Unable to get chicken sandwich or a turkey burger here which is so disappointing. Many many mammals on the menu. Lots of various red meat burgers and options. Disappointed in the Falafel.

If you want a tasty burger with 50's style condiments and taste, visit this drive in for a trip back in time. Fast, clean and delightful. Easy on the pocket, too.

My husband and I eat here quite often. We love the interesting menu and never grow tired of choosing something new. Although we do have a few favorites as well. The service is great, we've never had a problem

A most wonderful salad--perfectly cooked ahi tuna and one of the largest servings I've ever been served. Two excellent sauces, crisp greens, nuts, bacon bits, red onions and tomatoes. Not your expected drive in fare. My husband liked his bison hamburger and French fries. Servers...More

Extremely small restaurant in an older building. Food was decent. Menu not too big but has more than run of the mill burger joint. I would go back.
