Delicious variety of hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, etc. Sides include deep fried cheese curds, French fries, ice cream and the worlds best popcorn. They offer a drive thru and also inside dining. It's clean and the food is delicious. Also a good value for your money.

Always friendly staff, decent food for fast food, quickly made. Best chocolate malts. The Tominator is an excellent hamburger. They even have doggie treats at the drive through window. Everyone in the family gets something!
