Stopped by this place on recommendation of a friend that used to live in the area. Burgers and fries were really good, but pretty greasy (as expected). Service was very fast and friendly. Lady was very nice and we chatted for a little bit. Cost was reasonable considering the amount of food you got.

The food was fine and was reasonably priced. Would visit again. I understand why no indoor seating. That is not a problem unless the weather is bad.

Cruiser's is not a franchise fast food. Menu is hamburgers, chilli dogs, my favorite Butcher Block, onion rings, fries and another local favorite chilli. Drive thru is very courteous, efficient and quick. Out door seating and small indoor seating available.

For drive thru and carry out only. But i must say they offer great selection, fast service, decent prices, and best tasting burgers in Effingham! It may be a little off the Interstate, but worth the journy across town to have a meal this good.

This is the best place in town to get a burger. All the locals eat here. Drive thru or carry out only. We always stop at Cruiser's when we come "home" to visit!

The food here is good and at a great price. The two double cheese burgers for $5 after 2pm is a good deal. Just wish they were open later in the evening.
