To coincide with the other comments posted here, the food was good, the service lacked much to be improved on and that is an understatement. This was our first visit and we thought the food was good, worth the 20-30 minute wait for some hamburgers....More

This is a cool place to check out if you like the 50s era vibe. It's been there since 1953 & the old sign is there, some old 50s items & 50s music. Be prepared for a long wait for your food !! This place...More

I came for lunch with a co-worker, who recommended this place. They only have a walk up window or drive thru, we did the walk up window. The service was fairly slow compared to other burger joints, with the pricing slightly high. A small order...More
