Best fast-food "burg" around. Great service! Nothing beats car-hop service and a tray of good food on the car window.

A wonderful “drive in” restaurant from the 30’s where the servers literally run to your cars with the food. EVERYTHING was fantastic - from the burger, to the baloney sandwich, to the drinks - all spectacularly done! A standout was the mint drink. - a very light mint drink which doesn’t sound good - but is incredible! This is a must visit in the area - and the original place (this is a local chain) to visit!
