Good burgers but wait time can be long since they are cooked to order. Just don't expect to be in and out quickly. Inside seating was good.

Had lunch today. Good food and we all enjoyed our meals. A little expensive for burgers and dogs but worth it.

I love this place. Reminds me of my teenage years. Burgers, chili dogs, great fries and a malt--who could ask for more? Family/kid friendly and they give veterans a discount too.

Not much to say. The burgers are always good. Fish is really decent for the price. Nothing fancy but generous portion for not much money.
