Extensive menu, fast service, lots of burgers served in paper, salad bar no longer exists. Its OK for a quick bite and better than the major chains. Table service.

My husband's absolute favorite restaurant. He loves the quick and friendly service, food is always very good. They only accept cash, fyi.

This restaurant is definitely a local dive. It has been around over 30 years, and many, many locals love it. The hot dogs, hamburgers, and hot fudge sundaes are the best. The service, recently, has been "meh" at best. The servers look/act, well, discombobulated. They...More
