The atmosphere is like stepping back in time. However the staff is super efficient and polite. We didn't bring cash and the owner allowed us to just "stop back in to pay whenever we had cash". This is unheard of in this day and age....More

The cost of a burger or hotdog is over $4. That's ridiculous considering what it is! It's not worth it!!
