty food.

We had a late lunch and ordered hamburgers, fries, onion rings, and root beer. Besides being famous for their root beer, served in a frosted mug, they should also be famous for their fries! They were extra crispy, soft in the center, and not greasy...More

I was working near this location looking for some place to have lunch when someone suggested it so 2 of us walked over. The business is somewhat run down and needs work on the exterior and interior. Don't let that detour you from eating here....More
