This is a loose meat sandwich style restaurant. Different beef choices or some chicken options and salads. I enjoyed the onion rings. These were the driest I had ever eaten in my life. No oil or greasy residue on fingers. Others got ice cream cones...More

Second rate fast food - and I do not understand the appeal of the Runza sandwich. Just go to a better place - they are everywhere.

Came here and ordered fries and a cheese burger. The order came as a bacon double cheeseburger. I didn't complain and enjoyed the delicious sandwich. The fries were pretty good also. A good place for a tasty snack. 1 dollar drinks and ice cream!
