While going to Cops and donuts we stopped here for lunch. It is a small cozy place. This is one of those neighborhood diners. The staff was friendly. I ordered two burgers and fries. The wife ordered the 1/4# cheeseburger. The hamburgers were cooked well...More

Passing through Clare I noticed the hamburger sign on a quaint little restaurant. Great service & tasty hamburgers. Limited space inside, also tables & service outside. We'll definitely stop again when in the area.

The place is really tiny and not many tables. We had great burger and Rueben. Service is friendly. Very popular spot for the locals and the tourists. The waitress was very friendly.

A quaint tiny restaurant with two older employees who just go with the flow. The food is cooked to order and is delicious and filling. If you want a good homestyle breakfast, check out the White House!
