My son and I stopped in for a burger and fries, and wanted to try something different. Their steakburger was great - I see why their best known for it. Fries were nice, hot, and crisp.

Burgers and fries that are hot and fresh made to order. We were impressed with the way you ordered it too. Because it was raining we ate in the car and couldn't enjoy picnic tables.

Best burgers and fry’s...always stop in Raleigh..(or on I95)...burgers cooked and you select size and condiments...tastes good, also like their French fry’s....they also have other things like hot dogs...they really grill fresh burgers, on a real grill....never disappointed stopping there....

I was not impress by these burgers. I wouldn't eat here again even though the prices are okay. I found a place that does it a little better.

My first visit was early 1980 while taking a class at NC State University so you could call this place iconic. Drop in and order almost anything on the menu and you'll likely LOVE it. Come and see why USA Today ranked it NC's best....More
