Sharing can be a good thing - and when your 6" round burger, mammoth rings, and shake/malt with some left in the shaker arrives - you'll be glad you did. WOW - the old booths and burger bar just take you back. Love the food...More

Great traditional Hambergers and the best old fashion Chocolate Malts. A downtown favorite for a long, long time. When my Son was little he begged me to take him there all the time! He is 41 years old now!
