I have to say one of the best burgers out there, especially for the $5 special! Cooked exactly to oder, fresh lettuce and very tasty pickles. too.

Soda is well carbonated and service is usually excellent as well. Beer selection is typical and nothing special so we just get a cold soda and/or ice tea every time "Happy Hour" is buy one get one, so if you just want one drink, you'll end up with two.

Love the cole slaw, but hit and miss on how it is. When it's good, it's delicious! Sometimes it comes out very dry and flavorless. Tater tots = awesome every time as is the burger!

Walked in with my family and sat down. A big roach crawled across the table - we got up and walked out. My daughter screamed!

It was Memorial Day and they still featured their burger Monday deal. What a deal. If you like pink in your cooked burger, order it medium rare. Otherwise, it comes out with a gray interior. We asked the wait staff and they were spot on. The sweet potato fries are better than any other location, served with apple butter, which makes them like eating dessert.
