This chain restaurant offers a variety of burgers and shakes. The menu is on the wall, you order at the counter, and they call your number. The staff was helpful and very friendly. The food was up very quickly, and it was served piping hot....More

Service was fast. We ordered 2 fries and got and was charged for 3. The shake was okay. Truly, no healthy choices at all. No soup, salad or anything for anyone that didn't want a burger.

Had a great burger on the go before the fireworks. Had to wait, but not a lot was open. Did not mind because I know the burgers are good. I would highly recommend this over almost any other fast-food chain, except the one mainly on...More
