If you remember the old Royal Castle then you will enjoy Bates. They have wonderful chocolate shakes. The coney dogs are good, for those that don't like hamburgers. This place is also good for a quick, inexpensive breakfast.

Local burger, retro dinner place, small slider like burger, thick chocolate shake, great local stop, established 59' inside maybe 10 stools at counter, walkup window outside for call in or walkup orders, clean friendly staff, fun stop.

Enjoy these burgers very much. Coney dogs very good also. Crinkle fries are some of the best around.

Simple, unassuming and delicious. Nothing like Bates for sliders. Add crinkle cut fries and a coke and you have a party!
