The place was very disorganized in terms of the staffing. They were busy at 3 in the afternoon. There was no hostess seating people even though they seemed like there was plenty of staff. We were waited on by Ryan and he seemed on top of his game. He provided good service to us and corrected an error on the... More

Drive-through order. Single sandwich, shake and iced tea. All good. Fast service considering cook to order.

WE ate here with my two grand children at noontime one day. We have been here before and it has not changed! It is filthy! The floor is filthy, the counters and tables are sticky, the bathroom was dirty and the condiment containers etc had not been wiped down in days! The floor was the grossest I have seen with... More

My family loves S&S. We come here about every other month. This is my third review of them. I did one when they took my Chicago Dog off their menu. I did another when they brought it back months later. Now I have to do it again because they do not have the Footlong Chicago Dog, only the regular size.... More

This is always a favorite request by any members of my family. You can get any hamburger topped with virtually anything you can think of. Service here has continuously been outstanding. They have always gone above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. If you want a great milkshake or malt, this is where to come. Beyond excellent.

I have just 're-discovered' S&S. Attracted by their $4 menu for a late lunch, I really enjoyed my meal from their generous assortment of $4 choices. From burgers to chicken fingers to spaghetti to hot dogs...take your pick. And best of all...from 2-5 [I think] their terrific milk shakes are HALF PRICE...and the classic shakes are only $3 to start... More

On a whim we decided to stop for lunch, and we actually opted for the $4 lunch. It was amazing. The cheeseburgers were delicious. The fries were the really thin kind, but they were hot and good. I wouldn't pay extra though to get the seasoning...it was just a sprinkling of cajun spice...it was not baked into the fries. We... More

I was here last night and the service was terrible. The girl didn't get our order right and the food was old and nasty. It took them over 45 minutes to even bring us our waters. We ended up leaving everything as it was on the table. Only one of the waitresses did anything the other one had no idea... More

The Alpine Ave location is always crowded on weekends. While I like the shakes and their steakburgers, the wait time is a bit too long.
