Although I've eaten inside, I've mostly used their drive-thru, which is very well organized so the line keeps moving - and their is usually a line! Their hot dogs, hamburgers, and beef sandwiches are great - and you can't go wrong with their chocolate cake!...More

the food is always the same which makes it very good. So many choices so you can go there if you are in the mood for a hot dog, burger, salad or ribs.
