This is a landmark in New Buffalo. Hamburgers, beer, French fries. Friendly service. Now I can say I've been. Wouldn't say I'd go back.

This place stays busy, long lines that move quite well. After eating here, we understand why the lines! Great food, lots of choices including wings, salads, sandwiches etc.

The waitress was very helpful. Was suggested to order hamburger with Velveeta on it. I just had to try that since I haven't had velveeta in years. It was delicious! Good selection of draft beer also.
