While the staff are nice enough, sometimes it's not enough to keep you coming back, if though you want to keep giving them chances. The food is usually extra greasy, even for a burger place, the onion rings way over-crisped every time and the milkshakes poorly sweetened with horrific choices of coffee syrup flavorings. The fries are ok at least.... More

Sorry to here the food was over cooked. Do you happen to remember what day you were there. If my cook is over cooking the food it needs to be addressed, It is hard to correct something that I don't no about until reading it online. Not sure what days you have tried to come in but the only day... More

I like this place because you can make your burger as big or small as you want. Different kinds of fries, GF options, and according to my grandkids the best milkshakes. Nice little local place to have lunch.

Easy access off highway 50. Great food and so many flavors of shakes. Friendly staff. Will go again and again.

I'm so sorry this was the case, I have talked to my employees and this is not the norm or nor will it be tolerated. I've worked very hard tho build my business and this is not what I want to hear with the people I hire. More

Wife had a vegi burger and sweet potato fries. Both were freshly prepared and nicely presented. Our waitress was attentive and had a pleasant personality. Dining area and restrooms were... More

We were traveling thru from Napa to Lake Tahoe and stopped here for lunch. Cute little place and clean. Service good and burgers and fries hit the spot. Nice little respite from our journey.

I recently stayed in Pollock Pines with my son and his wife. This is one of their favourite places to eat and my mushroom and swiss cheese burger was so delicious... We sat outdoors on the patio (summer there) with their two small dogs. My beer was only $3 and it was a very relaxing experience...their sign says everything is... More

Yes, the burgers are as good as the reviews! We stopped for a late lunch, basic cheeseburger for me and a jalapeño burger and fries for the husband. Delicious!! I loved that we got crisp green leaf lettuce and fresh sliced tomatoes on the burgers, everything was super fresh. We were too full to have shakes but they had plenty... More

Rustic doesn't begin to describe the building and decor you find here...it's certainly old time, but comfortable and reassuring. While I was there, it was visited by a couple of groups of teenagers, and an older couple were getting ready to leave when I arrived. So all age groups seemed to like it here. The food was basic, but was... More
