Don’t miss this place when visiting the area. Price is very reasonable and the food is amazing! We had burgers and fish tacos, both are delicious.

I am not particularly a burger joint kinda gal. I like sit down restaurants with small plates and a bottle of wine. We decided we wanted something quick on our vacation to Orlean. We got the burger with the fried onions, fries, onion rings, and...More

Probably one of the best hidden gems of of the Cape. Unbelievable burgers and a Fried Chicken Sandwich to die for. Fasts service(although it was crowded, we waited less than 10 minutes to get our order).

Have you ever had a Bacon Dog?? (Bacon, avocado and spicy mayo)....it’s a busy venue, so be patient. It’s well worth any wait. Others enjoyed a lobster roll, fantastic fried fish sandwich and, of course, the onion rings!!! Don’t miss this venue !!

Really like this place for quick lunch! Hot dogs are delicious. Fish tacos quite tasty. Actually options for vegetarians. French fries are the best in town. Good shakes. Nice outdoor seating for a place that is so close to the road.

We had burgers, hot dogs, salads and milk shakes and it was all well done. The burgers have tasty specialties and also the fries were perfect. Go there!!

The place was suggested by our kids. It is simply "fast local food" with all the spectrum of Cape dishes. Service is quick and food is fresh and tasty. Those were two things we were only looking for.
