A really cool little spot for lunch or dinner. Sort of makes you feel like you're stepping back into a 50's burger & shake joint. They offer some really great food, including burgers, hot dogs, cookies, ice cream, and even garbage plates. The prices are...More

We drove almost 20 miles to go here on Sunday and they were closed. They need to UPDATE their listed hours so folks don't waste a trip with much disappointment.

The food was OK, not spectacular. The meat sauce was dry. The side dishes of salad were extremely small. The prices were reasonable, however I would not eat here again.
