We had a group of 6. Wish I could remember our waitress' name. She was from Bulgaria and was fantastic! Great burgers, great fries made fresh from potatoes, great Apple pie. Even had sweet tea! Inexpensive with good menu. Free parking, great service.

Stop by, you won't regret it. Hamburgers are really good with fresh made buns. Apple pie is good too.

I decided to stop in for dinner tonight. But I absolutely hate being rushed to eat and it's all it was. I ordered the bacon meatloaf and soup and my son had a grilled cheese. The meatloaf came out before I even got my soup!...More
